how to play the dav files
I convert my file from DAV to AVI but could not play it proberly.The quality is very poor please help
PLEASE, INFORM WHICH SOFTWARE CAN OPEN EXTENTION “DAV”
ffmpeg -i pieceofsht.dav -vcodec copy goodvideo.avi
the one above is for mjpeg dav to mjpeg avi
this one below is for h264 dav to h264 mkv
you may have to increase the probesize
ffmpeg -probesize 5270722 -i pieceofsht.dav -vcodec copy goodvideo.mkv
From what I can gather, the dav files are just raw encoded streams that simply lack a container.
VLC can handle the dav files but requires some adjustments to play at the correct frame rate since vlc can’t get the video length down.
For vlc h264 dav; use "--demux h264”.
For vlc mjpeg dav; add the file extension mjpeg to the filename and then play it using VLC.
My friend can play the .dav file he sent me but I can’t on my Mac.
change the .dav file extension to .avi - Windows will bitch but do it anyways - you can always change it back. .dav is just a container.
