I have downloaded a few movies that uses the ratdvd codec
How can I change it to dvd files?
or, directly to xvid / divx files?
I arch, you arch, he arch, she arch, we arch, they arch...
I've read somewhere that it is possible to use unzip to extract .ratDVD files. Maybe that helps and you'll get some files you can use with mplayer, vlc or the like...
Ok, out of curiosity I just tried this myself with a ratDVD testfile. Unzipping gave a warning, but worked:
smoon:/tmp % file unknown_AC3VS.ratDVD unknown_AC3VS.ratDVD: Zip archive data, at least v1.0 to extract
smoon:/tmp % unzip unknown_AC3VS.ratDVD Archive: unknown_AC3VS.ratDVD extracting: Version.xml warning: unknown_AC3VS.ratDVD appears to use backslashes as path separators extracting: AV_TS/VTS_01_1.XVO extracting: AV_TS/VTS_01_1.VSI extracting: AV_TS/VTS_01_0.IFO extracting: AV_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO extracting: AV_TS/StreamData.xml
smoon:/tmp % file AV_TS/* AV_TS/StreamData.xml: XML AV_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO: Video manager, v10 AV_TS/VTS_01_0.IFO: Video title set, v10 AV_TS/VTS_01_1.VSI: data AV_TS/VTS_01_1.XVO: MPEG sequence, v2, program multiplex
Trying to play the .XVO file with mplayer at least gave me sound. The video, however, did not work:
Playing AV_TS/VTS_01_1.XVO. MPEG-PS file format detected. MPEG: FATAL: EOF while searching for sequence header. Video: Cannot read properties.
I'm not sure what kind of video data that is, but maybe you somehow manage to get it to play.
