Can .REC streamed video files used in Topfield digital TV PVR's (Personal Video Recorders) be converted in dBpoweramp Video Converter? VideoLAN's VLC media player can play them as can a freeware Java based player, but it would be cool if dBpoweramp Video Converter was able to convert them to .MP4 or .AVI or something playable on a PC.
On a related topic, the "Video Converter" advertising page on the Illustrate website says: "Convert 8K, 4K and HD to mp4 (h264, h265), Windows Media Video, Webm (VP9), Apple Quicktime (mov), AVI to name a few.", only catch is it doesn't name what the others are, so perhaps a list somewhere defining which formats it can handle. Thanks.

Please upload one of your .rec files to dropbox and provide a link, I will test.

The list of decoders is shown in the Control Centre >> Codecs 'List / Options'

Sorry for the delay. I have sent you a private message containing the direct URL for a sample .REC file for you to play with. Thanks. :)

If you rename the file .ts they will convert, however a few errors might be reported which can be ignored.
