hi - thanks so much for replying.
I have managed to get to the stage where I can use a cmd line with cc_converter.bat - I eventually worked out I needed to edit the .bat file to show pathway for CLASSPATH (like I said totally new to all this but giving it a go and learning -a lot - as I go!)
so I am now getting from cmd after typing cc_converter.bat
Chromecast Converter - V2.1.0
Input File or Folder cannot be empty
usage: ./cc_converter <opts>
-i,--input <arg> Input file or folder
-o,--output <arg> Output folder (optional)
-q,--quality <arg> Quality: high, normal, low. Default is high (optional)
-s,--speed <arg> Speed: ultrafast, superfast, veryfast, faster, fast,
medium, slow, slower, veryslow. Default is slow (optional)
-f,--force Force conversion (even if input codecs are correct)
-d,--delete Delete the original file upon successful conversion
--DEBUG Debug mode with more logs
I know there must be somewhere to type in the options but I am at a loss. I'm trying to run the following from your list of suggestions but obviously I'm getting something wrong.
•Default values, entire collection to different folder, delete after success conversion
./cc_converter -i ~/Videos/ -o ~/ChromecastVideos -d
if I try (using my locations)
./cc_converter -i ~/cctest/ -o ~/cctest2/ -d
I get '.' is not a recognised command etc - I assume because ./cc_converter is for java rather than windows cmd ?
so I try
cc_converter.bat -i ~/cctest/ -o ~/cctest2/ -d
I get the original
'Input File or Folder cannot be empty' error
so I try
cc_converter.bat -i ~\cctest\ -o ~\cctest2\ -d
so I try cc_converter.bat -i ~c:\cctest\ -o ~c:\cctest2\ -d
I think I'm close but could be a million miles away! I've been through the batch file to see if the settings are there but I cant work out where they would go?
If you get 5 mins to read this and make a suggestion I (and my wife who has had to put up with my swearing) would be very grateful.
just to recap I've installed java (in c:\program files and ffmpeg and cc_converter-2.1.0 in the c:\ the folders I am using to test this with are c:\cctest which has an avi copy of Die Hard - (because its Christmas) and output folder is c:\cctest2
in the meantime I will keep tinkering away and hopefully work it out!
