    Viewing a PMF file on Windows (without sound)

    Sponsored Links
    I achieved to view a pmf video on windows, but without the sound.

    You need [Register or Login to view links] to achieve this.

    1. extract the video from the file: mplayer -dumpvideo -dumpfile raw.264 <filename>.pmf
    2. play the extracted video: mplayer raw.264

    I think it should work on linux too...

    Cheers

    Try this:-

    1. Dump video:-
    mplayer -dumpvideo -dumpfile video.264 <filename>.pmf

    2. Dump Audio:-
    mplayer -dumpaudio -dumpfile audio.xxx <filename>.pmf

    3. (I think - not tested this, but i'm pretty sure) You can combine the audio & video files, using a tool called [Register or Login to view links] (which you'll have to read up about as i'm too tired to explain how to use)

    You should end up with a combined audio/visual file that you can then play on the pc (in fact TMPGEnc can encode it in a variaty of different formats - lots of info about this on the net - outside the scope of this topic!).

    Hope that helps you.
    (If i get some time soon i'll test it all out and post a proper tutorial)

    Edit:
    Corrected type in mplayer lines above (D'oh).
    And...
    you might as well just ignore the audio bit anyway as it doesn't extract audio in any usable format - it seems that its interwoven with the video and uses the same file headers to enable playback - the extracted audio doesn't appear to have any usable headers.

    Sorry - trying to helpful, but failed miserably!

    I think the audio is Sony Atrac3 format. But I do not know any player that is able to read raw atrac3 files. Does somebody know one?

    Look for the pmf-file inside the iso.

    Another Question: Are pfms simply h264 videos with atrac3? Can we make them ourselves then?

    The simpler solution is to mount your iso image using [Register or Login to view links]. Then you can browse directory and find video files.
