Yes they have...
So now onto how to do this in command line: It turns
out ProjectX has a CLI (command line interface). It's
a little tricky to figure out, but this now works
great for me:
java -jar <compiled_projectX_file> -c
<projectX_ini_file> -n <output_stream_basename> -o
The "X.ini" file that it needs was, for me, in the
original src directory where I compiled ProjectX. A
couple of notes: first, it apparently requires you to
run it as GUI at least the first time so that you can
click on "accept" for the license agreement. (It's
GPLed but author expressly forbids commercial use???
WTF?) Also, when I ssh'ed into my box without "-X",
projectX failed to start, apparently because it needs
to feel like it's accessing an X server even when it
isn't going to use one. (Go figure.) So if you don't
have an X display defined it may not work from the
I haven't tried the command-line yet, but I did a Project X demux, a
remux (mplex), dvd prep (dvdauthor) and burn to DVD and it worked great!
