Where VLC DVB-T Recordings Go?

VLC recordings

VLC program is very powerful and capable of recording DVB-T programs from your USB or other digital tv capture device. Hovewer its’ recording is not clearly specified and you have to search where the VLC recorded files go.

One inportant thing I noticed about VLC recordings that they are very large. Looks like those inbuilt codecs are not efficient enough to compress digital tv signal but for viewing VideoLan does a great job.

So if you still don’t care about the file size of VLC DVB-T recordings you can find recorded files at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data. Notice that Application data folder is hidden and you need to change folder view settings in order to be able to see its contents (Tools->Folder options->View->Show hidden files and folders)

 For DVB-T recordings I recommend AltDVB program which is freeware but needs some adjustments to work.
