3ivx has updated their beos software again, this time including an encoder, so you can save your movies as 3ivx. This is great news. I really think we should be pushing 3ivx as a format for popular things like movie trailers, since they are offering support for lots of platforms. Thanks 3ivx guys!

    Using the Encoder with MediaConverter

    Has anyone had any luck using the encoder? It has done nothing but crash when I try and use it in mediaconverter.

    also with the Videorecoreder ->crash

    No mather what settings I try for frames or audio…
    I hope it will get better because it looks promising

    If you are having problems with the encoder, drop me a line at dlmcpaul@primus.com.au

    The currently released encoder only handles RGBA32 as input. If the input is not RGBA32 you generally get a almost unrecognisable movie. But maybe you get crashes as well.

    A new encoder will probably be posted soon that fixes the above.

    Make sure you run conversions from the terminal so you get the debug output which may help me.

    Re: The Encoder doesnt work with any mediaprogram

    When does it crash?

    Before you start converting, immediately you start converting or part way thru converting?

    I have not tested with Personal Studio only with MediaConvertor. Have you tested with this?

    How fast 3ivx D3 is?

    Any chances of playback with Cel 366@458 128MB of memory?

    I hope it is faster than old DivX was. BeOS DivX dropped frames like hell. Is 3ivx faster or slower?

    Re: How fast 3ivx D3 is?

    As allways it depends :-)

    Movies sized 320×240 can easily be played at 20fps on a PII-350. A 640×480 movie is only playable at about 11fps on the same machine.

    3ivx has yet to be fully optimised. Right now it only decodes a frame on demand, future versions will do more nifty things like decode ahead and others.

    Re: Using the Encoder with MediaConverter

    At first it crashed for me too. However after restarting the media server… the movie played fine - minus the lack of audio. What is the deal with that .. is it the mp3 decoder of Be’s or is it the way in which its recognized in the file?

    Well good job guys. Keep it up

    3ivx w ogg soundtrack.

    what i want to see is 3ivx or divx movies using ogg vorbis for the soundtrack. ive heard that since ogg uses vbr that it may never happen, but just think about this: Ogg vorbis can support more channels that just stereo. wouldnt it be easy (once its more advanced) to make left,right,center,sub, and rear channels for 5.1 surround? then videos could be distributed with true surround sound!

    also, (this is kind of off topic) does anyone know if the the beos divx team plans to update the divx codec for be? the open divx project is moving along quite nicely…

    Re: 3ivx w ogg soundtrack.

    AFAIK, DivX (for any platform) is no more, as it was a hack over Windows DLLs.

    Anyway, just a quick note. OpenDivX is *COMPLETELLY* different from DivX… The codec is not able to play DivX movies nor is able to encode a movie into the DivX format…

    would a beos version of opendivx be possible?

    Re: Using the Encoder with MediaConverter

    hmmmm… under what format uses RGBA32 ? Ive tried quicktime with indeo5, avi with divx, and avi with indeo5 and Mediaconverter still crashes. The only thing I get from mediaconverter on the commandline is the Divx debug. Mediaconverter crashes as soon as it tries to write the video.

    Re: Using the Encoder with MediaConverter

    Could you provide me with some details of your machine?

    Can you try converting some of the videos found in /boot/optional/movies

    The BeOS mp3 decoder does not register for the quicktime file format.

    Talk to the people developing Ogg Vorbis and ask them for a encoder.

    Re: Using the Encoder with MediaConverter

    Im running a Pentium 166mmx with 64mb of RAM. A generic OPL-3AX Soundcard and an old Diamon Stealth 2000 Video Card. I am running Beos R5.03 Professional.
    Everytime I have installed the 3ivx encoer & decoder I have restarted media server & when that seems to fail I then restart the machine itself. Mediaconverter lists 3ivx as a codec to encode to but crashes after writting 0 bytes, and none of the movies in /boot/optional/movies will encode for me.
    My AIM screename is Asukuil, and you can email me at satchmoz@bemail.org .

    It is ported to BeOS. It has not been released by the author yet tough. You can expecte it RSN.

    Not completely right, I’ve been able to play all my DivX movies with DivX for Windows from Project Mayo, which is based on the OpenDivX core, so it CAN play DivX movies. The encoder, on the other hand is not compatible with DivX I think, haven’t tried to encode anything yet.

    Re: 3ivx w ogg soundtrack.

    To the best of my knowledge, there is already a codec that includes both encoding and decoding of the vorbis audio format available for BeOS. It works, last I checked, but for some reason or another, mediaplayer kept chrashing on me. I’ll look into it again as soon as I get a chance.

    And I know I should be writing this eslewhere, but are the documents for the file format reader/writers. I’d be interested in making(perhaps) an ogg format reader/writer so that the ogg format could be used as well. That way, if the vorbis codec isn’t compatible with the quicktime format, then perhaps the 3ivx format could be made to sit inside of an ogg file instead and then all would be well. BTW, more information on the vorbis and tarkin projects can be found at www.xiph.org as well as info on the ogg format itself.

    the ogg vorbis media addon is from the last release of the vorbis tools. The curent version of the vorbis tools for beos does not have the codec. perhaps they are working on it still…

    the new vorbis tools give better sound and compression.
