DVR-MS codec and Linux


Hi.

I'm wondering if there's an DVR-MS codec available for Linux?

I'd like to be able to watch the TV programs recorded on XP Media Center Edition (MCE), which uses the format called DVR-MS. It is apparently different than WMV. I have the Win32 codecs packaged installed on my FC4 box and am able to watch the standard WMV files with no problem. Not DVR-MS, though.

Any help would be appreciated.

Dai

Digital Video Recorder
DVR is a tool to record movies on a computer equipped with a
Video4Linux-compatible video capture card. It can record and compress data at
up to 25 fps in real time, using recent codecs like DivX, Indeo 5, MPEG4, and
others.

Features include:
- support for writing data in segmented files (to avoid 2GB file size
limitations)
- support for recording audio in MP3 or PCM, with configurable frequency,
mono/stereo, etc.
- on-the-fly capture and compression (requires a fast processor)
- horizontal margin removal during capture (saves disk space and processor
resources when recording movies that have black top/bottom margins, such
as 16/9)
- detailed monitoring during recording (free space left, frames lost, CPU
usage, etc.)
- configurable record start time and duration
- a large number of configurable parameters (size, image depth, codec
attributes, TV parameters, etc.)
- session management (saving parameters on exit and reloading them on launch)
- simultaneous preview and capture
- fullscreen preview
- support for multi-processor machines
- session management
- a graphical user interface

Looks good. I'll look at it on the weekend.

Thanks!

VLC to play DVR-MS

Hi!

You can use VLC player to play DVR-MS from Windows MCE2005.

Right-click on the DVR-MS file and choose "Open with another program" and select VLC-player.

I had to adjust the audio to play -0.3 seconds to get the audio/video sync correct (press CTRL+E to get to the adjustment settings, choose the "Syncronization"-tab, set the "Advance of audio over video" to "-0.3 seconds".

But after this it's no problem playing the *.DVR-MS files.
