Subject: [mythtv-users] User job to encode recordings and storage/deletion of?
I'v figured out how to encode video for playback on my blackberry now. So I can take an ambiguously named recording from /var/lib/mythtv and
encode it to a smaller file, copy it to my Blackberry media card and watch it fine.
Now I assume I can just set a user job to re-encode each program and dump them to a folder somewhere where I can get to them
from my blackberry. What stops this disk then filling up? I assume it's then up to me to delete files from it, or have some kind
of cron job delete files older then X days?
Take a look at pdatranscode.pl-it has automatic file trimming which you can configure for # of episodes or total folder size-should be everything you need.
