I'm new to the board and hope I'm posting in the right category So here was my Problem: I got a 3D side-by-side MKV-Movie but I only have a 2D TV - my question was how to get only the picture of ...

No, you're not missing anything. If you intend to abide by the strictest letter of the law, you either hook the system up to the internet, find freely available kid-friendly non-DRMed content, or go without. What in particular are you worried about? If you're worried about acting unethically, ripping DVDs that you already own for the purposes of easier ...

VLC on Windows (1.1.10 or later): Tools → Preferences Show Settings → All Click Advanced (Click Playlist for VLC 2.1.5) Uncheck "Allow only one running instance" Uncheck "One instance when started from file" VLC on OS X does not provide the same set of options. You can however run multiple instances from the Terminal with open -a VLC.

VLC can do this with an integrated addon. The addon, called VLSub is to be found separately here, it searches and downloads subtitles from opensubtitles.org using the hash of the video currently playing or its title. VLC has an addons/extension site: addons.videolan.org. There is to be found another VLC addon for subtitles, called Subtitle Finder. ...

This can be done in ffmpeg. Before you begin, read this great resource on understanding the math: http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/aspectratios.htm First, calculate the top and bottom padding values. long=width of original, skinny=height of orginal totalPadding = .75*long - skinny top padding = bottom padding = totalPadding / 2 NOTE: if the top and ...

Newer versions of ffmpeg deprecate the "padtop" and "padbottom" options. To do it with the new version, use the same basic logic above. In my case, my original video was 720x404, but I wanted to encode 720x480 - padding the top and bottom. So per-above: (480-404) / 2 = 38 i.e. Pad 38 pixels to both the top and bottom. The "pad" command wants the size of ...

It means that the movie was copied by filming it in a cinema or off a tv, using a camera, therefore, cam. These are almost always illegal copies of very low quality. Xvid is just the file format.

This is the wrong syntax for passing multiple images as input to ffmpeg. Please have a look at the FFmpeg Wiki guide on creating a video slideshow and the image2 demuxer options. You need to tell it to use three digits for the sequence numbers, and start at 84, i.e. ffmpeg -start_number 84 -i island_sizes-CSH\(II\)-%03d.png output.mpg Some further tips: ...

Nvidia 3D vision Video Player will play 3D SBS movies back as a 2D movie. Note that it works only on Windows.

Actually, this can be done directly on the m4v file without totally reencoding the movie with a soft called Subler. I have done it with rentals, and it doesn't affect the DRM protection of the file, so I doubt there is any legal issue with this method. open the iTunes original m4v file in Subler after the file has loaded, click the + to add the srt file, ...

Bino is a cross-platform media player commonly recommended for stereoscopic file playback. Among other features, it supports synchronized playback of multiple streams. The interface may seem a bit primitive or confusing at first, but all you need to do is Drag your two video files into Bino Select "Separate streams, left first" input option and ...

Assuming you have Image Magick installed: convert -delay 20 -loop 0 frames/*.png animation.gif source

Use a relative path like this. Better late than never! Hope this helps other users [.ShellClassInfo] IconResource=name_of_ico_file.ico,0

It may be worth trying VLC to play the file. If the problem continues, you can at least adjust the audio lag/lead to match the video.

google probably already told you, you could buy a couple proprietary software who could do that, but just in case : videocompare, tmpgenc, vidlord... This one's free : http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=138430 (working download links at the end of the thread) Untested because my wine setup is completely screwed right now. It doesn't do side by side ...

This tool might be of use: http://mpgtx.sourceforge.net/ From the Examples section: I want to split this file at 699 Megs so that it can fit on my Video CD! mpgtx -s file {699M} Now processing Chunk 1/2 ... 100.00% Now processing Chunk 2/2 ... 45.31% Here are chunk-1.mpg and chunk-2.mpg (default basename is chunk) Not sure if it ...

There's no way to automatically check if given subtitles match a video perfectly. You would need the ideal ("gold standard") subtitles as well, or some way to match the audio track against the words in the subtitle file, and it goes without saying that this is not practical. Your only chance is to … Align the subtitles manually at the beginning Skip to ...

Stick to movies that are now in the public domain, and thus can legally be copied however you please. Or lobby your representatives to get the law changed to permit people who have legally acquired a copy of a movie to copy it for their own use without Hollywood's approval.

I realize that this question is old but it may help some people. Disclaimer: I'm a founder of the company below! At fleex, we released a video player focused on language learning. We don't display two subtitles at the same time like you said - too difficult for the brain to read two subtitles in different languages - but we "mix" them. That is, we alternate ...

Download and install Avisynth. Open notepad, put in the following: AviSource("c:\movies\somemovie.avi") BicubicResize(720,266,0,0.5) AddBorders(0, 106, 0, 108) Save it as mymovie.avs, and put that into your encoder. You might have to tweak the resize and borders, but generally you can see what's going on here. Also, if your video doesn't load with ...

AutoIt is free. It has an excellent help file with many examples how to deal with specific problems. If you have questions then the forum is a very helpful place ...

Two programs that you might want to take a look at for your use or inspiration are: Blender - 3D modeling, rendering and animation Pencil - 2D traditional bitmap and vector drawing and animation Both are free and open source. Here is some information on open source Flash development.

Flash is a very powerful program, but FlashDevelop is a free, open source, application to create 2D animations compatible with Flash.

i've used GiftedMotion to create .gifs from movies before. on a Mac, so i've used QuickTime 7's ability to export a selection as a group of images and then imported those into giftedmotion to tweak the .gif. given that you asked for .wmv specific instructions, i'll assume you're on windows, so the Mac OS X stuff is of little use to you. GiftedMotion is a ...

Yes, as long as the player supports it. VLC does, and so do many others. The convention is to name the subtitle file the same as the video file, but with a different file extension (like .srt), and the player will automatically pick it up.


2

You need a separate file containing the subtitle information with the same file name as the AVI file, except having a .sub extension. Put the file in the same folder as the AVI file. For Windows Media Player, do the following: Install DirectVobSub Click here to download Play the movie with Windows Media Player While the movie is playing, Click on Play ...


2

Yes. The determining factor is your AVI player. VLC media player (available for Windows, Linux, and Mac) has a dropdown menu that allows you to load the file from a specific location.
