Good News: Native EX1 MP4 Support in VLC possible soon...

I have been working to try and get the VLC developers to properly support the raw MP4 files straight off the SxS cards.

Here is the thread on their forums:
http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic....45798&p=150923

It has been input into their development ticket system here:
https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/1621

I assume you/they mean VLC will play both Video and Audio (audio currently not played).

I'm just clarifying that because VLC has very limited (low quality) export/encode features.

The short version is that, yes it should be able to play the files with audio, now only video plays.

The audio FourCC is "twos" (stereo 16-bit LPCM). When the file is muxed into a Matroska (*.mkv) file with mkvtoolnix, it plays back with sound in both VLC 0.8.6h and latest 0.9.0-git nightly without a problem. This indicates that the lack of audio is a bug in the MP4 demuxer code in VLC.

I know the quality of import export isnt great, but I think its good to have an easy way to see things instantly, without having to deal with the Clip Browser (which I think is a horrible program)...


Also, I am sure most people have seen this, but the MP$ files are also directly suppored by ffmpeg (which is apparently the source for the conversion code in Clip Browser...)
