MPEG-4???

Postby Bushido Philosopher » Sun Jun 30, 2002 4:30 pm

What is this? I thought it was a DivX derivative. But then it won't play....

What is it exactly and what do I need to play it?

I thought it was a DivX derivative.


other way around, DivX is a variation of microsoft's premature mpeg 4 codec (msmpeg4 version 3). Anyway mpeg 4 is an mpeg standard, just like mpeg 1 and 2, but mpeg 4 is more or less brand new. DivX 4, 5, and XviD are all ISO compliant mpeg 4 codecs. Anyway, I'ma guess you're talking about the mp4 file format, cuz you probably downloaded bone's Lil Piece o' Heaven video you sick bastard (jk, that video amuses me >_<) in which case...

you need wmp4player to play this, find it on doom9's software page

After 1000 downloads total of DivX 3.11a/MPEG-1, I decided it was time to do something to (1) stem the flow of downloads and (2) promote a newer, better standard. :-D

heh, good strategy ^^' but I was glad to see that somebody in the music vid business was using something other than mpeg-1. Only problem is I can't figure out how to convert the raw .bin I extracted to something I can open in Vdub so I can look at the movie frame by frame.. *-* er.. uh.. i mean... owell, no covering for that one :p

Doom9 is the god page, don't diss it. Anyway you can't drag stuff into wmp4player, you have to go File>Open>A_Little_Piece_o'_Heaven_v1.00a_184Kbps.mp4

um.. yea.. start wmp4player and press file>open>A_Little_Piece_o'_Heaven_v1.00a_184Kbps.mp4 like I said. Did you do that? No other way of opening will work.

Yeah, it's humorous, to an extent. The gag starts getting old after a while, though. :-)

Although the DivX 3.11a and MPEG-1 versions are out there, somewhere...you may be able to find them if you look around enough.
