  1. ahhh okay then, how is things going on now may i ask?

  2. Getting there...

  3. OK - I have something for you to try. I ended up not using Excel.

    You can get it here:

    http://www.enosoft.net/dl.php?filename=EnosoftClipMarker.zip. Just unzip to any location you like. No installation required - just run the exe file. BUT - you must have the last version of our software installed (1.5.4). It was uploaded today.

    Here's a screenshot of the tool:



    It is very simple to use.

    1. Specify your CSV file
    2. Specify your DV source file
    3. Set you camcorder recording
    4. Press START
    5. Optionally, press STOP to abort
    6. Repeat from step 1 for each file

    The program will automatically stop when the video file has finished.

    You will see the Enosoft DV Processor running on your display - this is so you can see what's going on. Do not use it to start/stop the process - use the tool's controls.

    Note - the date of the video recorded is always 1/1/1. The time recorded is the number of the clip in minute increments. i.e., the first clip is 00:01:00, the 62nd is 01:02:00 etc. This makes it easy for you to identify the clip. You can have 24 * 60 = 1440 clips before the sequence repeats. It is up to you to make sure the CSV file is of the format that you sent to me, that the DV file is readable by our software and that the video isn't longer than the number of frames in the CSV file.

  4. John Miller, you are absolutely a genius! and also you suprised u werent going through the Excel macro thing.

    however, i do remember sending you one of the CSV file, and one of the lines showed the file directory of where the file is, which was an MPEG, do i just simply change that line to the directory of the identical DV-AVI file?

    also, some of them are in 16:9 aspect ratio, what do i have to do inorder to flag these videos (that are not aspect ratio corrected due to it being an ordinary DV-AVI file) to display correctly?
    Quote Quote  
  5. The program ignores the file location information in the CSV file. You just need to specify the location of the CSV file and the DV file. I didn't know if your DV files would be in the same location as the MPG. If they are, I can change it so you only have to specify the CSV file.

    I forgot about the 16:9 part. That's easy to deal with. The easiest way would be to put "_16_9" or "_4_3" in the CSV filename e.g., instead of "myexample.csv", use "myexample_16_9.csv" or "myexample_4_3.csv". Then the utility can change the aspect ratio in the DV info that gets written to tape. Remember, one file must be only 16:9 or only 4:3 - they can't be mixed.

    Re the Excel - I ran into an issue that I could have fixed but it was quicker to use VB .NET.

  6. so within the CSV file, i can delete the file directory and it shall still be fine?

    also, the CSV files that represent the 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios of the video, do i just simply put those in the filename itself?

    No need. The program ignores the information completely. It uses the location you specify when you click the '..' button for the DV source.

    also, the CSV files that represent the 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios of the video, do i just simply put those in the filename itself?
    Yes. Just change the name of the CSV itself - no need to add anything inside the file.

  8. okay then!

    however, i will be downloading the free version, would that have any affect to what im wanting to do exactly?

    John:

    As an FYI, the help file for version 1.54 does not seem to be working, I get the message -

    This program cannot display the webpage

    Most likely causes:
    You are not connected to the Internet.
    The website is encountering problems.
    There might be a typing error in the address.

    What you can try:
    Check your Internet connection. Try visiting another website to make sure you are connected.

    Retype the address.

    Go back to the previous page

    It won't affect you. You'll get a nag message when you close it. The version on our website is 1.5.4.

    Nope, XP has built in zip file support. If it's not working for some reason, try restoring it by following below

    Restore Windows XP ZIP File Opener
    Jan 12 2008 / 7:40 pm Was written by geekTips Viewed 992 times.

    By default, Windows XP can open .ZIP file type without using any other 3rd party software. But sometimes, if we uninstall a 3rd party file compression software doesn’t restore Windows XP feature to open .ZIP file type.

    To restore this feature again, just type this command from the Start -> Run menu.
    REGSVR32 ZIPFLDR.DLL

    Or, you also try this command:
    cmd /c assoc .zip=CompressedFolder

  16. no no no, the zip file thing is perfectly fine, i meant by actually opening Clip Marker, it doesnt want to open and Microsoft gives the error message and the option to send report or dont send.

    this is why i mentioned is it because i am using XP?

    Oh, right! Just downloaded and confirm I get the same thing (I'm using XP Home SP3). Here's a screenshot of the error dialog.

  19. Hmm.

    This will happen if you try to run the exe file from inside the zip file. The two files must be unzipped.

    Also, check that the Enosoft DV Processor is correctly installed. Even if it is the wrong version, the program will run but tell you the version is wrong (i.e., it won't just crash).

    Check that you have the right version of the .NET Framework installed (2.0 I think).

    I've just confirmed it works on my XP SP2 laptop using the file on our server.

  20. its not running from the zip file, it is extracted, and your software pretty much is installed correctly, i opened it and runs fine.

    and i also have .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 installed, what could be our problems here?

    Ditto for me.

  22. I'll have to look into this tonight since I am not at the PC with the source code.

    In the meantime, we can try to narrow down the cause. Copy and paste this code into Notepad and save it as fred.vbs on your desktop. Double click on the file. It should launch the processor and then wait for you to click an OK button. Let me know if this works.

    Code:
    Dim App 
    Set App = CreateObject("EnoDVProcessor.EnoDV2DVApplication.1") 
    App.Visible = true 
    MsgBox "Click OK to close...", vbOKOnly, "Example" 
    App.Quit
    Next - there are a number of example applications provided in a zip file in the DV processor's install folder (under Automation Samples). Extract the files and go to the folder named Bin. Launch each exe file and see if it does so correctly or crashes in the same way as the Clip Marker program. Where you see the DV processor and a separate dialog box, close the latter to terminate the program.

  23. done what you said, and fred.vbs does not suceed in opening up, and i would eventually get a script error message from microsoft.

    the apps from the Automation Samples folder, eeryone opens except for _LiveStreaming.exe which gives me the crash like Clip Marker.

    The fred.vbs script works fine for me.

    Of the Bin folder samples, Livestreaming gives the same crash error as Clipmarker, and Multilogo gives me an error dialog (shown in the image below), but seems to work if I click on the Continue button, all others work OK.

  25. Goodness.

    Undead - the script not working is very, very odd. Does the DV processor run properly if you launch it from the Start menu?

    Safesurfer - that's also very odd. I'll have to test some of these on a clean XP install (which isn't as nightmare-ish as it sounds since I have Virtual PC).

    Confound you, Microsoft!

  26. it is strange, the DV processor does run properly if you launch it from the Start menu.

    i will try the script again.
    Quote Quote  
  27. wait wait hold on! the script is now working! i didnt even do anything i think.

    however, ClipMarker still crashed.
    Quote Quote  
  28. Well it seems this isn't a new problem. I've come across a number of developers that have had their .NET based programs be just dandy on one machine and bomb on an other with the same errors. Now I have to find out why.
    Quote Quote  
  29. i see, that suprises me abit, how long would we have to wait to find out the problem?
    Quote Quote  
  30. Well, how long's a piece of string?

    I'll be disappointed (and frustrated) if I haven't solved it by Monday, though.
