3 hour movie? no it's not

Question

I have a video TS folder that I added to the conversion pane in popcorn 3.

After it added the file it came up with 4 different files.

Three of which were previews.

I then clicked on the main title and popcorn told me that it was a 3 hour movie.

I know that this is not true?

What's this about?

I then took the same file into Handbreak and it was telling me that the movie is 1 hour and 38 min which is true?

Anybody else having this issue?

Any ideas?

Your description confuses me. When I choose VIDEO_TS folders as the format in Popcorn and then select a VIDEO_TS folder to add to the window I get a description that includes an Options button. Clicking the options button gives me a list of titles that are in the VIDEO_TS. A drop down menu gives me a choice of all titles, main movie (probably the longest title in the set) and Custom. Choosing custom lets me choose a specific title and also a specific sound track if there are multiple audio tracks.

 

Is this the same as the way you did this?

no...I am adding files via the media browser. When I do I get the below image

I am now thinking that I need to add files via a different method?

as this method results in six different movies....

I am wanting a VIDEO_TS folder and convert it to an ATV format....fyi.

I am also finding it to take a long time to add an AVI file to the video file queue.

so long that it hangs and I am having to Force Quit....... after waiting for 10 min to add 6 AVI files.......

Do not add the files from the VIDEO_TS folder via the Media Browser. There is one situation where you want to do it this way with a VIDEO_TS folder - when you want to extract just selected chapters rather than entire titles. Otherwise use the VIDEO_TS folders setting beneath the Player list. When the description appears click the Options button. In the window that appears Popcorn pre-selects what it thinks is the Main movie. If it isn't correct choose Custom to select just the title(s) you want or choose All for all titles. You can add multiple VIDEO_TS folders this way to create a batch processing list.

 

When you are done click Okay. Now you're ready to export to ATV.

 

You won't be able to add AVIs to the window with the VIDEO_TS folder titles. You'll need to do those as a separate batch. There is a way to do them all together but it involves extra steps, takes extra time and uses more hard drive space. Here it is:

 

Select Video Files as the Format in the Player section. Add your AVIs. Place your VIDEO_TS folder on the desktop (not inside any other folder). Choose DVD with the top button of the Media Browser. In a few seconds an item appears in the browser window. Double-click on the item or use the second button to go down one level. Now you'll see each title that's inside the VIDEO_TS folder. Select the title(s) you want and add them to the main window. Popcorn will extract the MPEG files from the VIDEO_TS folder. This will take several minutes. Now you can do the batch process.

 

The above also is the way to extract individual chapters from titles within a VIDEO_TS folder. The second button in the Media Browser can access both the title and chapter levels.

 

I don't know why you're experiencing the delay adding AVIs to the cue. I've noticed some sluggishness as Popcorn evaluates the format of videos but not to the point where I had to force quit. But I'm still just getting started with this version myself.
