Title: Quicktime import
Post by: anse on November 11, 2006, 02:56:48 pm
I am trying to open a Quicktime movie in Avidemux on Windows. It is a Quicktime DV-PAL -movie created with Avid Xpress Pro. Doesn\'t work.
Does avidemux support any kind of raw dv stream file or Quicktime Movie DV-PAL?

Might need a modification
Could you provide a small sample of the DV-quicktime file ?
A few frames would be enough

Both files exported from Avid Xpress Pro:

DV-stream: http://epj.minner.no/avidemux/test-dv-stream-lower-field-first-pal.dv
Quicktime Movie (DV-PAL codec): http://epj.minner.no/avidemux/test-qt-movie-dv-pal-short.mov

Both PAL 4:3 720x576 Lower field first

Thanks for fast answer and fix.

The DV-stream file (.dv) does still not open.
The QT Mov (DV-PAL codec) file opens, but when playing it plays at about 1fps in Avidemux. Same happens when I export to for example AVI with X264/MP3 codecs from Avidmux.

Since it is difficult to see the \"stutter\" effect on the short file, please try this longer QT Movie DV-PAL file from Avid in Avidemux:

http://epj.minner.no/avidemux/avid-qt-movie-dv-pal-short-30sek.mov (27MB)

(QT Movie PAL-DV, 720x576, interlaced, bottom field first. Plays perfectly in QT Player.)

As a workaround you can use MPEG Streamclip (QuickTime installation needed) and save your MOV file as AVI (no re-encoding, just container format is altered).

Or use XMedia Recode: Select AVI in "Format" tab, select Copy in "Video" and "Audio" tab. Add these Settings as "Job" and press "Encode". (Again, no re-encoding, just container format is altered).

Avidemux can now decode your AVI video successfully (I tested it, here is the remuxed file (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/3684829/vids/test.avi)). BTW, in MPEG Streamclip you can also edit (cut, trim) your video; with XMedia Recode only trimming is supported.

this is not avi, this is mov
what build does the job for you?

As I said your MOV file was saved to AVI by MPEG Streamclip without re-encoding. The AVI file can now be opened and decoded by Avidemux (tested with 2.5.4 and 2.6.)

Should be completely ok with r8266
You can get binaries here http://www.avidemux.org/nightly

It does open it, and the video plays fine, which is a huge breakthrough, thank you.
However audio gets unexpected noise over it.
Do you think that can be fixed as well?

If you are using the windows version, the build bot is still stuck at an older version,
else be sure to have >=r8266

Oh, right. So where do i get 8266?

Thanks, this trick also resolves a case of the "file too short" problem I was getting when my input files are large (>250MB) vbr QuickTime/mov/MJPEG files generated by X-Plane.

I didn't even need to use a separate program to change the container format. Avidemux with "copy" output codec is sufficient.
