Excellent! I haven't tried it with DVB, so that's great that it works.
Just so you know, you can define an ffmpeg_extra_options variable in a
config file for just that type of purpose. Probably better than having
to make those kinds of edits in the script if you want to upgrade
Let me know how the video quality and playback go. I'm currently
wrestling with some details I hadn't noticed before. h264
full-resolution videos play on the iPod - but they stutter a lot and
it's just about unwatchable when using TV-Out. They look fine on the
screen and on the PC. Weird.
