Tech Spec

How will the system work?

  • Burnstation to be a standalone service that will consume rss2 video feeds with pointers to vob encoded files and will return dvd iso files
  • The input files will have to be vob to avoid having the users wait a long time for the transcoding
  • We need some configuration to the transcode daemon in order to produce vob files on every video upload and to extend plumi in order to generate the above feed, and the appropriate UI to do it
