As I bought a few years ago a DV digital video camera , due to my twins birth, it\\\'s pleasant to see them on the TV. But now I bought a home DVD/Divx player, and it would be more pleasant also to have all the movies from my video camera under a CD. Why ?
- For robustness (CD is stronger than tapes)
- For easy access to movie sequences (next/prev is easier than forward/rewind ...)
- for storage.
What I would like to do is to have also some information displayed while looking the movies (such as title of the movie, date and hour). So subtitles for all my movies would be great. But writing subtitles for all the sequences of the movie is a huge job....
For all these reasons, I started to work on conversion scripts in order to facilitate the job of subtitles writing, conversion, burning movies to CD. So I decided to work on this project, that I think may help some of us.
The project is hosted at : https://sourceforge.net/projects/dvzeec/
Feedback , comments are welcome !
I see 5 parts for the tools :
1) Grab the DV movies on files
2) Generate subtitles automatically (title + date and hour)
3) Conversion process (for the moment only the xvid/mp3 format are supported)
4) Verification of the ouputs (before burning it could be useful)
5) Cd burning (and go on the DVD/Divx player ! )
The tools used by this project are (for each previous points) :
1) dvgrab : www.kinodv.org
2) Written/developed by me (perl language)
4) Written/developed by me (Basic language)
5) Linux commands (mkisoft)
