I split an .avi file into 12 h263 frames... When I concatenate them and
then, using ffmpeg, compressed them to mpeg1video and use ffplay to play the
resulting movie it all works fine. But when I put the raw RGB frames on
Paint Shop Pro they aren't much good :( Besides that, a lot of frames are
So... I think I have 2 problems:
- FFMpeg is not recognizing my H.263 RTP Payload header (RFC2190)
- Something is wrong on my code because I'm losing a lot of frames...
Michael, do you know any util that let's me see the header (or the format)
of the H.263 frames that I generate with ffmpeg (using the command that you
gave to me)? I just need to see what is ffmpeg expecting...
Thanks once more
