Doesn't seem to work in VRD version 5 or is it just me?

This is the output of the ad fix thingy from VRD Version 5.

Erik,

Would it be possible to escape the '&' char(s) to '&' in the <Filename> element of the .vprj file output for VideoReDo type 3 outputs, as originally requested by Jagad in a post dated Nov 1, 2014 in this thread?

The unescaped '&' makes the .vprj file unacceptable to the latest version (5) of VideoReDo. My program VAP ( http://www.videoredo.net/msgBoard/showp ... ostcount=1 ) , which runs VRD and Comskip, can be modified to correct the .vprj file after comskip creates it but having comskip do it correctly seems much cleaner.

I believe this escaping only needs to be done for VRD type 3 project file outputs.

Thanks

Out of curiosity, was this handled in .83?

Nope, but it is in build 0.81.085 available now, only for videoredo3 output format.
Please test live_tve processing as I got a report there may be something wrong in the new builds

So now 6 years later the Videoredo guys finally added Unicode to their software. The comskip videoredo3 format works as it should in nearly all parts.
Had a hickup though. Their xml parser requires an additional line added to the videoredo3 format. Dan 203 explains it here
XML containing unicode characters requires a special header. It's the only way the parser knows to treat every character as 2 bytes. We support both the BOM character or the UTF8 or UTF16 encoding types declared in the XML header like so...
https://www.videoredo.net/msgBoard/index.php?threads/vprj-file-containing-unicode-stars-in-filename-fails-to-open.37391/#post-132936

So Erik I wonder if you could add the following line to the top of the videoredo3 output

Code: Select all

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8" standalone = "no" ?>
Then it works to pass or batchprocess Vprjs with special Unicode chars with VRD.

EDIT! Although such a change might break the compatiabillity for TVSuite v.5 users. Perhaps divide the output formats to "output_videoredo5" and "output_videoredo6" as earlier suggested?

Best regards
Jagad
