Actually, asking about transcoding is why I came back to the PC to
write another question. I have no disk space issues so I'm happy to
transcode everything if it can be an automatic setting. I've never
used transcoding so I don't know how to set it up for the iPod format.
Can Myth transcode every recording to the iPod format so it's all
ready to go when she shows up?
I think your URL above makes sense if I have something installed
that uses Apache, right? Is that mythweb which I jsut installed but
haven't tried to configure yet.
