Convert PMF to AVI Tutorial
Here's my little contribution to the forum.
I know so many ppl have said this is not possible, either they're liars or didn't really look into it. There's no need for RemoteJoyLite if it's a PMF integrated video that you want from game. By doing this -of course- you will have the highest quality possible, since none of these process decomposes or compresses the original video... Currently I'm looking for a solution to extract the audio as well. Meanwhile, enjoy converting sony's pmf videos to Windows AVI format
Things you need before you begin.
1. 'mplayer.exe' & 'mencoder.exe'
____ mplayer.rar (7.97 MB)
-------------place 'mplayer.exe' and 'mencoder.exe' in the root of your hardrive : 'C:\'
2. VirtualDub -1.6.17
____ VirtualDub-1.6.17.zip (1001.6 KB)
3. A PMF video file. Here's a short clip from Final Fantasy Dissidia just so you try it out
____ file.pmf (4.73 MB)
------- place it in the root of your hardrive aswell and make sure it's named file.pmf
You should now have the following files under C:/
Lets begin with the process
1. Go to 'Run' and type in "cmd".
Type cd C:\ and press enter. Type or paste the following line and press enter.
----- mplayer file.pmf -dumpvideo
After that, Paste or type the following line and press enter:
____ mencoder.exe stream.dump -ovc raw -noskip -ofps 29.97 -o file2.avi
It may take a minute or 2 depending on the file size:
When it's done you can exit, and there should be a new file in C:/ named file2.avi
2. Open VirtualDub.exe
----1. Drag file2.avi into VirtualDub
Ah yes you see it don't you! Almost done
----2. File/ Save as AVI
