DVRMStoWMVHD.exe is a command line utility that converts dvr-ms
files to WMV files. It is designed to work with ATSC files with HD
video and AC3 audio streams. By default (no custom profile is
specified) to will convert the dvr-ms file to a WMV file with VC-1
video and WMA Pro 5.1 audio with a programmatically built profile based on the attributes of the source file. A custom profile can be passed as the
third argument if more control is desired over the target format. I
have tested the cbrZune.prx file that comes with DTB, and it will
convert files to that format, including downmixing the audio, but the
video will skew a bit because of aspect ratio changes.
is preferred, and needs to be configured to deliver 5.1 audio for AC3
streams for this to work properly. Other AC3 decoders should work if
properly configured, but will not be supported.
While the application should work on XP if WMF11 is installed, it was developed and tested on Vista.
