Title: ENCODING DEVICE AND METHOD, RECORDED MEDIUM, AND PROGRAM
Abstract:
When a time controlled flag is set to 1 as attribute information on an AV stream so as to encode and record the AV stream, the elapsed time of the AV stream is in proportion to the number of bytes of data of the AV stream within a predetermined error range. If the time controlled flag of an AV stream file is set to1, and if a portion, corresponding to a time, of the stream is partly deleted, a free area corresponding to the deletion time, where data can be recorded at a bit rate indicated by a TS average rate of the stream is created on a disk.
