WOOT....
Got it working.... made an executable of it, here it is.....

**** Beta *****
http://www.4shared.com/file/dXq9pdJU/Dpg4x_111_i486_Lupu.html
8.2Mb - Compiled in Ubuntu - dir2petted in Lupu

All this needs is mplayer, which is installed by default in Lupu.

This is the DPG for X (dpg4x) project ("dpg4x")
This project was registered on SourceForge.net on Jan 31, 2010, and is described by the project team as follows:
DPG for X (dpg4x) is a program that allows the easy creation of DPG video files on Linux. It may work on other POSIX like OS as well. DPG is a special format of MPEG-1 video specifically for playback on a Nintendo DS.

Please do extensive testing, thanks.
Paul

Checked the dependencies on a bare Lupu install....


Note: Not Include yet...

iconv ( 2.9 ) - necessary if you want to change the encoding for subtitles.

Thanks!

I am running Lucid 5.1-003.

I loaded your PET and fed it an AVI file.

It looked as though it was going to run then stalled.

The mouse pointer changed to a watch and I could move it around but nothing I clicked on would respond.

I had to do a CTRL-Backspace and the "xwin".

I will try rebooting in case the install failed to pick up something it needed or there was a memory collision or ???

EDIT: Sorry, was occupied for a few hours. After the reboot, with nothing else open, I tried again with the same result. Perhaps there is something present on your computer, as a result of your work in developing this, that is not present in a mostly-default Lucid 5.1-003? It seems odd that it seizes control of the desktop like this.

I had that happen once, with a mp4... but I tried again after a complete reboot, and started it up again... worked fine, the second time.

Run it from console... Dpg4x --- maybe it only errors when run from .desktop file. (JWM problem) - At least if run from console you can see any errors it spits out.

EDIT: Confirm the bug in JWM when running from Menu. Either run from console or switch to IceWM and use it from menu there.... also can confirm that .flv's works fine...

Try again, please edoc....

It does run fine in Lucid 5.1 from rxvt.

It will not run from X or rxvt in Fatdog64. I don't know why. Oddly it is in /usr/bin/ but the error says it cannot find it there -- even when I open rxvt in that folder!

The problem is that the DPG4 format will not run on his DS using that Moon-something interface app he has.

I have insisted that he talk to the DS forum and get a definite answer as to what form of DPG file will definitely work on his DS with that Moon-something app -- so as not to waste your time chasing a shadow.

Standing by for good data to forward you ... Smile

ok edoc..

Yes he does need to find out exactly what specs this Dpg format is...

This Dpg4x does 0 through to 4....
also Dpg4x has extra configuration options to set that under >> Video, Audio, Subtitles.

Please change topic to [SOLVED] if Dpg4x is successfully encoding Dpg2 for your Nintendo!

Thanks Paul

It works(YESH! 83): Somewhat low-res, but I assume that's the footage and not the converter. Speaking of, it still won't work via desktop, only via console...

If you can identify specific bugs you should report them at sourceforge.

About as specific as I can get: if it(the file being converted)'s bigger than about 40MB, the whole computer crashes. Also, it only runs in Lucid...

Well, that's probably not a bug, just a dependency issue.

Here's the error I'm getting from the RXVT:



What do I have to do to fix this?
