has anyone successfully used a Mac and the apps in Apple's iLife
suite to (edit and) burn VDR recordings? I'm happy playing them
back using VLC, but since the Apple apps only understand the
formats supported by Quicktime (and mpeg2 not being one of them),
they don't work directly.
I'm looking at a couple of options, and before trying further I
thought I'll ask if someone's had success already.
1. Buy Apple's MPEG2 decoder. Wouldn't want to invest $20 before
knowing it will definitely work.
2. Use VLC to transcode. Takes forever and with my short trial, the
output didn't quite work with iMovie.
3. Find a 3rd party application to cut and burn the mpeg2 files
Me is using:
vdrsync-0.1.2.2.pl (modified a little bit to fit to my used tools,
dvdauthor (DVDAuthor::dvdauthor, version 0.6.11)
mkisofs (mkisofs 2.01)
mplex (mjpegtools mplex-2 version 1.8.0 (2.2.4))
