Feature Requests

Post by lev »

Do you have a place where we can view outstanding feature requests & where they are in your priority queue?

I'm still interested in the ability to specify a video card (especially as a RDP workaround). :D

I don't have a public list but I will move your request to the top of the list.

Hi, I 'd like to ask for a feature: An option to display video properties in avs script. I'm thinking of some kind of "info=true" option in the DGSource filter that would display video parameters and especially frame types (I/P/B).

Thanks.

Inside avs script, e.g. when previewing the script with avspmod.

Is there any existing example of a filter that does that? I don't know how to display info "inside" a script.

For example when using FFMS2 you can display the frametypes like this:

Code: Select all

FFVideoSource("some_video.mkv")

ScriptClip("""subtitle("Frame: "+string(current_frame)+"\nType: "+Chr(ffpict_type),lsp=0)""",after_frame=true)

Your DGMPGDec source filter already has an "info=0/1" option. Although, it doesn't display frame types, but other useful video properties (iirc).

So you want it overlaid on the video? That is easy.

But you said displayed "inside the script". What the heck does that mean? Do you need to just see the frame type overlaid on the video or do you need to access it as a variable in the script?

OK sorry. Overlay it. Nothing regarding variables or so.

It's already implemented for MPEG2. I'll add it for AVC and VC1 also.

I imagine it's already on the Master List (since I've mentioned it on Doom9, with a positive response), but I'm hoping we'll eventually see indexing support for Microsoft's DVR-MS and WTV formats.

I can supply sample streams if/when it's necessary.

From what I've read so far, VideoReDo is the current go-to tool for parsing these formats, but the output streams still need to be indexed. VRD TV Suite (which I understand is needed for WTV+h264 support) is also $95-ish. Not that I begrudge anyone fair compensation for their work, but if possible and for that kind of money, I'd rather have a one-stop indexing tool (with superior support)!

It's all a matter of priorities. MP4 containers are at the top right now due to some commercial work I am doing for a corporation.

After that we have:

MPEG1 video
DVR-MS container
WTV container
PVA container/video
VDR container/video
...

When MP4 is done, negotiation can begin on priorities for the remaining ones.

Don, any news on the video info displaying we discussed in the previous page?

Thanks.

No news. It's all about priorities. I just did a big bunch of work on DGDecNV. I'm taking a short break to finish up a physics paper I am writing. When that's done, the features requested in this thread will be on the agenda, including yours.

Ok, no rush. It's just because you didn't say "yes" or "no" about my request. That's why I asked again. ;)

I'll post this now, but you can read it when MP4 is done... ;)

The order I'd like to see is:
WTV
DVR-MS
PVA
VDR
MPEG1

My reasoning is:

• WTV is the default format from Window 7 Media Center, so the volume of video in this format is going up all the time. Selfishly, this would help me out the most, because I'm using 7MC, and my volume of recorded video in this format is going up all the time!

• DVR-MS is the default format from previous Media Centers (without the TV pack) and, while the format is no longer Microsoft's default, the installed base suggests this isn't going away any time soon.

• PVA and VDR I have never come across myself, and had to look them up. PVA looks to be used by FTA satellite cap cards, and Wikipedia says VDR is a format originating from Linux. So surely even if their use is growing, it's not growing as fast as WTV, or maybe even DVR-MS?

• Really? People still use MPEG-1? Is this just being added for completion?

In the meantime, I've got more than enough little projects to finish for which the current DGDecNV is perfectly suitable, so this is not meant as a prod. Just food for thought...

I have an issue where for some files DGNVtools reports this error at the end of the m2ts file. It has actually coded all the frames but still this error. When I load multiple files to create a single file it stops when it encounters this error at the end of any of the intermediate m2ts file even if you hit either of yes/no/cancel. The error window:

I was wondering if an option could be given which lets the user continue with the creation of the file.

Probably the video PID changes between files. I don't have any plans to support that. You'd have to make separate projects.

If that is not the cause, please start a new thread and post a link to two files that cause this when loaded.

The PIDs are the same, any tool to just cut the last 100MB of the m2ts file. If I use tsmuxer to actually do the cut I dont get the same error. Using DGSplit to split a 20 GB stream is something I am trying to avoid.

You can use segment mode of DGSplit. You'll only have to write the sizes of the segments you select. Anyway, this is not a feature request. Make a separate thread if you want to continue it.

I see you've added this in one of the recent builds, but just in case you didn't realize (or couldn't test), it still doesn't work via RDP. Functionality via RDP is pretty much the only feature I care about right now so I didn't want it to drop off your list if you thought it was resolved now :)

I don't even know what RDP is, so if you want this you'll have to tell me:

a) what is RDP?
b) what is the proposed workaround for it?
c) how would I implement and test that?

If it's remote desktop you are talking about, I remind you that running remote desktop deinstantiates the video driver and that the video driver is required to use CUVID. You should use the known functioning alternatives to remote desktop.

Feature requests:
- Crop in increments of 2x pixels instead of the current limit at 4x (I have a DVD series with a ugly 2pixel top bar)
- Bring back a hotkey for "Close" as in DGIndex (F3 in DGIndex was hotkeyed to close, but now that is Step)
