    Record flash video stream into Multiple files


    Hi all,

    I am trying to record a flash video stream and would like to store it in multiple files with 10 min limit for each file. What are the options I have in Ubuntu or Open SUSE?

    I have heard about mencoder, But couldn't find how to split the stream into intervals of 10mins.


    Appreciate your help.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You can do this with ffmpeg with the -itsoffset and -t options. The -itsoffset option tells it where in the stream to start, and the -t option tells it how long to grab the stream. You can also convert it to other audio and video formats (such as ac3 audio and mpeg video) at the same time if you want. It's the most powerful transcoder available for Linux (or just about any other system). I think mencoder uses ffmpeg under the covers.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
