What is the best way to edit out all the commercials from recorded Hi-Def?


I recorded Atlantis in 5.1 on Sunday and the picture quality is stunning (except when the signal looks like it has interference) and would like to delete the commercials.

avisynth is my favorite editing tool. But that's probably more than you need. A good mpeg2 editor is bbmpeg. Tmpegenc would also work I suppose. either would require some conversion. Any editing tool would require you to at least remux the source transport stream to get it into a more recognizable format. I don't know of anything that natively supports .tp transport stream files. For remuxing, use Xmuxer. For info and tools for editing video, check www.vcdhelp.com

Version 0.10 is broken for converting to MPEG. For that you need version 0.09.

I use HDTV2MPEG 1.10 to edit out the commercials and save the HDTV program as transport files.

Thanks for all the feedback. I downloaded HDTV2MPEG 1.10 and will give it a try.


After editing can it still be played back using the MyHD card?

Yes. I used it to edit commercials out of the Grammy Awards and the Oscars before I burned them to DVD+R, and they play back just fine.

Any way to remove subchannels (ie standard def program) that's also embedded along with the HD subchannel in a transport file?

Short answer is No. You could extract the MPEG stream for the subchannel and then re-Encode the TS, but that is EXPENSIVE! If all you want is TS then leave it alone.


Edit. Almost forgot, there is a utility ErasePIDS (EPIDS) that doesn't really delete the PIDS, just marks them as bad. You could use it if only want to watch a sub-channel. It will not change the size of the file though.
