    Convert from DVR to MP4

    Hello everybody,

    I would like to convert a vdr video to mp4 file, it does not work:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i test_write1.dvr -vcodec libx264 -preset medium copy -acodec copy outputFile.mp4
    ffmpeg version 0.8.6-6:0.8.6-1ubuntu2, Copyright (c) 2000-2013 the Libav developers
      built on Mar 30 2013 22:20:06 with gcc 4.7.2
    *** THIS PROGRAM IS DEPRECATED ***
    This program is only provided for compatibility and will be removed in a future release. Please use avconv instead.
    [mp3 @ 0x1c76b80] Format detected only with low score of 1, misdetection possible!
    [mp3 @ 0x1c78f20] Header missing
        Last message repeated 448 times
    [mp3 @ 0x1c76b80] Could not find codec parameters (Audio: mp2, 0 channels, s16)
    [mp3 @ 0x1c76b80] Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate
    test_write1.dvr: could not find codec parameters
    file mediainfo:

    Code:
     mediainfo test_write1.dvr 
    General
    Complete name                            : test_write1.dvr
    File size                                : 1.47 MiB
    which codec shall I use??

    Thx in advance

    Looks like a small file, can you post it somewhere so I can have a look?
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Can you convert it with Handbrake? Handbrake can be found in the Software Centre.

    Looks like you have to make an addition to your repositories.

    In Software Sources, under the Other Software tab, click add

    http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/ha...eleases/ubuntu precise

    If you have an install other than precise (12.04), change the last entry to match what you have.

    I am having Ubuntu 13.04, but I dont know 'precise' with what I should change it:
    Code:
    # lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 13.04
    Release:    13.04

    EDIT:

    Code:
    sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list
    
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handbrake-releases/ubuntu raring main
    
    
    sudo apt-get update

    Re: Convert from DVR to MP4

    Try it up to the ubuntu entry, and see what happens. If nothing, add raring instead of precise.

    If none of that works, try searching google for a how-to.
