Q: What is dCut?
A: dCut is a program written for Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE). dCut was written to make it easier to compress and cut the DVR-MS files which are created by MCE.
Q: What makes dCut special?
A: dCut is unique in a few ways. First, dCut combines the tasks of cutting out only the segments you want from dvr-ms files, and compressing dvr-ms files into a smaller format (Windows Media 9.) Second, dCut allows you to do all of this from your couch, utilizing the a 10′ UI which integrated directly into MCE. dCut works via a hosted HTML App, and uses the MCE remote control.
Q: How does it work?
A: When you load dCut, it provides you with a list of available dvr-ms files or wmv files. Using your MCE remote control, you choose from this list the file you want to work with. After you select the file, dCut will play it for you and allow you to denote the start and stops of segments you want to keep. After you have choosen all the segments you want, you then tell dCut to compress the file.
