[RELEASE] Video Channels Creator - Custom CIA videos

Post by Rinnegatamante » Sat Apr 02, 2016 5:25 pm

Video Channels Creator v.1.3
by Rinnegatamante

Description
Video Channels Creator is a *64Bit Windows-only (for now) PC program which will make you to create your own CIA videos easily and comfortable.
It supports any video format thanks to ffmpeg decoder and can handle correctly a large amount of videos.
Player is not tested on O3DS, it will probably have lower framerate, but on N3DS it runs pretty good with anime videos and similars (23-27 fps) and probably also with normal videos (30 fps).

How does it work?
Basically, Video Channels Creator will produce an homebrew running lpp-3ds core which will load a video encoded as JPGV video from romfs. This will allows to store the video inside the CIA file and so it allows users to have infinite custom videos on Home Menu.

Video Preview
A little video preview can be found here: http://rinnegatamante.it/custom_cia.mp4

Usage Instructions
1) Download the homebrew and extract it in a folder.
2) Open files folder and place here a video file in whatever format you want.
3) (Optional) Replace icon.png, banner.png and audio.wav with your own files (Wav files must be 3 seconds or less).
4) Start build.bat script and follow screen instructions
5) Profit!

Tips & Warnings
- Unique_ID allowed range is 0x0 to 0xFFFFFF.
- Cinema Mode will reduce battery usage (due to screen backlight power-off for bottom screen).
- Cinema Mode will slightly boost framerate (due to bottom screen rendering disabling).
- You found a bug or you have suggestions to improve the tool? Just make a reply to this thread explaining your report!

Version 1.3 released. A minor update that brings the so long requested 3D videos support and some minor bugfixes/additions.
3D videos must be separated in two videos (one for left channel and one for right channel).
In the future i'll probably add the possibility to directly encode side-to-side videos but for now, just split the videos in two separated videos and then use the tool to convert it to a CIA file.

Changelog:

Code: Select all

- Bugfix in build_jpgv. Now if an error occurs, jpgv file will be always saved.
- Added 3D Videos support.
- Added possibility to set custom title and author to the CIA video.
