Okay, I use an antenna for my TV viewing and record shows using TVHeadend. I end up with files that are about 3.5Gb for 30 minutes and they live on a NAS with different folders for each show. For instance, \\PVR\show1, \\PVR\show2, etc.
Now, to save space, I would like to automatically encode the video files to take up less room. Once encoded, I have no need for the original file.
The NAS does not have the horsepower to do it's own encoding, so I want to use a separate Windows computer that is always on. I have mapped the PVR folder on the NAS as a drive on this Windows computer.
So, the workflow (so far) is very simple. First, I monitor the folders contained in Y: (which is a mapped drive to the NAS).
Then it gets encoded
Then it should get delivered, but here is probably where the problem happens In the end, FFAStrans monitor says this: In the deliveries node I have tried different %s_variables, but can't figure out the right one.
Basically, I want to
- have FFAStrans monitor a remote folder for an unprocessed file that is not growing (ie: being recorded)
- encode that file using a local computer
- overwrite the original file in its original remote location getting rid of any temporary files on the encoding computer
