The File Receiver plug-in for bitcontrol® Digital TV Link is an input plug-in for one or several files. Currently, the following file formats can be used as video sources:
- MPEG: mpg, mpeg, mp2v, mp1v, m2v, m1v, vob
- AVI: avi, divx
- MP4: mp4, mov, 3gp, 3gpp, 3g2, 3gp2, f4v
- MPEG-TS: ts, mts, m2ts, m2t (Transportstrom)
The File plug-in handles a file like a stream, i.e., it doesn't know the size and other parameters of the file. It simple reads the file byte by byte from the beginning.
The subsequently connected bitcontrol® Audio/Video Decoder automatically detects the file format changes and adapts accordingly, regardless of whether another codec was used or the resolution was changed.
The files in the playlist of the file plug-in can be played in a loop. While playing the playlist, a single file can be enabled or disabled.
