    Question PiTiVi plugins for HDV (.m2t) movie clips

    Not sure if this is Lucid specific, but since I am using PiTiVi under Lucid, I though I'd ask here.

    I am trying to import some clips from my Sony HD camcorder. I used dvgrab to grab them from the camcorder. They came out as a bunch of .m2t files.

    When I import them into PiTiVi, it gives out the following errors:

    Code:
      URI:clip_2-2008.08.24_11-22-49.m2t
      Problem:Missing plugins:
      HDV AUX-V decoder
      HDV AUX-A decoder
    PiTiVi tried to search for some plugins, but could not find them.

    Which plugins am I missing? Where do I get them from? Am I missing some repository? I already have these:

    This is probably a better place to get your question answered.

    Not sure about PiTiVi but VLC saves it's recordings and plays in that format. You might be able to convert them using ffmpeg? Long time since I looked at that but try investigating video conversion.

    I have codec troubles too - the mpeg files I record from MeTV from terrestrial TV (DVB-T) don't play well on Media Player and it asks for a codec.
    I have medibuntu, restricted extras and win32 codecs. I am also wondering what else I need?

    Re: PiTiVi plugins for HDV (.m2t) movie clips

    I just ran into this problem myself. I know some older versions of Ubuntu support playing back this format as I have a Canon HV20 that natively shoots this format (HDV MiniDV tape). I'm not sure why it won't play back in Lucid.

    Edit (added the following):

    It appears between Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 detection for HDV video was added and now it complains even though it can play in totem.

    It also appears the workaround of just ignoring it complaining does not work for PiTiVi.

    I filed this issue as bug 574050.

    8.04
    Installs gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mpegdemux, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad

    Still does not work.

    -

    Manual install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly allows it to play.

    -----
    9.04
    "MPEG-2 Transport Stream demuxer"

    Installs gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad

    Still does not work.

    -

    Manual install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly allows it to play.

    9.10
    "MPEG-2 Transport Stream demuxer"

    Installs gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad

    -

    "MPEG-2 Video decoder"
    "HDV AUX-V decoder"
    "HDV AUX-A decoder"
    "MPEG-1 Audio decoder"

    Installs gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3, gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly

    -

    "HDV AUX-V decoder"
    "HDV AUX-A decoder"

    no plugins found

    -

    If you ignore the no plugins found on 9.10 it will then play ok.

    no plugins found

    If you ignore the no plugins found on 10.04 it will then play ok, but seems a bit crashy.
