I've been trying VideoReDo for a few days. I have no serious issues with it but I've used WTV Converter for several years for converting our WTV files for streaming from the server through our Sony SMP-N100 media streamer.
Although WTV files will stream, FF/FR doesn't work well; so I'm looking for a way to strip the ads then we don't have to FF. I've tried MCE Buddy but it is slow for decent quality conversions and the ad detection leaves a lot to be desired. However, Ad Detective in VRD isn't very good either but the manual detection is simple and fast. Then the removal is fast. Usually about 5 minutes for the typical 1 hour HDTV show. It is still WTV but the Sony streams the WTV file without a problem.
I don't convert with VRD because the conversion to H.264 MP4 is slow (about 1 1/2 hours for the 1 hour show). Also, the Sony doesn't stream H.264 MP4; so if I want to convert and shrink a show I have to convert to HD XVID(VRD doesn't do any AVI). WTV Converter converts and compresses a 1 hour HDTV show to H.264 MP4 in about 30 minutes.
Since I already own a copy of WTV Converter, I've been trying to use it's cutting tool before investing $100 in VRD.
