For the last few months, I’ve been dillegently ripping my media library to storage in MKV format.
Now, I’ve got a desire to do something to make the library a tad more “Owner” friendly…
I want to add about a 5-10 second splash at the beginning of all my MKVs that will show:
1- Audio tracks available (IE, if a Director’s Commentary is present)
2- Subtitle track usage (like, “Enable Subtitle track 1 for Alien Translation” or whatever.)
Something like this:
(Won’t be visible until Moderator approves.)
I’m a passable Perl programmer, so I can write a script to go through my ~1,500 files to pull this information OUT of the MKV files. I can also write an ImageMagick script to create pretty little PNG (or JPG, or whatever works best) files that have this information texted out.
But what I CAN’T find is a utility that will simply take that single image file and turn it into a 5-10 second MPEG file, which I could then prepend to my MKVs using MKVmuxer.
Anyone have any ideas?
