At least I posted one DV file.
I'm fighting with my deadline for an article, but at least I posted a DV file with 60i gamma on/off.

I have written a small piece on playback issues with RAW DV
files on the Windows platform with both the QuickTime player
(which per default plays .DV files on the Windows platform)
and the default Windows Media Player.

Check out the article:

I'm sure we'll hear more from Kaku *after* his deadline!

Ryan Mattos August 31st, 2004 04:40 PM

sorry but how do i view this file? i downloaded it and now my comp won't play it

Kaku Ito August 31st, 2004 06:15 PM

You first have to unzip it.

Rob, I applied the changes to WMP, the footage looks good, but if it's indeed 60i I can't see any interlacing on my computer monitor which is what I'd expect to see.


EDIT: Turned off all the hardware support and now I can see it.

Kaku Ito August 31st, 2004 08:39 PM

The reason why I provided the file in native DV format is for your to copy it to DV tape and watch it on regular TV monitor for the real quality. You won't get the correct interlace footage on computer monitor nor plazma/LCD display(at least most of them).

That reminds me a question, does anone know anyone talks about plazma/LCD display which can playback interlace correctly?

I couldn't play it at all in WMP, I had to go and import it into premier 6.5 and convert it to a DV AVI.

Kaku Ito August 31st, 2004 08:57 PM

Maybe I should capture it on Adobe Premiere Pro and provide the footage in the future.

WMP cannot play native .DV files indeed for some odd reason.
You will need QuickTime if you want to play the file you can
download above. Any NLE should be able to load the file fine
for playing in the NLE, export to tape or export to DV AVI which
WMP can play.

really? i thought wmp checks the .dv extension as one its extensions it can play....

Stefan Scherperel September 1st, 2004 02:04 PM

I play native DV files all the time in WMP no problem at all.

Aaron Koolen September 1st, 2004 02:38 PM

You just need to download a codec and you're happy. It will play. I can't remember the one I used, I think it was FastDv or something.


Rob Lohman September 2nd, 2004 05:24 AM

Well I've never been able to play a native .DV file with any version
of WMP I have here. I can imagine it might work if you install an
extra DV codec indeed. Perhaps I should say the Microsoft DV
Codec in combination with WMP doesn't play .DV files?

I added one more file. This footage which I thought it looked great playing back with our ProjectionDesign's Action!Model 1 projected on 120 inch screen.
