The first line of the framefile
The first line of the framefile can either be:
- The location of the .m2v/.ogg files relative to the location of the framefile. Therefore, if all three files are in the same place, then the first line should be a period which means that the .m2v/.ogg files are in the same directory as the framefile. This is the most convenient way to do framefiles in my opinion. You could also do things like ../mystuff/ and other trickery, but I really can't see why you'd want to.
- The absolute location of the .m2v/.ogg files. So your first line could be \mpegs\ if your .m2v/.ogg files are inside the \mpegs directory. This is the old behavior of framefiles and it isn't nearly as convenient, but it is still available for backward-compability reasons.
Handling more than one .m2v file
Having only 1 .m2v file and only 1 .ogg file is the most convenient way to go, but that isn't always possible.
Let's say you have three pairs of mpeg video files that contain a video capture from some laserdisc. Let's say that these mpeg video files are located on your C drive in the \files directory and called part1.m2v, part1.ogg, part2.m2v, part2.ogg, part3.m2v, part3.ogg. Let's say that part 1 holds the video for frames 1-1299 of the laserdisc, part2 holds the video for frames 1300-14999 of the laserdisc, and part3 holds the video for frames 15000 until the end of the laserdisc. Then your frame file would look like this:
c:\files\ 1 part1.m2v 1300 part2.m2v 15000 part3.m2v
When using multiple m2v files, you will not be able to RunSeektest. The seektest utility only supports single m2v file configurations.
