But what an awesome feature that would be! I originally asked about
pre/post roll because the break between certain shows was off, so I
would get the start of one on the end of another, and the file for the
latter would be lacking the start. I'm sure the networks intended this,
but thought pre or post roll might be aggravating it. That feature would
abolish the problem.
Would it be feasible for the encoded stream to be T'd into two files so
they would both be sure to get the start and end of their own show?
