[mythtv] transcoding with cutlist

Well, I have transcoded 3 shows now. Only the last one had commercials
in it (and just one block). Looking at the original in MythTV and the
resulting avi (this is a cartoon, so the amount of lipsynch you can
count on is, well, questionable) both looked about the same.

I would say this is *very* usable. At least to me :)

It looks (and sounds) exactly like it should, as far as I can tell.

Havent tried it, but it's good to be warned in advance :)

I may look into making a (simple) script for this. Maybe Michael will be
interested as well and make mythmkmovie II?
Oh: Is it also possible to transcode to a different resolution if you so
desire using another profile than Transcode? It's not likely to happen
for me (except maybe for some music videos), but it'd be good to know.
