I installed this yesterday. Have tried to convert some  sessions into xvid.
I have one problem with the conversion, it only play at half the speed, so I have a session that is 5min when plyaed in amsn, when converted it it 10min.
When I play the session in mimicdecoder thay also play at half the speed. But they dont do it in amsn.

I am using Unbuntu

What can be wrong ?

well, it depends on the timestamp or on whether amsn is using a fixed framerate or uses dynamic framerate... if you don't use dynamic framerate in amsn, then it might be slower/faster depending on how you set the framerate...

To get it to playback perfect in amsn I use dynamic framerate,

When I convert I just choose the session and the click convert to XVID och then decode.

i'm having a problem decoding one of the sessions i recorded.

Mimicdecoder produces:
Code:
mimic2rgb: Couldn't initialize the mimic decoder.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/vic/z/usr/bin/mimicdecoder", line 124, in run
    stdin_pipe.write(block)
IOError: [Errno 32] Broken pipe


And running mimic2rb by itself
Code:
mimic2rgb: Couldn't initialize the mimic decoder.


However, when in aMSN, i can view this session. It does exhibit artifacts for first 3-4 seconds (corrupted video?).

I hacked some code in mimic2rgb to skip over bad frames but apparently that's not enough...needs expert touch Cheesy
Can somebody fix this or any ideas on how i can salvage this session and convert it into something viewable by regular media players (raw or xvid)??

it appears that the beggining of the stream is missing the key or initial frame. consquent frames get their info from it.
after the hacking i did, the first 5-6 frames exhibit strong artifacts  (much more so than previewing in aMSN), and after that the stream is ok, HOWEVER the colors r not right -- too washed out - perhaps saturation or balance or something is off (Colors r ok in aMSN preview).

Any ideas?

Open your terminal and type
Code:
mimicdecoder


You can create a menu launcher by yourself 'cause normally there's none.

I'm a mac user and I don't really understand how this all works.

I have installed Ubuntu  on my mac (using VirtualBox) (latest version as of 29th of May 2009) and it's running perfectly fine. I have downloaded the following files:

Libmimic 1.0.4.
mimictools1.0.1.deb

I have run the installer, but now I'm unable to find how I run the Mimicdecoder application???

Please someone make an easy to understand guide on how to use this.

I've never tried it, but my guess would be to open a terminal and type "mimicdecoder" then press enter.. and you'll get the GUI you need for your conversions...
