Subject: [mythtv-users]  Converting "mythtranscoded" files to avi...

> A question for the transcoding gurus out there.

> It's set to transcode to:

>    2400kbps
>    MP3 audio with 32K sample rate.
> This seems to produce NUV files (and good results played back on MythFE or

> For Xmas I got a Yamada DVD player that can play back DIVX, XVID, MP4 etc.
> Unfortunately it won't play the NUV files even if I rename them to AVI.
> I've tried getting ffmpeg to rewrite them to an AVI container using:
>      ffmpeg -i FILE.nuv -f avi -vcodec copy -acodec copy OUT.avi
> However, what I get then is a file where the video plays at roughly twice
> the speed of the audio!
> So my questions are:
>     1) HOW do I convert the NUV files to a playable AVI (as in playable on

>     2) Can I do this WITHOUT further transcoding?
>     3) Can I get Myth to do the transcoding correctly in the first place?

You can using nuv2avi at http://mythtv.beirdo.ca/nuvtools/nuv2avi.php
For me I the SVN version wouldn't compile until I commented out the RTjpeg 
code. After that it worked for at least one file a few months ago. I haven't 
used it since then.
