Support for RAW Xvid video in mkvmerge
Original reporter: micr… AT chel…
It seems that mkvmerge doesn't support RAW Xvid video at the moment. When encoding an AVI file with MEncoder to Xvid and then dumping the video to RAW Xvid, mkvmerge reports that it has detected an unsupported type.... my commands for dumping the video are
mencoder file.avi -nosound -ovc copy -of rawvideo -o output.cmp
mkvmerge reports the following when trying to import the RAW file
Error: The file '/home/microchip/output.cmp' has unknown type. Please have a look at the supported file types ('mkvmerge --list-types') and contact the author Moritz Bunkus email@example.com if your file type is supported but not recognized properly.
MP4Box from gpac has no problem importing the RAW stream. Is it possible to add support for RAW Xvid streams to mkvmerge?
