Mint liveUSB with Kino installed?

Postby bhakeman » Fri Dec 17, 2010 11:20 am

In order to convert home movies from our Sony Digital8 camcorder, I run it through firewire to my Mint9 laptop, using Kino to convert the .dv files to .mpg and burn a DVD. My wife is a band teacher and loaned out our camera to record their concerts this week. The orchestra teacher noticed they had the same camera and wanted to know how we were able to get the recordings onto DVD's.

My question is, without completely installing mint and kino, is there a way to load both onto a live usb so someone with a firewire port on their windows pc could get their home movies onto DVD?

Most USB creators should allow persistent storage, which allows software to be installed on live USB.

I have used usb-creator-gtk (availabe from synaptic) and installed rtorrent on it.

So if you have sufficiently big USB to hold Kino, you should be able to install Kino once you create live USB.
