Metadata modified from WTV to MP4

Dec 28, 2014 at 2:56 PM
SW release 2.4.1:

When transcoding a WTV file to MP4, metadata is being changed (see image).


Left is before the conversion, in the right picture title is changed.

The below may help .....

This is the custom commands used to rename the title to include name of the episode.

This has to be put in the profiles.conf under the conversion type being used ---

**** MP4 Normal is an example of what I currently use. Change it to what you use accordingly.
**** Note the path below may not be the path you use, so change it accordingly.

CustomCommandPath = "E:\ProgramFiles\MCEBuddy2x\atomicparsley\atomicparsley.exe"
CustomCommandParameters = ""%convertedfile%" --overWrite --title "%showname%%season%%episodename%""
CustomCommandShowWindow = False

What will help us here is looking at the conversion log, it'll tell what's going on.

Somewhere along the way the metadata is changing and we need to find out why. Most likely it's due to the internet lookup which is matching and updating the details.
Try unchecking the option to download information from the internet and see if that fixes the issue.

This issue has been fixed with the latest 2.4.2 build, please download it and test it from the early access server
You have an option now in the Metadata correction page in Expert Settings to have IMDB overwrite your title if you choose to use the IMDB Title.
