I'll give it a try to check compatibility.
Hi Remy and Dave, it seems quite compatible with latest releases (no tested deeply but works quite well).
Thanks for your efforts!


It is strange it works for you... 
Can you please post the result of your AVxCAT parameters dialog ?
Do you have V3.0.0 listed or v2.1.5 ?

I checked for compatibility but I could not get pipe results from any direct command issued from under drdialog with ffmpeg v3 build !
This is the first ffmpeg builf not returning messages into the pipe command issued from under AVxCAT !
Without a working pipe, conversion will not work.     

I checked my environment and installed Dlls and all are ok.
Until this issue is found and corrected, ffmpeg v3 is currently falgged as not compatible.

I've uploaded FFmpeg v3.0 to Hobbes,
Remy, do you want to update AVxCAT to support it.  Also let me know if there is anything I missed as v3.0.1 will be released shortly.

Thanks Dave,
I'll give it a try to check compatibility.

First be sure only have '\' and no '/'. You can use a translate(string,'\','/') to be sure all '/' are '\'
Then, you can have a look on lastpos()
e.g. lp = lastpos('\',string')

with string = E:\Projects\eJava\eJava-008, lp = 18

followed by a substr() function
e.g. path=substr(string,1,lp-1)

Or all together :

Any feedback about latest build ?

Just use the following commad:

stream( file2chek, "c", "QUERY EXISTS" )
( if empty string then file does not exist )
"C" is for command

You can replace "QUERY EXISTS"
"QUERY SIZE" - interesting in cas the file exist but its size = 0 !

Best regards.

Hi Dariuz,

New beta2 should be better due I found the unstability issue I could see sometimes. In particular situation, a process was called as mutch as you have files under the current directory instead of firering only ones (this resulted into overflow followed by AVXCAT crash). Now, this is corrected     

I just refreshed the beta2 on my server, please take the new one (some more updates - display of codecs, formats, version under help changed and simplified + thumbnail extraction when creating html for presentation is now very fast too - and now mp2 conversion works too and only ogv will not work)
Yes, you can use pre and post commands
put each command in a new line
no prefixed line or with a prefix of  'B'  (before) , it is placed as PRE command
e.g.     B @vol C:    or    @vol C:
If it is prefixed by 'A'  (after) then it is used as POST command
e.g.     A @vol C:

PS: This beta2 zip will show "beta4" under about.

Updated to beta2    ( change beta1 by beta2 from the download link to get the update )
( same as beta1 but changed and corrected seek position under video advanced option. Now, it is very fast  ;) , optimized some code and starting video using KMP player under video advanced option will start at selected start-time )

Any feedback about beta1 test ?

Hi Dariusz,

I changed several parts of the internal filemanager and corrected some other issue I found (e.g. drop down list for presets incorrect after prévious update).

File manager should be faster and of course better ( I hope )
I no more see the unstability issue I could find previously. I hope it is fine for you too now.
( No special debug entries added )

note: I used wrc.exe this time (it's ok)

Nice, I will give it a try.

It looks like drdialog is only compatible with an older version...  :(

Drdialog uses an old rc.exe, I tried a newer one but this one will not work with drdialog.
Any suggestion about a newer compatible rc.exe to use with drdialog ?

FFmpeg v3 (not under os/2 yet)

I'm going to increase the number of selectable CPU from max 4 to 6   ( auto should take all 6 CPUs )
Currently, I implemented the after user cmd option in addition to the pre user cmd option
I'l already working on the internal filemanager code and could reduce some processes (making it faster) but some kind of action under it always gives some unstability (but less than before)... Working more on it

...How many files do you have under the path you open through internal filemanager ? What is your path name where ?...
Not many files, about 6 files that match the filter extension...but about 18 files in total in that directory...the path name I've used is "G:\tmp\camtest"

From a process perspective here is what PSTAT returns:


Sure, not a lot of files...

This sounds like a simple smp problem and perhaps can be fixed by marking avxcat.exe as MPUNSAFE. At least it would be worth trying. I believe the syntax is
Code: [Select]
markexe MPUNSAFE avxcat.exe

Tried that already...same result...the only thing that seems to work is running 'setproc' utility...not sure who wrote that...but you can find it on Hobbes here =>

Here is something else I noticed. When I start up either PSI or Remy's app I see libc06b4.dll showing up in Theseus...but that is a DLL that is quite old and is "retired" both apps still pull it in, my DLL details are:

 2-01-05  10:21a    562710           0  libc06b4.dll

...and here is the full list of all libcxxx DLLs:

10-27-03   5:13p    230785         124  libc04.dll
 4-14-04   4:37p    356330           0  libc05.dll
10-26-14   8:17p     48179           0  libc06.dll
10-26-14   8:17p     48179           0  libc061.dll
10-26-14   8:17p    157161           0  libc062.dll
10-26-14   8:17p    157161           0  libc063.dll
10-26-14   8:17p    157213           0  libc064.dll
 8-11-08   5:53a   1353252         124  libc064x.dll
10-26-14   8:17p    157213           0  libc065.dll
10-26-14   8:16p   1361666           0  libc066.dll
 2-01-05  10:21a    562710           0  libc06b4.dll
12-30-11  11:08a    114176           0  libcbeta
 2-01-05  10:21a    562710           0  libcbeta.dll

So maybe some sort of DLL conflict where one of these is not SMP-safe?

I build the program under drdialog using rexx.

Hi Remy!!! on please...

- Corrected some code when clicking on files ( a proc was called 2 times )
- Added option under parameters to see LOCAL or USED drives ( was set to USED drives by default )
- Included code to check existing of a file called "owncmd.txt' under avxcat path into which some user os2 commands could be added ( do not include single quotes because avxcat will add single quotes at start and end of each included cmd line. these commands are put/issued prior the ffmpeg exe.  e.g.   CLS ...

OK, so I had closed all my front-end apps before testing, in case it might freeze my amazement and excillaration the Open File dialog box popped up and off I went picking files. Great...I shut-down the app, re-booted, re-tried the test to confirm the behaviour and ran straight into the same old freeze problem...why???

Well, I start up a few apps by default during system boot, one of them is PSI (IM client), through additional testing I found out that if I kill PSI before starting your app, it will open up the File dialog box fine. If on the other hand I leave PSI up and running the old behaviour persists and even the very 1st File attempt will lock things up.

Knowing this I tested further.

This time, having opened the File dialog once I wanted to rule out multiple File pick options, and here is where I ultimately got stuck. Even with PSI not running, attempting to open the File dialog for the second time will freeze the app. The LOCAL/USED drive settings did not seem to make a difference here.

One more test remains, and that is the "owncmd.txt" file approach...but as best as I can tell this only allows me to execute a "pre" command, is there a "post" command option as well? To avoid the freeze I effectively need to run in a single-core mode while using the app and only switch to all-cores when ffmpeg is actually running, then back to single-core only.

How many files do you have under the path you open through internal filemanager ?
What is your path name where ?

I found a unstability issue and may rewrite several part of the code for the internal filemanager...
