AFAICT the "norm" is to name the suffix after the container-format used, not what is stored inside the container. (Or would you use different suffixes for different types of files you put into a .tar-Archive?) So as .ts is the container it should be the appropriate suffix. Bis denn -- Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated, cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
