ChapterX: Humble Chapter Tool replacement

September 9, 2011 — Leave a comment

My new pet project: ChapterX. About a month ago I got email. Author was asking how much effort would it take to code Chapter Tool replacement. My estimates were “one day or so” and since this idea crossed my mind before I decided to start. Turned out – my estimates were overly optimistic (aren’t they always that way?). In one day I coded chapters support and then hit a roadblock: artwork and links. It took couple more days toying with libmp4v2 to get artwork working. So far that’s it. Chapters and artwork, links are still to be implemented. Although all the plumbing is there, in the file – my ipod touch just refuses to show any links. But I hope it’s something I will figure out later.

And now latest version of ChapterX available for download: ChapterX 0.3.
