Light GUI for Windows
To install, execute Customize.exe in Hplex\GUI
See install file in GUI folder for details.
Light GUI offers the following installation options for right-click
menus ('context handlers') :
DVD-Hybrid -- Custom
DVD-Video audio disc
The "Make folder" options create folders with subfolders g1, g2, ...,
up to g9.
The "Copy To " options copy audio files selected by right-clicking to
the appropriate folders.
The "Burn" options launch Hplex with the corresponding parameters.
Installing Light GUI
The installation procedure prompts each type of intall option:
Reply Y ("yes") to install and N otherwise.
Each "yes" reply installs the following three right-click
Burn ....(type of disc)...
Make...(type of disc folder)...
Copy To...(type of disc)...
Then the installation procedure goes on to ask for a customized
DVD-Hybrid launch option.
Customizing a right-click option
An example is given on how to enter command line options: see Hplex
help or readmes on how to specify parameters.
A typical command line will include the type of DVD-Hybrid switch (-e,
-i, -m, -a/-v) and possibly input parameters (bit rate /
sample rate options):
-ba 24 -sa 48 -m %1
means "right-clicked folder %1" will be of type -m with audio bit rate
24 and sample rate 48 kHz.
A message then indicates that the right-click menu
"Burn DVD-Hybrid -- Custom"
is generated for the entered command line, as in the screenshot below:
