How it works

CM2C analize if the video must be converted to work with a Google Chromecast otherwise it convert the video in MP4 format with only one audio track and no subtitle track. By default, if there are several audio tracks, the english version is keeped.

If there is subtitle, you can burn subtitle into the video or only extract subtitle into SRT/ASS file. By default, if there are several subtitle tracks, the french version is extracted or burned because I’m french :).

Options:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -v, --version         show version
  -f FILE, --file=FILE  video file path
  --force               convert the video(s) even if it already has the right
