Description

Fast cutting of VDR recordings without copy. Parallel cuttings are possible.

Hardware requirements

Software requirements

  • at (job manager)

Installation

cd $SOURCEDIR
chmod 777 cut_in_place.cc
sh cut_in_place.cc
mv cut_in_place.cc /usr/local/bin/cutinplace.sh

Configuration

Cut in place is started best through the reccmds.conf

Cut in place : /usr/local/bin/[[cutinplace.sh]]

Problems

Tips

  • As cutinplace creates no copy like VDR, the shutdown script should therefor be adapted
  • Exiting before the cutting is finished destroys the recording
  • Fast cutting times can be achieved when the recording file size in VDR is set to 100MB
