  • The file header tells you which streams are inclued, and their format (eg. xvid, dvsd, auds).

  • hi VCResearch,

    one option is to use an a filter that is already built like ffdshow to convert it from whatever format it starts in and then pass that to your wmv encoder.

  • It should be noted that ffdshow is not an option for non-GPL'd software.
