Featured Website:

HandBrake (handbrake.fr) is a GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder.

HandBrake is not a ripper. It converts video, it does not rip it byte by byte. It does not crack the latest DVD copy protection schemes hatched by the studios.

It converts video from nearly any format to a handful of modern ones—that’s it.

HandBrake is not everything for everyone for every need. When you desire a ChickenSandwich, search out a local purveyor of prepared foodstuffs. When you desire an über-tool for all your video encoding needs, learn how to use the command line and seek out projects like mencoder.

The Tip:

Install zramswap-enabler for increased performance in Linux. It’s virtual swap space compressed in RAM and is integrated in the Linux kernel.

MythTV walkthrough – Software/Backend

And here is the setups specifically for configuring the MythTV backend.

The widescreen videos don’t really line up right now with our WordPress theme but I think giving good quality is worth it. Click on the videos to be redirected to my youtube channel and you can watch the HD versions there.
