Hi, i tried to convert this wmp format to common video format, since i read somewhere it is actually a *.bik format. So then i change the extension to *.bik and I try demux it using radgametools and vgmtoolbox but got no luck. So i hope someone here can help me to solve this format. here's the smallest sample that i can provide:

Yes, you are right. It's Bink2 format and you can convert it with Rad Video Tools into .AVI container.

My post from the other thread

Only issue is the PC version can't read H.264 files and only Bink 1 & 2. this is because it's using the Bink library for reading videos files. I really wish square used libavcodec or any open source mp4 library, but whatever we can mod I guess.

If someone could theoretically get libavcodec libraries to run alongside this game I bet we can use the PS3 files directly since libavcodec can read both h.264 and aa3 encoded video/audio respectively (well not directly still got to put it in mp4 container :P)


Is it possible to take libavcodec and make FF13 use it to read h264 videos of PS3 version?

Sorry,but i always got "error opening .bk2 file" when opening it with Rad Video Tools.Since its bik2 format, i assume that the extension is *.bk2 not *.bik, thats how i rename the wmp files.Did i do something wrong here?or i must hex editing the bytes so it will "readable" on Rad Video Tools?

Exactly. Remove first 16 bytes. Bink2 video starts with "KB2" mark.

Sorry,got problem again.The files play directly by double click it,but if i open it with rad video tools,it give me an "error opening files" and converting it also give me the same error.Here's a screenshot from sample files that i upload in hex editor after deleting first 16 bytes

This is before deleting the 16 first bytes

I have only AAC and AC3 codecs installed. Nothing else. Actually there is no "work". Open .wmp, delete first 16 bytes, save as .bk2. That's all.
Do you have latest Rad Video Tools?
