81.5 Converting the Transport Stream
Use dvbcut for a graphical tool to select regions (start and top segments) that can then be exported to standard mpeg format.
To join some streams together:
$ mpgtx -j c1.mpg c2.mpg c3.mpg -o cx.mpg
Convert to MPEG: This simply puts a wrapper around the stream, with no additional encoding.
$ mencoder -of mpeg -ovc copy -oac copy -o news.mpg news.ts
Convert to AVI:
$ mencoder -ovc lavc -oac copy -o test.avi test.ts
To join two videos together:
$ mpgjoin s01.mpg s02.mpg -o all.mpg
To cut the beginning and end out of a video:
$ mpgjoin all.mpg [2:22-54:46] -o just.mpg
