MCEtilites Beta Released

Chris L., ever vigilant on the MCE plugin front, posts about the beta release of MCEtilities 1.0. MCEtilities allows you to edit DVR-MS files and view metadata for DVDcml files. Additionally, the software can control (and rip from) DVD changers such as Sony's XL1B2 changer.

TGB Thread:

Now, if you are like me you are still reading this post
because you want to know if it will allow batch DVD Ripping, the Holy Grail for
such an inexpensive DVD Changer that doesn’t support DVD
. Well, right now the
answer is no, it doesn’t do batch DVD ripping.
According to the developer you will still need to click “Start Ripping.” However, he is currently investigating using
the Nero API’s to allow for batch ripping and transcoding. Exciting stuff, so stay tuned. There is also an SDK for VS2005 so people can
make their own plug-ins to edit/manipule/whatever DVD Changers, DVR-MS files,
and movie metadata.
