Since which itch was badly needed scratching, I thought
I could probably share the experience over.
The point is that with this patch I could sort of use
any2dvd to convert some AVI's to DVD. There are a lot
of problems into the code because any2DVD uses a lot of
external programs which can fail mysteriously. I don't
want to be misunderstood, any2dvd is an amazing
program, very nicely done and organized, but the sheer
complexity of what it tries to achieve is astonishing.
Any2dvd does a pretty descent job with my patch which
works around merely some bugs exposed due to bash
upgrades, changing the argument handling, and minor bug
If there is sufficient interest I may turn this patch
to a series of smaller for inclusion. If not I hope
that anybody hits the archives with the same questions
like me, may find in this patch the solution.
