DSVideo 1.01 released
some encoder fixes.
Nick Ludlam has sent word that the DSvideo team has released version 1.01 of DSVideo and the encoder that saw their initial release earlier this week.




[title:Changes from version 1.0 to version 1.01]

-----------------------------------------

Encoder:

+ Update help information when the encoder is run with no arguments to

include the version number, to clarify the usage of the "-w" option

and to show some examples of common use.

+ Remove -s option on windows, as it doesn't work there yet.

+ Add support for videos at 23.97fps

+ Fix the makefile for x86_64 linux platforms.

+ Fix audio resampling bug when converting from sample rates lower

than 32kHz.

+ Fix freezing / memory allocation problem with certain video inputs.

+ Change default output filename to be the input file name with the

extension changed to '.dsv'



Decoder:

Unchanged.



Also a source fix was issued for people to recompile the DLDI patches should their cart not work and some DLDI files were recompiled and hosted on the site.

I will add a mirror to GBATemp shortly and you can grab the new and improved DLDI files from that link too.
It may however not be worth using the DLDI files unless you run into trouble as some of the sources used are not the latest versions.

Notice also that the "improved" dldi files have "arm7" in the name, not sure if it would make a difference but normally dldi is put into arm9 rather than arm7.

here is a package for those unable to use the windows converter:

just open copy the video file you want to convert into the folder I posted above, open convert.bat input the files name in Quotes and press enter.

Yes, but due to some optimisations, DSVideo uses ARM7 for libfat instead of ARM9 ... still, the point of DLDI is kind of gone when you have to make a new DLDI file for each card.

So, none of the improvements in this version are filesize decreases? That means it's still not a worthwhile replacement for the already popular DPG format.

You say this now but once they do decrease the file size, it may take over the popular DPG format. Maybe they can make it less as well xP.

DPG is good, but still leaves a lot to be desired. Take a look at Caiman's Video Codec (unfortunately, it's rather commercial and rather expensive) tailored specifically for Nintendo DS:

This quality/size ratio is unbeatable. It's a pity we can't have something like that ...

Well, I had Last Order: Final Fantasy VII, and I tried it out with both formats:
AVI (original) size: 173 mb
DPG size: 57 mb
DSV size: 63 mb

So it isn't that bad at all. 6 mb for better quality is not a problem

But, in this case, I am afraid to say I didn't notice any better quality, it was very slightly blurry, BUT subtitles are a lot clearer than with DPG.
I will try another video, and report back with results if you want.

I'd be lucky to have avi playback (go chishm !) or mpg playback cause I want to be able to quickly check the files on the pc too.

That would be awesome... dsv is neat, but like dpg kinda unhandy and not back convertable once converted into dsv....

Off-topic:
Is there a way to convert from dpg to mpg anyway ? I heard something about decoding using the decoder and then merging with ffmpeg, any Idea on how to do that ?

Why'd you want to do that? the resolution would be too small, and you probably have the source

    22 was on gamepass and had tons of players. but they removed it Feb 29th and pretty hard to find a match now.

    Get 24 then, it on gamepass now, plenty of peeps play that

    I dont play because it's no fun to lose all the time. lol. Like I said, madden 22 and early I was pretty decent at. Not sure all what mechanics changed since 23 but I win like 1 of every 10 games. Then when I do win, they try to pause glitch me or leave with a few seconds left in the 4th. lol
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Yea I hate players like that, sore losers. You could always just start a season against computer, but I know not as fun.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    if im getting completely stomped at halftime, like 28-0, ill just concede and let them have the win. No fun to keep playing the 2nd half. Haha. And not fair to not just give them the win.

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    But when other people quit without conceeding, I often enough get a loss for it even though I was winning.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Year after year after year they dont fix that. Or the pause glitch people keep doing, or trying to do.

    I read online people have changed they're timezone on Xbox system to play games few hours early, I wonder if that is a bannable offense. Oh well not gonna risk it, I can wait till midnight.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Another thing I cant stand, glitch players. They use a glitch play they know your defense will fail at. And they know if you dont know how to adjust for it. They will just do the same play after play after play after play. lol. But they're not so crafty on defense and usually only win by spamming.
