Post with as much of that path that is complete.

OK i had c:\ drive hardcoded for location of Program Files. Replace these two programs, InstallAutoXvid.exe and EpisodeData.exe. Rerun InstallAutoXvid and then try your Drag/drop.
Lee Cole
Sorry leecole I added the two files to my install but I still have the same problem with the EpisodeData.exe saying it can find the file. My program files are located in D:\AVI\Snapstream\Beyond TV3 I could not find MetaDataExtractor.exe in the wwwroot subdirectory.
Would it be possible to get a complete zipfile of the files needed to install? I want to rule out the possiblity that I may in all the install/uninstall attempts that I haven't lost something.

prototask,
This is hard, troubleshooting by posting back and forth, so bear with me. I can't provide a zip (I don't own WinZip) or a rar of the correct level, I don't have nor can I afford a development program that keeps a base copy and caches changes that would allow rebuilding at any development level. I have already started development of a new release (the InstallAutoXvid,exe may have built parameters in your INI that are meaningless at the level you are at). You could redownload the latest rar from the first entry of this forum, Unpack it into a AutoXvid subdir, install the new InstallAutoXvid.exe and the new EpisodeData.exe replacing the two that were just unpacked, then run InstallAutoXvid.exe. It is quite possible, that the MetaDataExtractor.exe was lost in a prior installation, since the original installation tried to move it from AutoXvid dir to a dir that did not exist. Something still bothers me though. You say "D:\AVI\Snapstream\Beyond TV3", I would have expected D:\AVI\Program Files\Snapstream\Beyond TV3". Does your taskbar "START-All Programs" list SnapStram-Beyond TV? In other words, does your OS know where snapstream is located. I think the Install program that SnapStream uses would obtain the location of the "START-Program Files" from the OS to install itself. Or did you install it, then later zip it up and move it to another drive? If that is the case, then I know of no way that my software will be able to locate BTV. If however the OS "knows" that it's 'Program Files' folder is really D:\AVI, then the new InstallAutoXvid and the new EpisodeData should work.

Before we go further, START-Run-regedit and tell me what HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Snapstream Media\Beyond TV\InstallDir says. Is it correct? And if so is there a wwwroot subdir at that location? Maybe that is what I could use. Not as simple as getting the system "Program Files" folder, but maybe better.

Re: [addon] AutoXvid (Aug 18 Update)

Lee,
Hi, and Thanks for the reply! I do in fact have 2 PVR250's, but in this case I am recording 2 shows back to back meaning the 2nd starts 1/2 hr after the first. AutoXvid kicks in right after the first show ends and it is stll running AutoGK by the time the second show ends a 1/2 hr later, so they are then running AutoXvid in tandem from that point on.
I did some more testing on one of the failing episodes and I may have a new clue, when I tried doing a drag/drop of the .avi onto the episodedata icon, it will fail every time with error screens (attached below) which seem to be pointing at metadataextractor as the maybe the guilty party here....

I checked the registry and Beyond TV is installed at the location in the registry and that location has a wwwroot subdirectory. What I find is that when I run InstallAutoXvid.exe the MetaDataExtractor.exe file disappears. I ran a search of my system and it is not on any drive.

prototask, I replaced the InstallAutoXvid and the EpisodeData with ones that do a registry read to get the location of BTV and install the MetaDataExtracter there. I also added the MetaDataExtracter to that post. Go back to #135 and get these three exe's, put them in your AutoXvid folder, rerun InstallAutoXvid to get MetaDataExtracter installed, then try your test again. As I said earlier, you may have some unused parameters in your INI. If they aren't documented in the comments of the INI, then they are the unused ones. They shouldn't cause you any problem however.

I wonder if we could get away with you posting the avi and the xml so I could try to duplicate the proplem.

leecole, that did it, I started an mpeg2 to xvid encode using drag and drop and it is running. If all goes well you will not have to hear from me again, but I will continue to sing your praise. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU

Hi Lee,

I noticed your post below and thought I would offer some comments:

7-Zip is an excellent free ZIP tool; you can get it from:

http://www.7-zip.org/

It does all the same things WinZip does and more. Its also free and opensource.

