users of libdv.
Thanks for the advice, but I was hoping for a bit less cryptic answer !
What I found was generally:
- read in a full frame
- call dv_parse_audio_header()
- use functions like dv_get_frequency()
However, a couple of things:
- dv_parse_audio_header() appears to be in libdv and working, however it is not defined in the header file.
- there do not seem to be functions to get the signedness, endianess or interleaf (interleaved/non-interleaved) for the audio. Are these values fixed in the dv standard ?
+ 1 other point, I was presuming that dv_get_samples() would return the sample size in bits, however it appears to return the number of samples per frame (which can of course be calculated as frequency/fps, so not very useful).
Should one assume that there are 16 bits per sample (or 20, 24 or 32).
Sorry if my questions appear stupid, but I know nothing about dv format - I am approaching it from simply a programmatical point of view.
