The migration has begun

I have finally started migrate my VHS tapes to hard drive. Last summer, I reconnected my Audio/Video-equipment so it became possible to record videos from the VHS-player on my KISS EPG. Now when I had a few days of between X-mas and New Year it was time to start the migration. I can say this will take some time. My flow is:

  1. Play a VHS-tape on the VCR and record it on the KISS.
  2. Transfer the video file from the KISS-player to the Ubuntu file-server.
  3. Cut the video with Avidemux to remove garbage and some times split in episodes etc.
  4. Put the file in the right place in the directory structure.
Well, it will take some time to migrate all VHS-tapes. Fortunately, it does not require any manual work most of the time.