For this, try TortoiseCVS, from:

http://www.tortoisecvs.org/index.shtml

It is free, opensource, and was apparently the SourceForge project of the month for the month of December, 2004. I haven't used it myself, but it looks quite worthwhile. Theres a note about half-way down the page with a link to a FAQ that will explain how to setup a local repository on your machine (basically a private repository sitting on your computer that you can check things into/out of).

I'm not sure I understand the whole discussion about where Beyond TV is located; the only reliable way of determining where Beyond TV is installed is to look at the registry entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Snapstream Media\Beyond TV\InstallDir

If you use that registry entry, you should never have trouble locating Beyond TV on any computer on which it is installed. Hopefully some of this information will prove useful to you.

deria thanks, I think that it all will be useful. I just got both 7-zip and tortoisecvs and installed them. Looking forward to getting tortoisecvs set up. I finally realized on my own that I had to use the registry key Installdir. I had assumed that I could use the Windows Start->Program Files, but that just doen't cover the problem of a user that runs short of disk space on the C: drive.
Thanks for the pointers.

Re: [addon] AutoXvid (Aug 18 Update)

Hi Lee,
Got a new clue for you with regard to the failing runs I've been experiencing. I looked at event timestamps in AutoXvid.log vs. BTV's log file for both a succesful run and a failing run (which were recorded on different days so it's not just back to back recordings when this occurs) interestingly here's what I found...

First, here's my AutoXvid.log file for 2 shows recorded:

In the failing situation, the AutoXvid timestamp for EpisodeData being rejected occurred just before BTV recognized the new .avi file as being moved into the destination directory

2005-09-05 02:13:26 : EpisodeData was rejected by Beyound TV
[9/5/2005 02:13:27] Detected new media: D:\Video\MP4\seinfeld-(the cigar-store indian)-2005-09-04-0.avi

But in the good run, BTV recognized the .avi's presence before episodedata gets saved into it...

[9/5/2005 22:08:16] Detected new media: D:\Video\MP4\seinfeld-(the stall)-2005-09-05-0.avi
2005-09-05 22:08:17 : EpisodeData has saved episode data into

If I then try to drag/drop the failing show's .avi on EpisodeData afterwards it will always fail with that MetadataExtractor error (screenshots I posted earlier).

OK, based on your logs, it looks as if the problem is EpisodeData is attempting to import episode data into an AVI that BTV knows nothing about. I don't know which of BTV's many processes, detect the AVI, but I can certainly give up control for a period of time after I move the AVI into a BTV folder. So here is a update to the ScheduledRun.exe that gives up control to other processes for 3 seconds after the move occurs. When it regains control, then it will call EpisodeData to import the episode data. This is ScheduledRun.exe V1.0.3.1.
For the failing AVI and XML. Move the original XML to a safe place, in another folder, then drag the AVI to EpisodeData and drop. Compare the exported XML with the original XML. You can use Notepad or your Browser. Lets see how they differ. Lee

Re: [addon] AutoXvid (Aug 18 Update)

I just noticed that your EpisodeData program does not like filenames that include the "&" character. When I dragged "Wildfire-(Lost & Found).avi" onto the shortcut, I got an error. When I renamed the mpg and avi files, everything worked OK. Not a high-priority bug, but I thought you might like to know.

What kind of error? I will have to attempt to reproduce this. Underneith Episode Data a call is made to MetaDataExtracter.exe, perhaps it is affected by an & or .NET which it in turn uses to access BTV's database. I assume the error occured when you dragged the mpg to EpisodeData to extract episodeData? I haven't seen problems involving names, with EpisodeData. AutoGK has problems with several characters in Filenames, "," and "." as in "Yes, Dear" or "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington", but AutoXvid takes care of that by renaming them before any processing takes place. Renaming in EpisodeData becomes a harder issue to solve, since it is designed to be executed on the mpg from AutoXvid, and on the AVI from SchedledRun. I will do some testing. Thanks for the report.

It is .NET that doesn't like the "&" inside a XML file. I have fixed this in my XMLEdit func inside EpisodeData. All users: if the have V1.0.3.0 of EpisodeData (Right Click on EpisodeData icon, select propertys, then select Version tab, it will display that executables version) replace with the attached EpisodeData.exe V1.0.3.1.
