Is there a way to play DVR-MS format files? - enzoweb - 2006-07-23 11:07
I use a freeware TV scheduler program called Webscheduler to capture TV shows on my PC. The developer has decided to stop supporting AVI and the closest format it saves in is DVR-MS. I can play these fine on my PC with Windows Media Player, but XBMC doesn't even see them.
I've looked around for a DVR-MS to AVI / MPG converter, but haven't found one that works.

dvr-ms is not a default filetype for xbmc. you add it however. Read this for instructions: http://www.xbmc.xbox-scene.com/wiki/index.php?title=AdvancedSettings.xml#.3Cvideoextensions.3E
even if you add it, i dont know if it will play. i think the most current mplayer partially supports dvr-ms, but i dont think the version that comes with xbmc using does. (xbmc uses an older build of mplayer.)
if the files are protected, they definately will not play. you should really investigate some new software to record with.

So I guess STILL no .dvr-ms support? Can anyone verify this?
- elupus - 2006-08-13 13:17
no i can't verify it. it was fixed partly a few days ago. it should play, albeit abit choppy on some samples. and it's in the default extensions

FYI; DVR-MS files should play in XBMC-builds from 9th of August 2006, (thanks to John Donaghy), however development on this is still in prograss so playback may not be perfect just yet, you may experince slightly jerky, choppy or stutter effects like Elupus stated. Please feel free to submit bug-reports and problem samples as normal though.
Big thanks also goes to elupus for his continued development of this (and everything else)
DVR-MS plays, but no sound? - GrandGazoo - 2006-09-16 17:26
I just updated my Xbmc with the XBMC-CVS_2006-09-13-T3CH release, and I can play Dvr-Ms video file now, which I think is a great addition! But I only get the video feed of those files, no sound. I have sound for every other format I could try (mpg, mov, avi, divx) but not for dvr-ms. I also tried the XBMC-2006-09-11-PIMPED release for good measure, again, no sound.
Is this a known bug (I looked in the know_issues but there was no mention of this).
I have a Xbox v1.0, with an EvoX (don't remember which version though). I read my dvr-ms file from a smb share over my MS MediaCenter 2005 box.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

yea i think this is know. or atleast i have some vague recognition of that it might be so. there is still no fully working dvr-ms demuxer in mplayer nor libavformat as is.

dvr-ms files were playing with sound on the 8/09/2006 version. In the 9/13/2006 build the video plays better (prob the 9/9/06 to use livavformat) but sound is no longer working. Will try and get a bug submitted if it is not already.

As of the 9/24/06 build, DVR-MS files are playing again. While the video before did look better we need to have sound. Hopefully some day we will have both the updated video and sound, but for now at least it is working and my wife is happy!
