Back in November, the legendary Don Melton sat down with me to record Vector 22: transcoding video, all about getting the best-possible results for personal use. Don was kind enough to formalize some scripts to help move media from Blu-Ray/DVD to MP4 format, namely, "transcode video file" and "detect crop". Well, Don's now updated both to version 2.0:
Both 2.0 video transcoding scripts now accept a complete disc image directory as input, and neither depends on mediainfo anymore. Startup time for transcode-video.sh is now ~10x faster. (Oh, if I could only speed up the actual transcoding by that factor. :) A few more bugs are now fixed, e.g. failure to transcode MPEG video with closed captions. Thanks for letting me spam all of you.
If you have any questions on them, please refer back to the original podcast and show notes. (If you need extra help, we'll be posting some how-tos in the near future.)
