Changing file extension on a file with DV codec
on Mar 28, 2017 at 5:34:55 pm

Hey guys,

Not sure if this is the right place for me to post this question so please feel free to point me in the right direction if not.

I've captured a few Mini DV tapes using Vidcap and it's output .AVI files with a DV codec, however my client is looking for .MOV files with a DV codec. Am I right in thinking I can just change the file extension to .MOV and they'll work the same way or do I need to physically convert everything to .MOV?

Thanks!

You need to change the container, I think it's possible.
I used ffmpeg before to convert .mov to mp4 (actually just changed the container format, the vide stream left untouched).
I would try something like
ffmpeg -i dv.avi -acodec: copy -vcodec: copy output.mov
(Did not test)

Best regards
