@ezar2003, are you looking/aiming to submit that demuxer as a patch to mplayer for linux (and mplayer for windows) and/or xbmc?
ps! remember that the mplayer-devs are really fussy about accepting patches, make sure add doxygen tags/info, and don't do cosmetics

i am really suprised that dvr-ms support has not been included yet either by the xbmc devs or the mplayer team...
microsoft are about to release their xbox extenders for mce but it would be nice to see xbmc add support and beat ms at their own game.................anyone got any info about the possibilities of this being considered??

b) creates a .conf file... (if you have a sample.dvr-ms creates sample.dvr-ms.conf in same dir) and add demuxer=35 inside...
hi, this is great stuff, but can someone clarify this bit please??
- loonytunes - 2004-11-01 23:39
hi ok, this maybe a matter of not having some config right, (see above post) but i can now play dvr-ms- sort of....... :-(
very blocky and freezes up after a few seconds any help please??

that is an example:
1. you have a file that it names sample.dvr-ms
2. create a text file and names it sample.dvr-ms.conf (put this file in the same dir that sample.dvr-ms is it)
3. now edit sample.dvr-ms.conf and put demuxer=35 inside...
conf example file
and... if you want to test dvr-ms sample file (rename it to sample.dvr-ms)

i've been following this thread a bit, and i have the video playing on the xb, however no audio. video stream seems to play fine (sometimes a bit blocky, but decent)
could i be missing a codec to play the audio? if so, how to fix?

hi as i see it, this can play a file as long as you create a custom file with the same name as the file you are trying to play, is there a way of actually getting playback for a all dvr-ms on my drive without having to create a file with names for every file? and is this being submitted to the mplayer guys for building into the mplayer releases which would mean in xbmc too, i just want to play my dvr-ms :bowdown:
- ezar2003 - 2004-11-09 00:29
@loonytunes: can you test with this mplayer (2004-11-08) port (you don't need .conf file!!! - i send it to mplayer guys -
@umopdn: please post a sample file
- loonytunes - 2004-11-09 10:15
ok, image quality is fine, but i have no sound on any dvr-ms files, everything now plays without having to have the config file though...
this is coming on really well so much respect to you for doing this...
1: no sound
2:cant fast forward or rewind faster than 4x or it crashes
3:everytime i stop playback everything sticks and i have to restart my box
