Hi guys, I'm new here, glad to be finally part of you wonderful lot, I came across this thread on about how one would extract FMVs from a Gamecube game:viewtopic.php?f=44&t=93501
and while it is great, I also done another method on accessing the games using GC-Tools. I did it to the gamecube version of Resident Evil 3 inwhich I wanted to extract the FMVs which I managed to locate. However, this is where the problem lies, unlike in that tutorial where the videos were in Bink format, this one was in .STR extension, which is also the same kind that PS1 games used, but very strange enough, after hours of researching on the internets, NOONE has ever discussed these .STR video files as they cannot be played whatsoever!
I have tried loading it into converters and loaded it through DirectShowSource via. AviSynth but it says it doesnt recognise the file type, I even tried playing it through a PSX movie players which ultimately rejected it or in some cases, crashed it.
I really want to try and view these great FMVs as they are one of a kind, and I stil cant get my head around that it seems no one has ever come across .STR files in a gamecube game. I would really appreciate it if anyone can help me on this, unlike other consoles I dont know too much on how videos are encoded for the Gamecube except for Bink, but it seems more than one kind can be used on the console.
Thanks for hearing and I hope to hear back from you lot too!
