v0.42 includes a new stream format. Thanks to Photoman and SatBible for the samples.

Thanks mips!  I ran over 300Gb through 0.42 yesterday. From TS dump files and live through pipes and not a single hiccup.  Seems pretty solid!  There is a limit of 32 substreams right?

Since there are new capabilities added to this software, I wonder if you've ever looked at the PBS data on 12120 H 30000 on AMC21?  It would be really nice if a way to generate video from that stream. 
   I just tried the new version 042, but the file generated didn't play.
The content of this mux seems to vary a bit.  Right now, it's playing one big ~58 Mbps UDP PID that ipcleaner says only has one substream.
I have a file recorded if it is of any interest.

Thanks for the feedback. You are correct about the 32 substream limit. It's easy to change though. How about 128?

I have a few samples from that mux and I've succeeded in playing back the substream once or twice but the stream format is only partially supported ATM. Another recording sample would be useful. Thanks.

32 is plenty for the stuff I process live, but when I was dumping TS files I found it would hit that limit quite frequently. About a half hour was all I could dump at a time.  Since most people dump TS files a few more would probably make it work better.

Ok, limit increased in v0.42c. Let me know if you still hit the limit. Thanks.

It'll always be possible to hit the limit on that, just a matter of me managing my TS dumps better.  The TS dump I started out with was over 200GB.  Thought it was odd that there were only 32 substreams in all that.  Started cutting up the file and after hitting 32 again a few times with 10Gb chunks I finally realized there was a hard limit.

By popular demand, "-sub=all" is now supported in v0.43. As it suggests, it extracts all the substreams in a single pass.

Because of significant changes to the command-line (see post in software thread), existing scripts will need to be updated to work with this version.

Sweet!  Almost don't need a script anymore.

Please add the "-sub=none" cliffnote to the IPCLEANER command line help (i.e. when you type IPCLEANER by itself at a dos prompt) as I noticed it was missing from that help summary and I had to refer to the readme to remember how in version 43 to look at the list of sub streams without writing out the subs.

I think that line should look something like:

-sub=N   Substream number to extract (default is ALL)
             (use -sub=NONE in conjunction with -subinfo for substream list)


Thanks.

I'm finding I don't have to dump anything to a file anymore with this new version. It's handling even the high bitrate streams live through a single pipe. What I've done with all the little non-video files that get spit out is to just add a routine at the end of my script to test the files and then either rename them to .mpg, .asf etc or delete them.  Renaming is a good idea as IPcleaner will still overwrite any files you have laying around if you restart it on the same pid.

Thought you may find it handier to just do a process like that rather than  run through the whole -subinfo list.

P.S. Looks like the 128 sub stream limit is still there, so probably also need to add a routine to test for a file named *sub128.ts then have it kill off IPcleaner and restart the process.

Good catch, thanks. It will be added in the next version. I'll rephrase it differently though since I don't want to imply -sub=none is required with -subinfo. Personally, I like to use -sub=all with -subinfo since I get everything in a single pass. Then, I just delete whichever output files I don't want.

I know that's not what you were suggesting, but I'll change the default output extension from .ts to .bin since .ts can be misleading (in many cases, the output file is not a transport stream).

Concerning renaming the output files, that probably arises from using a pipe (or reusing a single filename for capture). If each capture uses a different filename (e.g. the filename includes the date/time), it would be unlikely that the output filenames would overwrite each other since they are based on the input filename (each input filename being unique, the output filenames should be unique too).

-subinfo will now warn you if the substream limit is reached. I can foresee scalability issues (performance and memory usage) if I significantly increase or completely eliminate this limit, so capping it was the easy way out until I get to it. I could increase it some more, but I guess whatever I set it to will never be enough when processing very large amounts of data.

I assume this pipe talk is linux only?  Is there something in Windows that will allow live or near live viewing?
