The program feels a bit more... unstable lately. I've had it crash when adding/removing files to the queue and when adding/removing files from the watched list.
Yea, I'm going on a feature freeze for a while and just focusing on bug fixing as I see crash reports come in on the store dashboard. If you have any reproducible cases, definitely let me know in this thread or PM. I just found another crash yesterday where I managed to exit the app after file hashing had completed, but before the anime library had regenerated so some of the episode loading would fail because they were using old, invalid file indices.
Also, right now I tried adding episodes that were previously unrecognised (as AniDB didn't have them listed) manually. It ended up like this.
After checking another file from the folder, it looks normal again.
Is there a way to batch check unrecognised files? EDIT: Found out how (selecting each file I want to get refreshed from the list and then refreshing), but it doesn't always work until the end.
I'm not quite sure what happened in your screenshots so if you manage to get it again, definitely let me know. Just be sure you're assigning file IDs
to unrecognized files, not episode IDs (the URL should have fid, not eid, in it). If AniDB doesn't have a file entry for your file, you'll need to use something like AOM to add it to AniDB or just assign it a file ID of another group's release. Also, what do you mean that batch check unrecognized files doesn't always work until the end?
It doesn't show H265 (8-bit) file info, which appears to be natively supported in Windows 10 (unlike 10-bit H264). Also, it somehow recognised the show I've manually added earlier as being encoded in 8-bits, where it's actually encoded in 10-bit H264. Are the file details pulled from AniDB (as that h265 file does not have any proper metadata in AniDB)? Even so, how did it correctly generate previews while using the default Windows thumbnailing if it is encoded in 10-bits? I am confused.
All file details are pulled from AniDB entries, not from actual file metadata, so as you noted, if AniDB doesn't have proper metadata for a file, the tooltip won't show anything correct/useful. If a thumbnail preview was correctly generated, are you sure the file is 10-bit H264? I don't ever see thumbnail previews for 10-bit H264 or HEVC/H265 in Windows Explorer.
