I've converted my files to H264 and at the same time, removed the ads. How do I feed them back to TIVO?I'd suggest targetting h.264 (preferably in an MP4 container) instead of Xvid. That way, you can feed the files back to the TiVo without further reencoding in the future. I think h.264 is generally considered superior, too.
What you can do is either run pyTivo, Galleon, or TiVo Desktop on your computer, and that will allow you to download (not stream) nearly any video to your TiVo.I've converted my files to H264 and at the same time, removed the ads. How do I feed them back to TIVO?
Thanks in advance.
For 1 & 2, this wiki should answer those questions: TiVo Video Compatibility.A few more questions...
1) With H.264 video, what audio codec(s) does the TiVo require if I want to be able to play the transcoded files on the TiVo?
2) And what container format(s) does the TiVo require?
3) Any good pointers to guides on using libx264 via ffmpeg? It appears to have eighty gazillion options...
