AMV converter/encoder? RRS feed

All replies

  • Hi Shimmy,

    I'm afraid the problem is not supported in Microsoft supported forum.

    .NET always use DirectX assembly to play video or movie, there are some samples in below links:

    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/graphics/zMoviePlayer.aspx

    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/audio-video/videosav.aspx?msg=2891418

    I think you'd better post in third party production supported forum.

    Thank you for your posting and understanding.

  • My question is directed to .NET users like me, that encountered this scenario and are willing to share their experience with the community.

    I do think it belongs on MSDN forums, perhaps under a different category.

     

    As per your links, I am looking for a converter that can read any input file, and convert it to a .AMV file.

  • Hi,

    You can read this thread. It lists several ways to play audio/video files.

    I hope this can help you.

    I'm not looking for an audio/video player, I'm looking for an encoder that can encode files to AMV format.

    Thanks

  • Hi Shimmy,

    I'm not sure that it works for .NET Framework.

    I found this:

    The S1mp3 players ship with often buggy, Microsoft-only GUI's for converting video to the AMV format.

    It uses the FFMpeg framework  to be able to use our AMV-tools with a lot of existing video-related software.

    I hope this can help you.

  • Hi Paul, I'm sorry but I didn't notice this answer before.

    Anyway, I have tested that too, but it's kinda buggy too, and also is very outdated.

    It supports a very small variety of input filetypes.
    For some types, I will have to convert the file twice, first to make it readable for the amv-codec-tools converter then to amv.

    Do you have any suggestions on how to get around this?
    Or if you know of a way to merge it into the original (updated) FFmpeg, maybe I just need to copy some files and some links and recompile. I am not so familiar with C language.

    Unless you know of other tools.

    My goal is to take the most input files possible, and be able to convert to amv.
    Thanks for all your effort. 

    Cheers, Shimmy

    BTW, Christine, I didn't understand the caution bellow your post.

  • Hi Sjimmy,

    The link in my last post is searched from Internet myself. I'm not familiar with the video/audio converter.

    I just try my best to help you.

    I think you may post in General Windows Development Issues forum. There may be experts in that forum so that you can get better response.

    Thanks.
