Hey guys ^^

I really want to create a full polish localisation to Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and i have for now translated all texts and textures, but there is some trubles with movies. They are in DDV format and i don't know any way to convert them to avi or some other format and then convert back to DDV. I just want to add subtitles to these movies (or maybe create a dubbing in the future). Can i count on you? It is very important for me and other people from Oddworld community. Please help :)

I saw that a tool "Masher" can play videos in this format from Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus but not from Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. You can download it here viewtopic.php?f=33&t=10524

Here are a few samples: < link expired >

I found a bit of documentation about this format. Maybe it helps:

http://hg.sitedethib.com/oddworld-forma ... mats/ddv.h

#include <stdint.h>
// DDV video format
// Abe's Odyssey seems to have another version of it, referred to as MOIR AKIK
// Abe's Exoddus version

struct DDVVideoHeader {
uint32_t unknown1;
uint32_t video_width;
uint32_t video_height;
uint32_t unknown2;
uint32_t unknown3;
uint32_t keyframe_spacing; // Number of frames between keyframes
struct DDVAudioHeader {
uint32_t audio_freq;
uint32_t unknown1;
struct DDVHeader {
char header[4]; // == "DDV\0"
uint32_t ddv_version;
uint32_t ddv_contains;
uint32_t ddv_fps;
uint32_t ddv_nb_frames;
