0Media Center Master LogoAdvanced post-processing with Media Center Master

I use Media Cen­ter Mas­ter and Stark­Cov­ers to man­age the metadata for all my loc­al media on my HTPC.  I like to have HD movies and DVDs use a dif­fer­ent style of cov­er in stark to the style used by low qual­ity files.  The fol­low­ing com­mand script accom­plishes this (and a bit more)…

C:
CD\Program Files (x86)\Media Center Master\StarkCovers.10.28.2009
IF "%2" == "BD" goto bd
IF "%2" == "HDDV" goto bd
IF "%2" == "DVD" goto bd
IF "%2" == "mkv" goto bd
start "" /WAIT /I /SEPARATE StarkCovers.exe %1 -codec -revertjpg 3d2
goto end
:bd
start "" /WAIT /I /SEPARATE StarkCovers.exe %1 3d%2 -revertjpg
:end

In the Media Cen­ter Mas­ter post pro­cessing options I have poin­ted the post-pro­cessing option to the com­mand file, and in the para­met­ers field I have put %F %C (without quotes!)

Basic­ally this uses the Media Cen­ter Mas­ter detec­tion and calls Stark dif­fer­ently depend­ing on the type of file.

Stark seems to have prob­lems using MediaInfo.dll to identi­fy some types of files, so this com­mand script also passes the file type detec­ted by Media Cen­ter Mas­ter dir­ectly to Stark for the non-HD files to avoid any errors.

This Script could eas­ily be expan­ded to provide for all sorts of cus­tom cases
