If i'm right, then this was something that mjpegtools createt and is now used by all Video Tools under Linux(ffmpeg, mplayer, transcode, ...)
Some c code can be found at http://parallel.vub.ac.be/~johan/MpegStills/ .

avs2yuv also creates it (it creates planar I420)

http://students.washington.edu/loren...synth/avs2yuv/

akupenguin wrote it. So i'm sure he can help if necessary

This is newer c code:

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.p...utils/#dirlist

Apperently more colorformats are supported, but simply I420 would be sufficient for now.

1) Good news: if you use avs2yuv with -raw and then RawSource(filename, width, height, "YV12") it works already. When using "I420" U/V are permuted - I'm sorry I confused I420 and YV12.

2) Using the native format will be a little more work, as the frame positions are theoretically not equally spaced (the FRAME header can be different). But if I assume that there is no data in the frame header it makes it much easier. This will be always the case if the stream is not "interlaced mixed" - which AviSynth can't handle AND if there are no "metadata" of variable length.

I know. Fred asked me about it and he's using TyTool (which outputs YUV4MPEG). So, that's why i asked you. I asked Fred to send a sample stream to me.

Are you sure? It's not the case that avs2yuv accidentely outputs YV12? I'm at work, can't check it now.

I asked Fred to check/ask what kind of YUV4MPEG stuff TyTool outputs. I will let you know if he responds.

btw, what kind of data is "metadata" of variable length?

I attach the specs for the header, there is not mentioned, what exactly the metadata should be used for. Maybe something like DG's hints?

TyTool's author is now active here as "jdiner". There's some chatting between him and nic over in the MPEG2 encoders area. He's a better source than me for the samples you want. I can grab them as TyTool processes but it's quite awkward.

I would be happy to provide some source metrics. I also sent out a PM with the details of what TyTool is doing with it.

I am new to this forum and uncertain what the rules are here for posting, size-wise etc... Until I can get caught up on such then please feel free to make requests and I will fill them as fast as I can.

EDIT: I suppose I should add that I can provide the C++ source I use to make the files, although it is small enough not to be of that much use, and if I can find it the C++ source I wrote to load the files as well. (haven't seen it in a while but a grep search should turn it up if anyone wants to see it.)

So, it works for you?

Btw, could you upload a YUV4MPEG sample?

I have not tested it. Hopefully FredThompson has been able to do so.

Here is a sample y4m file, YUV4MPEG, as requested. It has been packed up as a zip file.

Humm. I am used to attachments showing up immediately in other forums. I assume it didn't here because there is some kind of moderator oversight.

Anyway it has been posted, hopefully it will appear here soon.

There were two bugs in the rawsource-DLL. Please try the new version.

U and V swapped?

Hi thanks WarpEnt for still improving rawsource I think that is a very useful filter indeed!

I've just tried the latest version (20050414) and it looks like when importing raw YV12 the U and V channels are swapped. (swapUV() function fixes the colour problem)
I tried again the same clip with the 2004.05. version and colours are fine.

Could there be some code from the YV12 mode changed by adding the support for YUV4MPEG?

Cheers

@jdiner,

If your sample consists out of one frame (?), then it loads fine

No. It had several frames in it. 4 I think.

I will have to download what was uploaded and make sure. I will post my results.

EDIT: My appologies. I remember now having to cut it down to get it small enough to post here. There are 2 frames in there.

HEADER FRAME (data) FRAME (data) [EOF]

I can make one of larger sized file with 10 or more frames in it if someone can host it. I will see if I can get my old BSD box un-mothballed. Until that happens anyone want to host a 4 or 5 meg ZIP file?

Cut it into chunks (WinRAR, HJ-Split, etc.) and email it to me. I'll host it and any other samples you want posted.

Re: U and V swapped?

@billou2k: in the latest version U/V is intentionally swapped since I think it was wrong before. You can use "I420" or "YV12" as format strings, one of them will do it (no need to SwapUV, which of course will work too).

Here's a 29-frame YUV4MPEG sample from jdiner
