  4. I tried SUPER build 21, but it kept bringing up an error when converting to WM7 with WMA audio.
    The same happend with WM8 and WMA.
    The other asf settints for SUPER converted and played on the PC but not on the PVP.
    I thought SUPER had all codecs built in, so why the errors ?

  5. SunPlus PMP Transcoding

    ---

    Or maybe MediaCoder.

    Video
    Backend > FFMPEG
    Format > MPEG4 or MS-MPEG4-V2
    Container > ASF

    Audio
    Encoder > FFMPEG
    Audio Format > IMA Adaptive PCM

    ---

    Or... VirtualDub with ASF Codec / MPEG-4 V1/2/3
    and change container using FFmpeg
    ffmpeg.exe -i test.avi -acodec copy -vcodec copy test.asf

  6. Thanks, I'll give the above a try.

    I just checked the video that this PmP will play with GSpot and got the following info:

    FIle type: ASF (WMA/WMV)
    mime type: video/x-ms-asf

    the following combination of filters was used
    VIDEO: (s) ffdshow MPEG-4 video decoder (R)
    AUDIO: (S) ffdshow audio decoder (R)

    Now all I need is a program to convert my Divx avi's to the exact asf file as above.

  7. For get informaton form ASF/WMV use MediaInfo, not GSpot.
    Quote Quote  
  8. Thanks, thats a great tool.

    Here's the info I need to duplicate:

    video has been encoded in MS MPEG-4 V3 and 1 channel ADPCM.
    Quote Quote  
  9. Use MediaCoder.

    -- Audio
    - Source = Auto Select (MPlayer)
    - Encoder = FFMPEG
    - Downmix = Right or Left Channel
    If You need use Resample, Gain, Normalize.

    -- FFMPEG
    - Audio Format = IMA Adaptive PCM
    If You need - change Bitrate.

    -- Video = Auto Select (MPlayer)
    - Backend = FFMPEG
    - Format = MPEG4
    - Container = ASF
    If You need - change Bitrate.

    -- Picture
    If You need - use Resize (example 320x240) and Frame Rate (default 25.000)

    Transcode small sample and check on PVP.

    If can't play - maybe use AsfBin to re-muxing ASF file.

    Please, check more details - bitrate audio & video; width & height video; sample audio - and use some parameters in MediaCoder.

  10. can't install the latest version of Mediacoder..comes up as error.

    Installed the previous stable version, and used the settings you mentioned.....the program crashed every time, even with different type of avi's.

    Does mediacoder come with all the required codecs built in or is my pc missing something ?
    Quote Quote  
  11. Hmm... MediaCoder never crashed on my computer.

    What is Your operting system and CPU?

    Check MediaCoder FAQ
    Quote Quote  
  12. maybe thats the problem (CPU).

    I've found a program that works and it fast too:

    Arcsoft MediaConverter.

    The only down side is that the maximum video bitrate is 1.5Mbits.
    This produces nice video but small compression artifacts are visible.
    What I need now is a program that does what this software can do (without the need of a top spec pc), but be able to encode at a higher video bit rate.

  13. I'm search, download and install old Windows Media Tools.

    Recompress video file in VirtualDubMod.

    Video > Full processing mode,
    Compression... > Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V3,
    change Data Range (Kilobits per seconds) in Configure,
    optionally - use resize filter and maybe Cropping... option,

    Streams > Stream List,
    right mouse button on audio stream > Full processing mode,
    Conversion... > Channels = Mono,
    optionally - change Sample rate and Precision,
    Compression... > IMA ADPCM > choose format,

    and Save As... to AVI.

    From command line (cmd):
    vidtoasf.exe -in name_file.avi -out name_file.asf -seekable on

    (Windows Media Tools installed vidtoasf and other tools to /Windows folder.)

    Optionally - use AsfBin to build index in ASF.
    Quote Quote  
  14. I've followed your instructions with virtualdubmod and created an avi with the correct codecs and settings and bit rate. The file plays great on the pc.

    Just can't get it to load in to asfbin so it becomes an asf video file.

    How do I do that ?
    Quote Quote  
  15. This is so fustrating because with your help i'm so close.
    I've got the video encoded in the correct Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V3.
    The audio is also correct: IMA ADPCM

    Why can't Virtualdubmod save as asf instead of avi ?

    So all I need now is to keep everything the same except I need an asf file instead of avi.

    ASFbin looks like it could do the job, but it will not load avi's ?

    What should I do now ?
    Quote Quote  
  16. VirtualDubMod can save to AVI, OGM and MKV - not ASF/WMV.

    AsfBin works with ASF/WMV (cut, join and re-mux).

    Change container:
    From command line (cmd):
    vidtoasf.exe -in name_file.avi -out name_file.asf -seekable on

    (Windows Media Tools installed vidtoasf and other tools to /Windows folder.)


    Or change container using FFmpeg:
    ffmpeg.exe -i test.avi -acodec copy -vcodec copy test.asf


    Maybe not needed use AsfBin after change container - just check.

    Other way... use shareware/trialware converter - example YASA Video Converter, SolveigMM ASF Multiplexer...

  17. Just did some indepth checking and the video file must have 48KHz, 1 channel, ADPCM or it will not play on the PVP.
    VirtualdubMod will not encode ADPCM above 44.1KHz.

    First change Conversion... (Audio Conversion) settings - after choose Compression....

    VDM change Sample rate and encode to ADPCM.

