README

README for the TOOLS directory
==============================

Preamble
--------

In this directory you can find some nice scripts and code that makes
using MPlayer and MEncoder easier, for example scripts for DVD track
encoding in three pass mode or creating SVCDs from a movie.

FIXME: Document the following tools:

bmovl-test


MPlayer scripts in the TOOLS dir
--------------------------------

edgedetect.fp, emboss.fp

Author: Reimar Döffinger

Description: Examples of custom fragment program for OpenGL video out driver

Usage: mplayer -vo gl:yuv=4:customprog=edgedetect.fp


midentify.sh

Author: Tobias Diedrich

Description: Runs 'mplayer -identify' for all arguments while preventing
video window flashing.

Usage: midentify.sh file1 [file2 ...]


mpconsole.sh

Author: Rich Felker

Description: Script to run MPlayer on the console (fbdev/mga_vid/etc.) without
the console text and/or flashing cursor getting in the way.

Usage: mpconsole.sh [mplayer options]


mplmult.sh

Author: Reimar Döffinger

Description: Example how to output video on multiple windows in sync. Might
be even more useful in combination with -vo ggi to distribute
the video arbitrarily.

Usage: mplmult.sh <n> <options>
n Number of MPlayer instances that display the video.
options Any options you would pass to MPlayer, more than
one file will usually not work.


subsearch.sh

Author: Alex Beregszaszi

Description: Collects subtitle files from the directory given as argument
('.' if none is given) and its subdirectories and prints
them as a comma separated list to stdout.

Usage: subsearch.sh [directory]
mplayer -sub `subsearch.sh` movie


wma2ogg.pl

Author: Peter Simon

Description: Converts WMA files to Ogg or MP3.

Usage: wma2ogg [options] <-f FILE1 | -f FILE2 ... | -a>
-f, -file filename
-a converts all WMA files in the current directory
-t output filetype (ogg, mp3) [default=ogg]
-lame I wanna use L.A.M.E. sure enough!
-br bitrate (kb/s) [default=from the WMA]
-del remove WMA file(s) after the transcoding



MEncoder scripts in the TOOLS dir
---------------------------------

divx2svcd.sh

Author: Miklos Vajna

Description: A simple utility that creates an SVCD from a video in an AVI
container.

Usage: divx2svcd.sh <input_avi> [options]
see 'divx2svcd.sh -h' for more info


mencvcd.sh

Author: Jürgen Hammelmann

Description: Converts DVD (or anything else that MPlayer plays) to (S)VCD

Usage: mencvcd.sh <basename> [mencvcd.sh options] [mplayer options]
see 'mencvcd.sh -h' for more info

Note: Requires MPlayer, mjpegtools, VCDImager, cdrdao, and optionally
LAME, tooLAME and SoX.


dvd2divxscript.pl

Author: Florian Schilhabel

Description: Yet another DVD to divx helper script.
This script encodes a DVD track in three pass mode to MPEG-4 with
libavcodec. Optionally it writes the resulting movie file to
CD-ROM the corresponding audio track to MP3. It can also shut
down the computer when it finishes. If you like, you can
watch the MEncoder output on /dev/tty8.

Usage: --help show help
--abr (AudioBitRate) Please enter the desired bitrate this
can be either [96|128|192] kbit/sec (default: 128).
--lang Specify the Language of the audio track this can be
for example <en> or <de> (default: <de>).
--dvd Specify the DVD track you want to encode.
--cdsize Specify the size of your CD-ROM (default: 700MB).
--shutdown Shutdown the system, when the encoding process has
finished. Needs appropriate privileges.
--out Specify the name of your encoded movie. The file
extension will be appended automatically.
--writecd Takes the newly created movie and writes it to a
CD-ROM.
--writedev cdrecord device identifier, for example 0,1,0
--speed writing speed (default: 4)
--dvd-device device to pull the video off (default: /dev/dvd)


aconvert.sh

Author: Jonas Jermann

Description: A hack to allow MEncoder to read respectively encode from audio
only files.

Usage: aconvert.sh <"input file"> <"output file"> <"options">
If no options are specified the following is assumed:
-oac lavc -lavcopts acodec=mp3:abitrate=192

Note: The script is probably bash dependent and it's just a quick
hack, feel free to improve it (or much better: fix MEncoder ;).



qepdvcd.sh

Author: Reynaldo H. Verdejo Pinochet

Description: converter from any supported format to VCD/SVCD PAL/NTSC

Usage: qepdvcd.sh file <options>
Run with no arguments to see the list of options.

Note: You will need vcdimager/cdrecord to master/burn the resulting
files.



Tech scripts in the TOOLS dir
-----------------------------

calcbpp.pl

Author: Moritz Bunkus

Description: A script that calculates the $bpp for a movie, mentioned in
DOCS/tech/encoding-tips.txt, see that document for more info.

