Then I won't see the timecode in ardour while editing. Basically I want 
to extract the timecode and sample offset from the timecode track (the 
timecode may start anywhere within a frame, so the correct starting 
point would be the first edge after the sync word). This only needs to 
be done once since audio and video are in sync. 

I cannot do this manually, since I don't know the timecode when the 
recording started.

If it's no hassle, I'd be glad if you'd send it over since there's no 
need to reinvent the wheel. But it's not that hard to look for a sync 
word and decode the first LTC.

Machines can do the work, so people have time to think.
