  • Expression

    Danorum wrote an action that uses MS's Expression Encoder to convert dvr-ms files. He was kind enough to post it in the forum. I haven't had a chance to dl expression and try it out yet, but it looks very promising.

  • H.264 -> DVR-MS

    Struck me while I was out walking the dog last night that part of bringing DirectTV tuners to WMC is modifing the SBE to support H.264 video. If this is correct, this is great news for everyone looking to archive ATSC MPEG content in a smaller format.

    It's been a long time since I've bored anyone with some programing, but given the dearth of information on use the Stream Buffer Engine (SBE) to create DVR-MS files (especially using managed code) I figured it was time to share; maybe save someone else the pain of figuring this out. The code...

    I've been investigating different ways to convert ATSC HD dvr-ms files to other more efficient formats (MP4) for a few weeks. The trick, and also the hard part, has been figuring out how to preserve the the surround sound; getting high quality video into a file isn't nearly as difficult. One...

  • Convert with Ffmpeg

    Following up on my post yesterday. I wrote an action that makes using ffmpeg to convert dvr-ms files much simpler. It uses a similar method of defining profiles. although in an xml format, to pre-define the video and audio properties ffmpeg will use to convert the file. To use the new action Verify that...
