View Full Version : [ubuntu] DVGrab file ending

September 9th, 2010, 04:57 PM
I am using a cannon HV20. No matter what format I pick in dvgrab the file ending is always m2t.

I am trying to get a format that works on a mac and so I want a .dv or quicktime ending.

I am doing the following.

dvgrab -format raw -autosplit -showstatus laborday-
Found AV/C device with GUID 0x00008500014d3a5b
Waiting for HDV...
Capture Started

dvgrab has the smarts to recognise the format of the recording. In this case it is mpeg transport stream. You can then convert it to another codec / container with the appropriate tools.
