Build error MinGW/VCD

I'm unable to build with VCD enabled in the latest SVN under 
MinGW-w64/GCC 4.9.3. I am using libcdio 0.93/paranoia 10.2+0.93. I was 
using 0.83 thinking that was the problem but updating to 0.93 didn't 
change anything. Here are the log files if they are needed:

ifo viewer for GNU/Linux?

Greetings mplayer-users!

I'm attempting to rip a DVD, which works great - thanks mplayer -dumpstream!

However, I don't know the (english) subtitle stream to rip due to the
subtitles being in a separate stream and not burned into the video.

Is anyone familiar with an IFO viewer that can list the video, audio,
and subtitle streams when selecting various menu options from a DVD
main menu?

Any help would be excellent!

The essence is, if I am correctly: Is it possible to rip while the music 
is playing?

If that is what is wanted, then I doubt it. Mainly beceause ripping and 
playing are done at different speeds. What you perhaps try to do is play 
the CD and then catch the sound and rip that at the same time.

As you just capture input, you do not have the difference between the 
songs hence the big wav file.

What you could do is the following (not exactly what you want) is to rip 
the first song. As soon as that is done, start playing that song. and 
start ripping the next one. Add the second song to the queue of mplayer 
and so on till the last one.

You will have a delay in the start of playing. You could even increase 
the delay by first copying the first song as wav and when the copy is 
ready, start playing.

Not sure what the speed is on a RPi, but that might help. What you are 
in fact doing is making a cache of the first file and then work from

Playing (one large) WAV/MP3/... and a corresponding .cue-sheet?

Hello all,

I have ripped a number of CDs to large, single WAV-files. That is, one
CD = one file. I also have the corresponding .cue-sheet which
obviously contains the starting time of each "track" within my WAV

Is there a way to make player recognize my WAV and .cue as "one unit"
so that I can skip to the next track as defined by the cue sheet (or
back one track)?

Here's an excerpt from my cuesheet as made by mkcue:

FILE "cdda.wav" WAVE
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
    INDEX 01 03:17:28
    INDEX 01 05:37:66
    INDEX 01 07:34:03

I have thought about a helper scripts that parses the current cue
sheet, the sends "seek xxx 2" commands to player via a fifo pipe
whereas xxx is a calculated value from the cue sheet. Yet this seems
overly complicated and might already be included.

Another thought is, can playlists contain "chapters" for a single WAV

How to create a "neutral sequence" at the beginning of a video track ?

Is it possible to add a short "neutral sequence" (=short sequence of black -or white- stable image) at the
begining or at the end of a video track with a command line program (ffmpeg, MEncoder, mkvtoolnix
collection or other) ?
I am looking for the video equivalent of the "pad" parameter of the sox audio editor but would accept a more
complex procedure. 

Notice that creating a "neutral sequence" with 
ffmpeg -i {original file} -t {some seconds} -vf "fade=t=in:st=600:d=0.5" {neutral sequence} 
is not a satisfactory solution because the {neutral sequence} may not be concatenated to the {original
file} because the caracteristics (codec,...) of the created {neutral sequence} usually differ from
those of the {original file}. André

Windows binary proprietary codec

Dear all,

I have a windows binary proprietary codec that I need to load from Linux.
Following some examples that I have found on your list, I have done these

1) Edit etc/codecs.conf and add this entrance:

audiocodec g729b
  info "Our provider g729b"
  status working
  format 0xXXX
  driver acm
  dll "g729b.acm"

2) Compile 32 bit mplayer:

export CC="gcc -m32"
./configure --enable-cross-compile --target=i686-linux
--prefix=/usr/local/bin --codecsdir=/usr/local/lib/codecs
make install

The output:

MPlayer SVN-r37401-snapshot-4.4.7 (C) 2000-2015 MPlayer Team

Playing colo.wav.
libavformat version 56.25.101 (internal)

Feeding a video-only elemental stream (.264?) into mplayer via stdin?


Just trying to see here if something ought to be possible before
trying lots of work to actually try it...

Say I have a video-only elemental stream being created in real-time.
(Not being completely familiar with terminology here by "video-only
elemental stream" I mean the H.264 annex b form where the NALU's in
the stream are demarcated by hex strings like 0x00000001 or 0x000001.
It's just that, no container or anything else. I believe some people
refer to this as having a ".264" file type.) If I can get that stream
to come out as stdout from some program, can I pipe it in to mplayer
stdin and play it (in real time while it's being created)?

If so, can I get some hints as to how specifically to do this?

Thanks in advance.
