Thanks for the response, it is for a standalone projector for use on a
trip away from home, metadata is not important and the projector will
accept (via USB) a selection of formats including MKV, AVI, MP4/H264,
but wont play the raw .ts file, that was the 1st thing I offerred.
Have gone via VLC and reformatted to .MKV, but it's kindof long winded
and I just feel this could be done more elegantly.
