So yesterday, a friend tells me he has a bunch of TV episodes in MP4, but they are stuttering when he plays them in VLC. A quick check, and they aren't indexed, so a quick run through Avidemux to copy the video and audio streams to a new file will fix that.
So ... Rather than drag and drop, build index, save, wait, ENTER, unload, rinse-and-repeat I knock up a quick app to do them for me: and it works: opens AviDemux, loads the file, indexes it, saves it, closes Avidemux. It even shows progress on a DataGridView by removing each file as it's processed. And that's the bad bit - since this was a quick and dirty one-off app, I ... well ... I ... used Application.DoEvents. Sorry.

And it nagged at me all night. "Shouldn't have done that, you know. You know better than that, Griff. Jerk move, Griff".

And it was right. So I wasted half an hour this morning to convert it to a BackgroundWorker, with proper progress reporting via the DGV and a read-only textbox, complete with a "Stop!" button, and folder(s) persistence via the settings file.

For an app I'll never use again ... I hate it when that happens ...
Does anyone else get this, or is it just me?

Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