    If you've already got the Video and Audio streams in their correct codecs, resolutions and bitrates, you could always create a mux-to-asf/wmv filtergraph in GraphEdit...

    edit: or try WMVMuxer

  20. Just downloaded your file and it plays great on the pc but will not play on the pvp.
    I've done a side by side info comparison using media info and the only difference between your test asf file and the pvp file is:

    pvp file= 1 video stream : MS MPEG-4 V3

    test file= 1 video stream : S-MPEG 4 V3

    (the audio is exactly the same for both files)

    could the above video info be causing the problem ?
    Quote Quote  
  21. Check this - http://www.speedyshare.com/874401451.html

    File is created in MediaCoder (FFmpeg) with MPEG-4 (MP4S) and re-muxing in AsfBin.

    Before in VDM i'm used MS MPEG-4 V3 codec (MP43).

    From MediaCoder console:
    Code:
    ffmpeg.exe -y -i Test1.avi -f asf -vcodec mpeg4 -me full  -b 3000*1K -r 25 -s 320x240 -aspect 4:3 -acodec adpcm_ima_wav -ab 224 -ar 48000 -ac 1 Test1.asf
    (Windows Media Encoder can encode video to ISO MPEG-4 (MP4S), but not use ADPCM audio (?).)

  22. Your new (test1) video file will not play on the pc or PVP.

    I checked the video properties with media info, and everything is exactly what I need.

    Does this file play on your PC ?

  23. Oops, sorry.
    Yes - play, but with ffdshow.
    Without ffdshow - not.

  24. where do we go from here ?

    If the program we find is damn good and it's payware, that's fine.

    What's worth buying that will do the job ?

  25. Maybe check Video Vault PVP...

    Wat is Your PVP device?

    If You have, maybe upload sample file?

    hi, i have the same problem as u guys.

    Recently got myself a PVP and using the Sunplus Transcoding Tool mentioned earlier. My main probs with the software is tat it cannot convert rmvb files directly n doesnt batch-encode. I can find a workaround for the first problem, but not being able to batch-encode files means i have to slowly convert file by file, which is madness. So i was hoping to find another tat does.

    Anyway, I ran file encoded with the Sunplus proggy through MediaInfo, and tis was wat i came up with:


    General #0
    Complete name : G:\HC03.asf
    Format : Windows Media
    File size : 147 MiB
    PlayTime : 22mn 39s
    Bit rate : 908 Kbps

    Video #0
    Codec : DivX 4
    Codec/Family : MPEG-4
    Codec/Info : Project Mayo DivX 4
    Bit rate : 511 Kbps
    Width : 352 pixels
    Height : 240 pixels
    Aspect ratio : 1.467

    Audio #0
    Codec : ADPCM
    Codec/Family : ADPCM
    Codec/Info : Intel ADPCM
    Bit rate : 384 Kbps
    Channel(s) : 2 channels
    Sampling rate : 48 KHz


    I also tried Mediacoder to replicate this format, but i realised their options of 'MPEG4/MS-MPEG4-V2' is different from the DIVX4 codec found in Sunplus, and i'm guessing tis is the reason why our attempts all failed.

    So it seems to me, tat we nid to have a file tat's encoded using DIVX4 (and not the newer divx versions), adpcm audio, in an ASF container. Any idea how we can do tat?

    hey Placio74, speedyshare says my URL is not valid/blacklisted, so I cannot download any of the files, maybe can use yousendit?

    a mixture of successes n failures so far...

    First, found out that Sunplus actually has TWO versions of their transcoding tools, 0.4.1 and 0.5.1, and although video is still using DIVX4 for both, 0.4.1 uses ADPCM, while the newer 0.5.1 uses PCMS16LE. The 0.5.1 file is almost 2 times bigger than the 0.4.1, but quality is similar (EDIT: barring 1 exception mentioned below).

    MEDIAINFO of a file encoded using 0.5.1:
    General #0
    Complete name : E:\Anime\[JZONE.53KD.COM][PV] (2007.02.21) SUEMITSU & THE SUEMITH - Allegro Cantabile (704x480 MPEG2)X.ASF
    Format : Windows Media
    File size : 63.1 MiB
    PlayTime : 4mn 17s
    Bit rate : 2059 Kbps

    Video #0
    Codec : DivX 4
    Codec/Family : MPEG-4
    Codec/Info : Project Mayo DivX 4
    Bit rate : 509 Kbps
    Width : 352 pixels
    Height : 240 pixels
    Aspect ratio : 1.467

    Audio #0
    Codec : PCM
    Codec/Family : PCM
    Codec/Info : Microsoft PCM
    Bit rate : 1536 Kbps
    Channel(s) : 2 channels
    Sampling rate : 48 KHz




    Then I found out that Arcsoft Mediaconverter CAN produce useable files, MEDIAINFO as below:
    General #0
    Complete name : C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\[JZONE.53KD.COM][PV] (2007.02.21) SUEMITSU & THE SUEMITH - Allegro Cantabile (704x480 MPEG2).asf
    Format : Windows Media
    File size : 34.2 MiB
    PlayTime : 4mn 16s
    Bit rate : 1116 Kbps

    Video #0
    Codec : FFmpeg MPEG-4
    Codec/Info : Microsoft MPEG-4 (hacked MS MPEG-4)
    Bit rate : 918 Kbps
    Width : 320 pixels
    Height : 240 pixels
    Aspect ratio : 4/3

    Audio #0
    Codec : ADPCM
    Codec/Family : ADPCM
    Codec/Info : Intel ADPCM
    Bit rate : 176 Kbps
    Channel(s) : 2 channels
    Sampling rate : 44 KHz



    HOWEVER, the audio has a static buzz, probably due to the ADPCM codec. And, after I chose ASF-MPEG4, I can only choose certain settings while some are greyed out...

    AND, a pecularity of the ADPCM codec in Arcsoft's s/w is tat if i played a Arcsoft encoded file, then play a 0.4.1 encoded file, the static buzz will also be present in the latter. But If i play the 0.4.1 file upon starting the machine and dun go anywhere near the Arcsoft file, no buzz.

    sigh, the search continues....
