DVDec for Matlab

David Moore <>

DVDec is a tool for Matlab that allows raw Digital Video (DV) files, produced by most digital camcorders, to be read and processed in Matlab. I have tested it under the Linux version of Matlab. Its usage is quite simple: DV files can be opened and their frames read sequentially in the same way that still images are read into Matlab. The timecode for each frame is also recovered. There is no support for reading the audio content of the DV file, although such support would be easy to add. DVDec uses libdv for the underlying decoding.