Usage: calcbpp.pl <resolution> <aspect ratio> <bitrate> <fps>
resolution: the cropped but unscaled resolution
(use '-vf cropdetect')
aspect ratio: the encoded aspect ratio. All DVDs come at
720x576 but contain a flag that tells the player
wether it should display the DVD at an aspect
ratio of 4/3 (1.333) or at 16/9 (1.777). Have a
look at MPlayer's output - there's something
about 'prescaling'. That's what you are looking
for.
bitrate: the video bitrate in kbit/s
fps: the fps

example: calcbpp.pl 720x440 16/9 896 25


countquant.pl

Author: Moritz Bunkus

Description: Counts the quantizers used for the encoding, mentioned in
DOCS/tech/encoding-tips.txt, see that document for more info.

Usage: countquant.pl < divx2pass.log
It will print out which quantizer was used how often. If you see
that e.g. the lowest quantizer (vqmin=2) gets used for > 95% of
the frames then you can safely increase your picture size.


plotpsnr.pl

Author: Jonas Jermann

Description: Draw PSNR log graphs using gnuplot.

Usage: plotpsnr.pl [options] <file>
-h, --help Display this help message
-quant Display quantizers
-size Display size
-psnr Display PSNR
-iframes Display I-frames
-pframes Display P-frames
-bframes Display B-frames
-aframes Display all frames in different colors
-cmp <file2> Compare two files
-qs <style> Quantizer style
-ss <style> Size style
-ps <style> PSNR style

Default: -quant -size -psnr -qs "p" -ss "i" -ps "p"

Note: Requires gnuplot. Comparison is based on file2. Comparison
assumes that the frame numbers of both files fit.


psnr-video.sh

Author: Matthias Wieser

Description: Calculates the PSNR between two existing video files.
The PSNR is calculated frame by frame.
Also prints the overall PSNR.
The script can be used to:
* Compare different softwarescalers (should I use
-sws 1 or -sws 2 ?)
* Compare different resolutions (is it better to scale
down to 640x360 or to 560x320)
* Compare different deinterlacers
* Compare different video codecs
* Compare video filters (is it better to use -vf hqdn3d
or lavcopts:nr=400)
* [...]

Usage: psnr-video.sh <file1> <file2> [<frames>] [<options1>] [<options2>]

<file1> and <file2> are the video files for which the PSNR
should be calculated.
[<frames>] is the number of frames to process, starting
from frame 1.
[<options1>] are additional MPlayer options for <file1>
[<options2>] are additional MPlayer options for <file2>

A file called ./psnr.dat will be created with the following
content:

File;Y;Cb;Cr
00000001.ppm;34.23;39.54;40.06;35.426
00000002.ppm;33.03;38.71;39.26;34.271
00000003.ppm;33.45;38.91;39.28;34.655
00000004.ppm;32.72;38.69;38.85;33.972
[...]
00000247.ppm;35.55;40.84;42.15;36.785
PSNR:;35.9887

Note: This script relies on the the tool "pnmpsnr" for the
frame-by-frame PSNR calculation.
Be aware that psnr-video.sh needs a lot of temporary space
in /tmp/.


asfinfo

Author: Arpi

Description: a simple ASF header display program

Usage: asfinfo <filename.asf>

Note: Also see MPlayer's -identify option.


avi-fix

Author: Arpi

Description: A simple tool to fix chunk sizes in RIFF AVI files.

dump the data flow between RealPlayer and its codecs.

Usage: - Set the path to the RealPlayer codecs directory in the C files.
- Run 'make realcodecs'.
- Rename the original codecs to match the names expected in the
wrapper sources. The default is to give them a "real" prefix,
e.g. realcook.so.6.0.
- Put the wrappers in the RealPlayer codecs directory.

Notes: Known to work at least on Linux x86 with RealPlayer8.



netstream - access remote streams
---------------------------------

netstream allows you to access most MPlayer stream types from a remote host.
The main purpose of this feature is to make it possible to directly use the
CD or DVD drive of another computer on the network (provided you have the
required bandwidth). On the downside some stream types (currently TV and MF)
are not usable remotely because they are implemented at the demuxer level.

Be aware that currently the server is not secure at all.

Compile the server by running 'make TOOLS/netstream' ('make TOOLS/netstream.exe'
on windows) from the root of mplayer source and then copy the netstream binary
to the right place on your system (usually /usr/local/bin on Unix). Start the
netstream server on the computer you intend to access remotely. There are no
command line arguments.

Play the second track of a VCD on the server with:

mplayer -cache 5000 mpst://servername/vcd://2

Access files on this server with:

mplayer -cache 5000 mpst://servername//usr/local/movies/lol.avi

Note that paths which do not start with a / will be interpreted as relative to
the directory where the server is running. The '-cache' option is not needed
but highly recommended.

netstream will not take -dvd-device, so you must either symlink
your drive to /dev/dvd/ or use the dvd:///path/to/dvd.
for example: mpst://audioserver/dvd:////dev/optical/lg_black_dvd
