Convert only a part of a video

Asked by David Prieto on 2009-04-27


I would like to be able to use Arista to convert only a part of a video (e.g. a scene). Is that feature intended to be added in the future?

I've been meaning to add this to the todo (blueprints) for a while, but I'm not sure how to get a list of DVD titles or chapters just yet. For now you can use the terminal client like so:

arista-transcode dvd:///dev/cdrom@1 output.mp4

Where /dev/cdrom is replaced with your DVD device and 1 is replaced with the title you wish to encode.

I've opened a blueprint for this feature:

I am not sure yet when or how this will be implemented.

Can you help with this problem?
