ReClock is amazingly for reversing PAL speedup!!!

Wow.

I just started using ReClock to play some PAL sped-up content. Slowing down to the original 24p and the corrected pitch really makes all the difference in the world. The speed-up without a time stretch is absolutely DREADFUL!

I guess this is how PAL land folks feel about 3:2 in NTSC land

Regardless, ReClock is awesome.

Is there any way to achieve the same effect using more multipurpose tools like ffdshow? I don't like ReClock's slow startup, and poor seek / fullscreen toggle performance.

I've never tried it but could you use AviSynth in ffdshow? Looking at it I'm not sure how you'd get at the audio from the video filter, as there's no AviSynth component in the ffdshow audio filter. And even if you could process the audio in the video filter where would it go afterwards? In fact, as I type this I think I've persuaded myself that it's a bad idea.

The other way (which I use) is to slow everything down beforehand with eac3to. Not an option if you just want to stick in a DVD and play it though. I'm guessing you want to do it on the fly.

I've never tried reclock, and I don't see any point of slowing down PAL playback since all morden players nowadays provides auto refresh rate changer.

It's not about refresh rate. It's how the frame rate has been changed from the source.

too bad that it is technically not possible that Reclock does PAL speeddown when you bitstream the audio

It's amazing when it comes to correcting the pitch shift. I found some Buffy season 4 DVDs for CHEAP at a local thrift store, and ripped a bunch of episodes without even thinking about it. Naturally, they're 25p, with PAL speedup without time stretching. So, this is the easy way for me to watch them without re-encoding

Laziness FTW

Just a note - do download ReClock from here:

http://www.videohelp.com/tools/ReClo...sions#download

The old version on its web page is VERY out of date

I tried Reclock to get PCM WASAPI output, but it gives problem when I tried to play HD audio track.....
I really wish some audio renderer can do PCM WASAPI output without breaking bitstream HD audio track.

By default, Reclock has to resample the audio.
