I would love to see a good solution to this.  I have seen Chris' posts
looking for the people who worked on mythtranscode to add the options
for exporting on this list and on the dev list but I haven't heard
anything from anyone who is capable of doing the work.  So it sounds
like we (who can't do the work ourselves) need to find a way to
encourage those who can.  I propose a micropayment bounty.  I would
happyly put in $5-10 and I have personally talked to a few others who
would contribute similarly.  So I figure if we put up a $50-100 combined
bounty to who ever makes the changes to allow mythtranscode so that it
will work with standard tools.  Or even better we can build export in to
myth itself.  So, what does everyone think?  Am I crazy?  Am I the only
one who really wants to export efficiently to DVD/VCD enough to put a
little mony behind it?  Just an idea.
