I've not even seen those startup videos in years...Yea. For what I know, they are only in the WON version of the game. Not sure though, I don't have them anymore.
I did some testing with ffmpeg and WON HL (126.96.36.199) and found:
Video Format : Cinepak Codec ID : cvid Width : 640 pixels Height : 480 pixels Frame rate : 15.000 FPS Audio Format : PCM Format settings : Unsigned Sampling rate : 22.05 kHz Bit depth : 8 bits
cinepakencoding works (and is incredibly slow to encode, and has terrible compression. 1991 technology at work!)
ffmpeg.exe -i source_video.mp4 -c:v cinepak -c:a pcm_u8 -vf scale=640:480 sierra.avi
pcm_s32lealso work for the audio codec, instead of
pcm_u8. The number in the codec gives you the bit depth of the audio.
pcm_s64ledoes not work. For sampling rate, looks like 44khz audio works as well.
ffmpeg.exe -i source_video.mp4 -c:v cinepak -c:a pcm_s32le -vf scale=640:480 -ar 44100 sierra.avi
Despite the fact that the Don Davis music was erased from the video...
ffmpeg.exe -i source_video.mp4 -c:v cinepak -c:a pcm_s16le -vf scale=640:480 sierra.avi
I thought that tribute works are not prosecutedThe response from media companies depends on who in the company notices it, what company it is, what material you use, how you use it, and what you are making. Some are even happy to see fans remix their material. They don't normally -prosecute-. They send emails/messages requesting you take it down. They contact YouTube, ModDB etc. asking that they take it down. It's usually only when people don't comply that they take legal action. Having that logo there might just make them think you are trying to present this as an officially endorsed product, and that might make them more inclined to make you take your mod off the web.
