I’m trying to run CoreAVC on Linux. The version I’m using is CoreAVC 1.8.0.
But it doesn’t work for footage from Canon’s HF100 or the Panasonic HDC-SD100. It’s stutter as hell if one let it run in interlaced mode, and if you are going to seek within the content, the playback behaves like a slideshow afterwards. Here’s my post I’ve send: See this Post
I’ve also for the schedule of the version 1.8.5. But yet without any answer: See this Post
It’s funny, but if you google for
linux avchd playback
it’s the third hit in Google’s search result. It seems I’m not the only one, who’s looking for a solution.
PS: I’ve posted a (poor) workaround, which works for me right now. I’m using mplayer (svn) without CoreAVC in the living-root atm, but I’m loosing sync. Anybody an idea?
[UPDATE] On 17th of October 2008 CoreCodec published the version 1.8.5 of his CoreAVC decoder.
I will report, if playback of AVCHD footage is possible meanwhile or not.
[UPDATE] At the moment it’s not working at all. I’m getting a Segmentation Fault, if I perform this line:
dshowserver -c CoreAVCDecoder.ax -s 1280x720 -g 09571a4b-f1fe-4c60-9760de6d310c7c31 -b 12 -f 0x34363248 -o 0x30323449
like suggested by the coreavc-for-linux project.
I’ve reported this circumstance at their forum. Let’s see what happens next.
The Segmentation Fault has been fixed by Alen. See here: http://code.google.com/p/coreavc-for-linux/issues/detail?id=62.
Matroska (.mkv) is playing just fine, but AVCHD footage from my camcorder still doesn’t work properly. Read more here. Here’s a preliminary list of affected camcorders. Read here for a workaround.
