I am burning dvds using a pvr-350, ivtv, mencoder, dvdauthor and growisofs. After much trial and
tribulation, I have managed to get a dvd that is actually usable on my two standalone dvd players.
The problem that I have now is that when Fast Forwarding through the video, rather than smoothly
skipping through the video, I get slow motion, then jump, slow motion, then jump. I can't really
tell, but I don't think it is proceeding through the file at the correct rate either ( 2x,4x,8x,
I copy from /dev/video0. non default ivtv settings are:
ivtvctl -u 0x3000
ivtvctl -p 6
ivtvctl -f width=720,height=480
I am using the following for mencoder:
# added deinterlace filter
# changed volume from -10 to 10
# removed volume entirely, added options from mencoder docs
# changed vqmin=1 to vqmin=2
mencoder -fps 30000/1001 -of mpeg -oac copy -ovc lavc \
-mpegopts format=dvd:vaspect=4/3 \
-vf lavcdeint,harddup -noskip -o $outputfile $inputfile
( if anyone sees anything else stupid that I am doing, feel free to let me know that as well - I
am really new at this. )
cat > dvdauthor.xml << EOF
<vob file="$inputfile" />
dvdauthor -o $inputfile.dvd.d -x dvdauthor.xml
growisofs -Z /dev/cdwriter -dvd-compat -dvd-video $inputdir
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance..
