[MPlayer-users] Question about .ifo and .vro files on a Hitachi dvd-ram camcorder

Someone had suggested ULead, which is supposed to read the vro info, but
I didn't want to spend the money on it.

What I've ended up doing to make an svcd out of each side of the dvd-ram
is after copying the vro file to my machine, I run the following:

mencvcd sideA -a 2 -noburn -cdsize 800 -svcdout -vnorm n -vfr 4 vr_movie.vro

Have you found a way to pull the data off the camera under linux?  I've been stuck doing it in a 
vmware Windows session, and haven't tried finding a way under linux in a while.

   Our Cabbage Who Art in D.C.

   In biology -- and the economy -- simple rules produce complex behaviors.
   That's "simple" rules.

   The Lord's Prayer is 66 words, the Gettysburg Address is 286 words,
   there are 1,322 words in the Declaration of Independence, but government
   regulations on the sale of cabbage total 26,911 words.

   That's "cabbage." Cole slaw, we presume, is more complicated.
