Snap4Snap9i’m in the process of demuxing a lot of videos that i’ve downloaded, from various formats — dvd, flv, ts, etc — with audio of various quality.  i don’t always (well, ok, i seldom) watch one of these videos, just listen away.  so the video part is generally superfluous.  and then… most of the videos were on a spare hdd which went bad and (natch!) i didn’t have backed up.  sigh!  so ‘the demux project’ for those videos i hadn’t moved to that dead drive.  icing on the cake?  most of those videos, i’ve watched between zero and one time, so catching up on some great stuff!

and speaking of great stuff, this concert punches sooo many buttons for me.  fantastic music, johnny griffin (or am i repeating myself?), vocals…  so, time to take a longer break from my ‘lossless’ rule and share it here.

as i work through these videos (there’s not too many of them after the hdd crash, unfortunately), i’ll post the demux’s up here [20-aug: well, probably not but on occasion].  unless noted, the demux is in the same format as the original audio.

btw, i downloaded the video originally when ‘rillenheini’ shared it just over a year ago.

***update 20-august:  i did a new conversion from .vob files to .ac3, using ffmpeg, and have now tracked it.  the info file details below have also been updated.  i’d not yet used ffmpeg on .vob files, and just happened to pick this concert to try it.  so, having done the work… here it is.  ***
