Open Source does it again! M is a teacher and wanted some material from the excellent Public Service Mediathek of the ARD here in Germany for her Politics class. Unfortunately everything needs to be on DVD as the school that she works at is still in the 90s technologically speaking.
All my machines run Linux Mint Debian Edition and I prepared myself for a bit of a struggle remastering the videos to DVD.
Nix Da! It was so fantastically easy.
First the downloads with "Mediathekenview"
a brilliant java based client for all public service offerings in Germany.
Then DeVeDe for the remastering:
and Brasero to burn:
45 Minutes and done!
