Track order makemkvcon vs MakeMKV GUI

Post by mgutt » Sat Aug 03, 2019 6:58 pm

I found out that makemkvcon returns the tracks in a total different order than MakeMKV GUI. Example:

makemkvcon
MSG:3307,0,2,"File 00050.mpls was added as title #0","File %1 was added as title #%2","00050.mpls","0"
MSG:3307,0,2,"File 00001.mpls was added as title #1","File %1 was added as title #%2","00001.mpls","1"
MSG:3307,16777216,2,"File 00040.mpls was added as title #2","File %1 was added as title #%2","00040.mpls","2"

MakeMKV GUI
Datei 00000.mpls wurde als Titel 0 hinzugefügt
Datei 00001.mpls wurde als Titel 1 hinzugefügt
Titel 00002.mpls ist mit Titel 00000.mpls identisch und wurde übersprungen
Titel 00003.mpls ist mit Titel 00001.mpls identisch und wurde übersprungen
Titel #00014.mpls hat eine Länge von 245 Sekunden und wurde übersprungen, da die minimale Titellänge 600 Sekunden beträgt

What is the reason for this? I like to convert the title id of MakeMKV GUI to makemkvcon.

EDIT: Ah ok. MakeMKV GUI sorts by mpls filename. And makemkvcon?

I believe the console app returns the data "raw", as it is read from the disk's directory. BD authors do not seem to feel there is any obligation to sort the directory structures on their disks.

Hmm ok. I'll try to loop through all titles to obtain the same sort.
