It's probably common use but I didn't find good info how to do that:
I record movie. It needs to be cutted (advertisment etc) and than
compressed from mpeg2 to divx (because this format is smaller and
playable on almost everything). Then movie is moved to library which
scans IMDB or similair services to download meta information.
The goal is how to do that as most automatically as possible.
For now it's rather long way: I convert .ts stream into mpeg2 (I forgot
the name but it's software which allows cut file altogether, hovewer
it's not user friendly becauses of small preview window), then convert
it with some software (VirtualDub, Handbrake or ffmpeg), then rename and
load into XBMC library.
I know it's rather lously connected with VDR, hovewer I have idea of
using VDR as main tool in this toolchain. First it knows from EPG
metadata the name of movie, so it can find it in IMDB (in fact both web
interfaces can do that now). Next it allows to cut recordings (hovewer I
prefer doing it with keyboard) and sometimes automate ads removing. The
last piece is converting which also is available via some external scripts.
The problem is I would prefer doing it via web interface, because
keyboard & mouse is more productive than remote. I hoverwer didn't find
possibility to start converting via web interface.
What do you think about it?
