VLC can decode this container.
The module name to use at the command line is dump.

A special codec used mainly for debugging. This saves the input as a file (specified by demuixdump-file), without decoding it.

This is a way to "decode" input to VLC. To output data without a container, use dummy.

For example, saving the raw input of an mp3 shoutcast stream can be done with:

% vlc :demux=dump :demuxdump-file=output.mp3

Module options

  • demuxdump-file (file name)
    File to output data, default: "stream-demux.dump"
  • demuxdump-append (boolean)
    Append data to file. Set as true to append data, or false (default) to overwrite the file with the new data.
