I've got a bunch of individual TV episodes set up in VIDEO_TS folders. They play perfectly, but it seems like most (if not all) metadata scrapers really want to see individual files in a season folder:


tv shows\\scrubs\\season 2\\s02e04.whatever


I can just move my .vob files into this setup, rename the file with the season/episode number and all is well - files still play no problem and now the metadata scrapers fill in.


The only thing I lose is being able to skip/select chapters. Is there a way to do what I want AND keep chapters?

I also lose the ability to fast forward and rewind. I can just do the 30 seconds ahead and 10 seconds back like I was watching live tv.


Does MakeMKV do what I need?

i use make mkv to rip my tv show for metadata scraping, you will lose the chapter skipping though.

I think I'm going to rip to ISO. It's the easiest, most universal format IMO. And I've tested just about everything before I undertake ripping my entire collection.


It meets my needs. I can extract only what I want - main title and best quality soundtrack. It can easily handle forced subs. I retain chapter information and the ability to rewind and fast forward. It's a single file, so it makes metadata scraping much easier.


I use 7MC, Media Browser, TotalMedia Theater 3 Platinum and Virtual CloneDrive. Things couldn't be more seamless. In the MB setup, I set TMT3 as the external player for Blu-rays (I let 7MC handle DVDs) and set VCD to mount ISOs.
