#3043 closed patch (fixed)

Allow ripping of multiple tracks to one file

Reported by: wseltzer Owned by: paulh
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.21
Component: mythmusic Version: head
Severity: low Keywords: mythmusic CD ripping
Cc: wseltzer@… Ticket locked: no


Rip multiple tracks from CD to a single file by specifying "Last Track" in the metadata editor. Useful for classical music, combining all movements of a piece into one file that stays together through randomizations.

(The UI leaves something to be desired still, but I wanted to post this before triggering too many conflicts with Paul's updates.)

The patch no longer applies cleanly to current svn because of all the changes made since it was submitted. I don't like the way it changes the metadata editor to do this because there is probably only a handful of users who will find this feature useful so I don't think its appropriate to make those changes visible to everybody. Also the editor is used in other contexts where the changes wouldn't be appropriate anyway.

I have an idea on how to do it in such a way that will confine the changes to the cdrip{.h,.cpp} and won't impact too much users who will probably never use this feature.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [13381]) Allow ripping of multiple tracks to one file.

This adds a new feature to MythMusic that allows you to rip several tracks to the same file, useful for classical music lovers who want to make sure all movements of a piece stay together.

You indicate which consecutive tracks you would like to stay together by highlighting the track in the track list on the rip tracks screen and pressing SELECT. The track number and length will change to '-' to indicate that the track will be ripped to the same file as the previous track. You can chain as many tracks together as you like.

The current implementation doesn't attempt to change the track numbers or track titles but you can use the metadata editor to manually change them if you wish.

Wendy not sure if this is exactly what you wanted, there was a few things in your original patch that I didn't know what they were for. Let me know if there is anything you would like changed.

Closes #3043.
