GUI for PixelBeat's DVD-VR splitter application
« on: October 15, 2012, 01:33 AM »
My son picked up an inexpensive Mini-DVD recording video camera, and liked the DVD-VR format for it's flexibility, but didn't like that it couldn't be used directly in a video editor.  After some searching, I came across this:
DVD-VR ripper for Linux
dvd-vr is a utility to identify and optionally copy recordings from a DVD-VR format disc, which can be created by devices like DVD recorders and camcorders

Basically, it can rip the VR-format file into individual .vob files, which can then be imported into most video editing programs not written by Microsoft  :mad:, but it needs to be compiled in Cygwin to run on Windows, and then it's a command-line program.
My son being a fan of the Windows 7 that came on his laptop, I dusted off my XP partition, brushed up on my Autohotkey skills and came up with dvdvrGUI.

Instructions I wrote for installing Cygwin, compiling and running dvd-vr and dvdvrGUI can be found here:

Still working on a version for Linux, possibly written with Yad  :Thmbsup:
