I switched to a faster preset for transcoding these video files, so that I can quickly test various options for playback on various devices.
This results in a reduction of transcode time from 45 minutes per hour of footage to 12 minutes per hour of footage on average.
The resulting files are a little noisier or a little bigger than the same files would have been on a slower encode, but not by much, and it makes it way easier for me to run these tests.
@ajroach42 I encourage you to contact osi74.com - you're putting in great work to clean up a fine show and they're the channel that will broadcast them to millions of homes via Roku. I have friends there but don't work there - just a fan.
@onan when I'm done with my preservation efforts, I'll double check the rights situation in more detail, and reach out to several potential distribution channels.
