WTV file dumper

Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$50 - $799

Project Description:
WTV is the standard format Windows Media Center writes recording on.

We need a small program that read a WTV file and writes timing info and a hex dump of each component as the file advances. Audio and video is to be skipped - it's everything else (that would be for example the program guide) that we need, and only an hex dump, i.e. you don't need to parse the data, just extract it.

The format is not officially documented but there's some good docs, including:


Most importantly, ffmpeg supports it decently.

Specific things we need:
- Your program must be C/C++ only and it must read the file on its own. You CAN (and probably should) use ffmpeg and any portable C library. You cannot use DirectShow or any other Win only library.
- Sometimes WTV files are encrypted. However, their metadata is not (for example, you can still retrieve the program name or the station name from an encrypted file, even if you cannot decode the video or the audio). It's important that you are able to handle these files.

- Your work will be released as GPL. Feel free to add credits if you want, up to you.
- Because of the previous line, everything you use must be GPL compatible, please don't use proprietary libraries or code.

- Please don't assume that because we're accepting bids up to $799 it's OK to just bid $775. Take some time to analyze the requirements and bid accordingly. Don't overbid. Try not to underbid (even though if you underbid and then as the project progresses it becomes obvious you need to increase the budget we will accept).

Skills required:
C Programming, C++ Programming
