New VC-1 ES to AVI Multiplexer Version 1.0.1 released (15-Sep-2007)

The VC12AVI Multiplexer converts VC-1 elementary streams to AVI streams by multiplexing. The resulting streams are accepted by VirtualDub and others for editing, encoding and further processing.

The main features are:

- Multiplex VC-1 elementary streams to AVI
- Reconstructs headers and meta data
- Writes OpenDML 1.02 compliant AVI files

Enjoy!



Version 1.0.1 Changes:
- Segmented AVI output for files larger than 4GB
- Key frame detection for field-interlaced streams

Download Version 1 here
MD5: d9b463a939c5c29cd04d85c29ff33fcb

crypto , it's a great tool.

Do you know if the Fourcc "WVC1" in the avi container is standardized?

I have tested it and the avi file is open with ffdshow.

I will test it later with my Set Top Box (Sigma chip SMP8635).

Thanks

Nice, because it don't work on EM8621 (same for EM862x).
What box do you have ?
A ISP box like FreeBox (V5), NeufBox or a multimedia like Tvix M4100/M5100 (alone in France) ?

Nice, it's NeufBox (old) video player.
You use UPnP server or in HDD with USB or network share to play it.
I know there is a new firmware update, this firmware can play directly *.vc1 file ?

Yes, WindowsMediaConnect2.0 shares my folders' PC and yes the old (4.7.21) firmware can play directly *.vc1 files. With the new one (4.7.29-3) I don't test it.
I'll try it this evening.

Nice, Netgem's developpers change the firmware to support VC1 (so after 5 request in January and one vc1 example ).
I like french developpers: they say yes, they developp it and push on new firmware (not like other team/developper).
thxs Mr Spinelli

I know it possible to play video file with 2 audio track (2.0 or 5.1) and subtitles (it was in first developpment for VoD on hotel
before to implement vc1).

I used this on a 7GB VC1 ES and it produced a 4GB AVI. It appears to suffer from the old 4GB file size limit. Yes, my partition is NTFS.

Hi neuron2,

I checked the > 2GB barrier, which was ok. I will try it on a 7GB stream. I think there is an overflow on some variable, which causes the 4GB limit. (maybe the frame counter?)

Thank you. The process proceeded normally and the status indication reached 100%. It's just that the final AVI was only 4GB.

The fourcc WVC1 is standarized for the advanced profile. Let's see, if the SMP8635 can read it. I tried it on the EM8620L, with no success. It doesn't seem to decode the advanced profile.

The Sigma Chips should also be able to read a 5.1 AC3 audio track which has been muxed into the AVI container.

Yes that's correct, it can't!

If it's possible to change just the profile User/MataData designation (and not the stream), it might be interesting to see if this would effect playback.

Yes that is possible


Cheers

as m$' tools dont create such files, i heavily doubt that this is "standardized" anywhere

apart from that, nothing is standardized in avi

@ crypto and all

I tried it on the SMP8635 and here's the result:

Directly Play *.vc1 file --> OK
.vc1-->vc12avi-->.avi --> Black screen but the file is played.
.vc1-->vc12avi-->.avi-->SolveigMM ASF Multiplexer-->.wmv--> OK

Nota: The .vc1 stream is extract with EVOdemux.
That's all for the moment!

That's cool. I think, I need a SMP863x box. When you do another test some time later, it would be interesting to see, what a muxed in AC3 stream does. The SolveigMM ASF Multiplexer can add AC3 into WMV.
