NAME

pgmtoy4m - Convert mpeg2dec pgm and pgmpipe output to YUV4MPEG2

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

pgmtoy4m [options]

DESCRIPTION

pgmtoy4m repacks the PGM output from mpeg2dec into YUV4MPEG2 4:2:0p. No actual changes to the data are made. The data is unpacked from the quasi-PGM format and placed in YUV4MPEG2 format with the specified sample aspect, frame rate and field order. Output must be either to a pipe or a file, leaving stdout as a terminal will elicit an error and the program will exit.

OPTIONS

pgmtoy4m accepts the following options:
-v num Set verbosity level. (default: 0)
-h Print a usage summary and exit.
-i t|b|p
  Set the interlacing mode. Top field first (t), bottom field first (b) or progressive/none (p). (default: t)
-a sar Set the sample aspect ratio. (default: 10:11)
-r frame rate
  Set the frame rate. (default: 30000:1001)

EXAMPLES

mpeg2dec -s -o pgmpipe file.mpg | pgmtoy4m -a 10:11 -r 24000:1001 -i b | yuvplay

mpeg2dec -s -o pgm file.mpg cat *.pgm | pgmtoy4m -r 30000:1001 -i t | yuvplay

NOTES

This program is specifically designed to work with the output of mpeg2dec and is NOT a general PGM (NetPBM) tool!

From the introduction in the source file:

 * Note: mpeg2dec uses a variation of the PGM format - they’re really not
 * "Grey Maps" but rather a catenation of the 420P data (commonly called
 * "YUV").    The type is P5 ("raw") and the number of rows is really
 * the total of the Y’, Cb and Cr heights.   The Cb and Cr data is "joined"
 * together.  After the Y’ rows you have 1 row of Cb and 1 row of Cr per
 * "row" of PGM data.

* NOTE: You MAY need to know the field order (top/bottom field first), * sample aspect ratio and frame rate because the PGM format makes * none of that information available!
