I am trying to import about 150 (mpg) recordings made by GBPVR into NPVR
The GBPVR recordings are in a separate directory, which is not the directory into which they were originally recorded, and not the NPVR recordings directory.
I tried the following:
Edit the addresses in the GPVR recordings dump file (which currently points to the wrong directory) to point to the directory where the recording now are
Run import in NPVR
Result 'no recordings imported'
Put some of the recordings in the NPVR directory, and re-edited the the XML file
Put the new XML file in the NPVR data directory
Looked at the log files - nothing of interest
Do the recordings to be imported have to be in the NPVR recordings directory?
Is the format of the required XML file the same in NPVR as it was in GBPVR?
Could the editor I used for the XML file (open office) be causing the problem?? It did seem to add quite a few statements about the author
Of course I have read the posts about importing on installation, but I don't really want to disturb a working installation of NPVR by playing around with the recordings directory
