I love this feature but I was thinking of a way to speed it up, I currently have 2 sets of tasks that utilize this feature but i have nearly 5000 videos in the queue, and it takes 1-2 days for the queue to re-populate after a reboot. I use this open source program called mediainfo ( https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo ) and I can right click on any video file and choose “Mediainfo” and it will pop up all the details about it, container, codec, you name it… Might be something worth looking into integrating to help speed up that particular search task. Also I’d like the codec search to be a multi select, not just a single. I have 2 sets of tasks because I’m converting mepg2 and mpeg4 into mpegh/hevc to squeeze every byte and bit out my hard drive space Thank you for your time and consideration!
OH another idea, where you wouldn’t integrate anything would be to store a cache file of the files name/date hash and codec/container info… that could also greatly increase time after a reboot, but wouldnt do anything for initial search whereas mediainfo program could still be useful… just some thoughts
