Movie DB file structure scan

Hello,

 

Pushing out a question for Emby gurus and  hopefully someone can help.

 

Background:

 

Started using MB back ~ 10 yr ago and still using today. I have always liked and supported MB but because I started my movie DB some time ago most of my movie files are full copies and placed in directories containing the original file structure of VOB (VTS_01) structure (My collection containing ~ 360 movies).  

 

Issue:

 

I am now running a new instance of MB on a win 10 machine and everything seemed to great except for some titles will only play the first VOB file in the directory and stop. I suspect I have damaged or corrupted filed when I moved over a large about of data to the new machine. I ran the MB conversion on the problem file and that fix it and made a MKV file that plays fine.

 

Here's my question, is there a tool that I can run in a batch mode that will scan all directories ( folders) containing the file structure for each movie and repair if found to be damaged?

 

My other option is to convert my entire DB to MKV.  Can I run MD conversion and covert the entire contents of a Library folder from the home screen using MB?  

 

Thx Bw

I wouldn't use ebmy's convert feature to fix this.  You clearly don't want lossy movies.  Just run those folders through MakeMKV.  It will spit out lossless MKVs as fast as a file copy and you'll have files that require less transcoding without losing any visual data.

Last i used MakeMkv it did not have the ability in the user interface to setup batches, but if i recall, some users in their community found other ways to do it. I could be wrong though.
