VdrAssistant For Mac Publisher's description
from Reinhard Uebel
VdrAssistant is a java app and contains a richclient-framework.
The architecture was designed for distributed environments, with the requirement, that it should work the same, having all processes run on the same workstation or having each process run on a different workstation.
These where the assumtions made for developing of architecture:
* the VDR runs on a small (silent) machine, with small CPU-power
* valuable recordings are put on a storage system not being the VDR, especially if the VDR runs event triggered
* if that storage system is a NAS, the services of VdrAssistant should work on a different workstation with enuf CPU-power to perform a conversion of VDR-recordings into i.e. DVD format
* a desktop application should manage all working parts
The GUI-Part should run on any system, that supports a java GUI (tested only Linux and Windows), the services are designed to run on Linux-systems only (no plans to port them to other osses).
What's New in This Release:В· new export format for themes/skins now an archive from theme-,
В· skin-data, used images and fontfiles is created.
В· speed up scan of recordings
В· added support for using dvd disk image as input recording, which means,
В· i.e. a wanted interview from a bonus-dvd may be extracted and form
В· part of a new dvd compilation. That means, dvd images are recognized
В· at recording scan, projectX can be startet for dvd-images and used to
В· create cutmarks, which then can be imported to VdrAssistant. Of cause,
В· part of an dvd image may also be used to recode to mkv.
В· changed database handling of installers, which means, no more update
В· scripts for handling schema updates. The java installer is now able to
В· track changes from current db installation to required schema and
В· prints out the statements needed to bring the database schema up to
В· date. Those schema modifications can be executed by the native database
В· client the installer makes no assumptions about this stage.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
