mpv open the video using another decoder

By (sant527)

I am using mpv:

I have a mp4 file with the following codec details:

ffmpeg -i input.mp4

Stream #0:0(und): Video: h264 (High) (avc1 / 0x31637661), yuv420p, 1280×534 [SAR 801:800 DAR 12:5], 899 kb/s, 24 fps, 24 tbr, 12288 tbn, 48 tbc (default)
handler_name : VideoHandler
Stream #0:1(und): Audio: aac (LC) (mp4a / 0x6134706D), 48000 Hz, stereo, fltp, 140 kb/s (default)

Now i am trying to open the same file decoding in the lavc:rawvideo codec. I want to decode because i found in raw files its easy to navigate frames back and forth smoothly using keyboard shortcuts like “.” and “,”

so i tried:

`mpv –vd=lavc:rawvideo “input.mp4″`

but i dont think it decoded it into rawvideo.

I looking something similar to when i open a file in avidemux, it decodes the file and opens. then the file becomes very smooth to navigate

mp4 files navigation is by key frames. not so good in single frames
