2 suggestions for me-tv

Asked by Robin Kluth on 2009-05-16

Hey Me-TV Team,

I have two suggestions for next me-tv versions:

    1. Recorded shows are often too long for an 4.7 DVD - Maybe an split function for me-tv? Like 'Split .mpeg after X.XXGB'? I hope this feature will be implemented.

    2. An Web-based record sheduler like mythTV's mythweb? Not as big as mythtv's only a simple web-applications to set recordings and manage in a simple way recordings.

I hope they're good ideas :-D

For MPEG2 TS you can use `split` i.e. the file can be sliced at any point without re-encoding because it's a continuous stream. Another GUI program that I like is "avidemux".

FAQ #351: “New Features for Me TV”.

Actually, I should be clearer and say that it should be split on a 188 byte boundary. That's the packet size of MPEG 2 TS.
