Theres also a web based cutlist editor


I've done some maintenance and added additional features on it as its
getting rather old now under my fork, it works under 0.28 and ubuntu 16.04


I plan to add some other features but haven't had time, like make it more
touch friendly, options to delete recordings and display recordings flagged
as corrupt as well as launch user jobs additionally to the default
transcode option.
