@a1ex

Hmm... LINK. Could this be corrected/done in camera in the future? To not mess with channel data offsetting by 128,256,512,1024 in post? This will be temporary solution for post tools or am I missing the basic idea?

Well....
- the link is for new-style DryOS task switching hooks on recent D5 models; it should not impact any functionality (makes the way we are overriding tasks more "unified", adds CPU usage, some error checks, stuff like that)
- these 128,256,512,1024 black level offsets are a LJ92 encoding bug on 6D, that we have no idea how to track down, so I thought it may be a better idea to work around this in post
- the sample DNG files (coming from mlv_dump on steroids) could not be adjusted with exiftool -BlackLevel (but others found out they can be adjusted with -IFD0:BlackLevel)
- the same sample DNG files (coming from mlv_dump on steroids) could not pass dng_validate.exe tests (and that's the bug report for you).
- edit: OP found out he was using an older version, so please disregard.

"Unfortunately, MLRawViewer just locks up my current machine (bringing down the entire operating system), so it's not straightforward for me to play with this code. Otherwise I'd probably maintain this program, to some extent."

@a1ex Then we should avoid it. Is there another player for just viewing MLV files?

Thx a1ex, got it. I'll try to fix 6D case in software, but... I really do not like this ;)


btw, I compiled dng_validate for linux. If someone needs it, it's here. Note: It might require some libs to install.

a1ex said this before @hwdbk made his changes to support losless MLVs. Link is Here. It is not finished thought and needs further development.

Meanwhile you can play MLVs with MLV App for all 3 OSes (Mac, Linux, Win), or use mlvproducer (windows only).

Could you be more precise please? Maybe you can provide a small MLV for debugging as well?

I also continue having problems with MLVApp on both: my laptop Lenovo 3000 N200 with 4 GB of RAM and my desktop PC - QuadCore Q6600, MoBo DP35DP, 8 GB DDR2 RAM, GTX750 Ti GPU.  On both of them I have Win7x64 Ultimate running.  MLV_dump on steroids works on both PCs fine.

I tried the 64-bit version 013 of MLVApp on both of them.  When I click on the software icon it starts normally and opens the main window.  When I try to import an MLV file, regardless of its size, resolution, bitrate and/or compression, the software crashes and the message "MLVApp.exe has stopped working" appears.  I also tried the 32-bit version and observed the same behavior.

Interestingly, the software works flawlessly on a different laptop of a friend of mine who has exactly the same version of Win7x64 installed.   His laptop is a Dell Precision M6600 with i7 2720 and 16 GB of RAM.  Could it be that MLVApp requires at least 16 GB of RAM to work properly?

I'm running it w/o issues in Win10x64 on my 5 year old Asus Zenbook laptop with 4gb mem.

Edit: And in virtual machine with Windows7 x64 (4GB) under Vmware ESXi @ my work.

Upgraded from Windows 7 64-bit  to Windows 10 64-bit. Maybe is that the problem? Where I can download mlv__dump on steroids again? To try again right away and send you photos in case it don't work.

Hm... strange. I have MLVApp running on Win7 64bit Core i3 4GB RAM, Win8.1Pro 64bit Core i7 8GB RAM, OSX 10.9 16GB RAM, 2x OSX 10.11 8 & 24GB RAM and Ubuntu 12.04LTS VM without that problem. It is bad, that Windows never tells the reason for a crash...
Do you activate "AMaZE Cached"? This crashes Windows 32bit versions on my systems.

@masc True is that MLV app is not the one crashing, is mlv_dump on steroids. I'm having other problems that can't be reproduced with MLV app, so I can't use it anymore for extracting, just for playing mlv files. Can you help where to locate mlv_dump on steroids? I can't find it to download again...

I think I'm confused here, I'm looking for an archive called "batch_mlv_in-out" to download it so I can retest it using mlv batch process and darkframe folders, all of that. Im not making myself clear.

Ok, you can replace it with the one provided in the link. Just rename mlv_dump_os.exe to mlv_dump.exe and replace the one inside. If you still have issues please post about them in the other forum post.

Thanks! Then I'm renaming and replacing to test. Can you please tell me the title name of the other forum post?
