I have an XP machine with a 40GB drive that's connected to a TV.
I have a Linux box that has an out-facing SSH connection.
I record a few sets of shows.
- Things the family would like
- Things that I'd like to share with friends
- Things I want for myself
dvr-msformat means a file could be up to 1.5GB. I would like to down-convert the shows for my friend and place them in a directory where my friend can get them.
Problem is, the Linux machine cannot see the Vista machine. Well, yeah via Gnome but not via
fusesmb, so I can't really make a crontab. So, if I really want to do this, I have to learn how to do scheduled tasks on Vista Home Edition.
ffmpegseems to be hit-and-miss with opening the videos. Don't know what to do about that.
