Summary0001469: Support DVD cameras and cut/capture of chapters
DescriptionI used a Sony DVD Handycam to record video on my 7-month OE. It takes
mini-DVDs. This was great in most respects, as it meant that I could:
* make backup copies to full-sized DVDs at internet cafes without installing
* play the videos back in hostel DVD players;
* toggle the subtitles on and off in a DVD player to have the time and date of
recording on screen;
* etc.

The big difficulty is that, now that I am home, I have a stack of DVDs and it
is very hard to import them into a video editing program to edit them. I have
spent a lot of time ripping them perfectly to .iso images on my HTPC, so it
would be great if any import "wizard" could handle .iso files as well as DVD

I understand that each clip (from when you hit record until you hit stop) is a
separate chapter and each time that you take the disc out and put it back in is
a separate title (I also think that, if you have too many chapters, it will
start a new title even if you don't take the disc out). This makes working
with the .VOB files a very unsatisfactory way to edit the movies. Ideally such
an import would keep the video in its native MPEG format, so that there was no
quality loss through transcoding.

The best example of such a wizard that I can find is that of Roxio Easy Media
Creator, described here: [^]

I am more than happy to help with any work in this direction. [^]

This is an example DVD that I recorded today (not the most thrilling video,
sorry) that has about 8 clips/chapters. I ejected the disc after recording
most of them, so it should give an example of multiple titles as well.

I have created a test DVD that tests all the features of the Sony Handycam DVD
camcorder DCR-DVD605. I have put the whole iso online, but I have very limited
bandwidth, so I've made a Torrent: [^]

Hopefully, some people with a bit more bandwidth can seed it as well.
