After several hours of trial and error I have hacked together a perl script
that will take a 250 encoded file, remove comercials and do a 2 pass xvid
encode and maintain audio sync (This was tha had part as everything else I
tried when cutting comercials messed up the audio).
You will need: Transcode, xvid and perl DBD:mysql
Edit the top of the script to match you system and set deaults for the
NOTE: when you mark your video cutlist, besure the video starts and ends
with a cut. I just goto the first frams and "delete from this point
backward" and move to the last frams and "Delete from this fram forward"
This way the script can generat a proper cut list (its a hack I know but
The just call the script with the nuv file name and it will do the rest.
Feel free to send me improvements
