Offline Descrambler 2.50 released

A new release of "Offline Descrambler 2" version 2.50 is ready to be downloaded from as usual, with this changes:

+ Added compatibility for FFdeCSA up to 128 bits in parallelism.
! Fixed some MDAPI bugs.
+ Added "Apply key change after X ECMs" for keys that arrives a bit faster than in real time. To disconnect the feature and act as old Offline Descrambler versions set it to zero.
+ Added FFdeCSA technology. Thanks to Altx (Windows DLL port) and fatih89r for creating the algorithm. Really impressive. The implement in Offline Descrambler 2 is not optimal as it has been added as a "patch" and some steps are not optimized (too many memory copies) but it is in fact around 500% faster than classical.
+ Added speed relative to real time in the status bar and stream time offset indicator. (They could be not exact, but very approximative).

How could I set a PMT PID in OfflineDecoder.ini?
I discovered string for Audio, Video and ECM, but not for PMT :)

You do not need PMT at all, simply check the ECM, audio and video and disconnect any kind of AutoECM in your plugin and it should work. If it does not work please let me know the plugin you are trying to use.

If OD does not discover the PMT PID it is not there in the first 10 MB +/- so quite sure it has not been grabbed.

Hi Joshy,

OD 2.50 works great. My PC is not fast enough to record and decrypt HD online at high bit rates. Your program is a life saver. Now my PC can do the job off-line at its own pace.

Thanks for this great piece of work.

Is there a "HOW TO"??
I just don't get it working correctly.
I would like to descramble TS recordings with a smartcard and PMCAM.
I think it's a great tool! (if I get it working)

With PMCAM it must work directly if the .TS stream is not decrypted and have a valid ECM PID inside.

As many people seens to have problems about .TS streams I will write a little application in order to show you if a given .TS stream is valid to be decoded offline.

Some applications record a .TS stream but it is an already descrambled version, wrongly descrambled as the keys are not valid, but this process removes information needed to perform the offline descrambling.

Can you post the latest source code for this?

I'm working in 2.56 since a few months, but my spare time is quite limited since... and also I'm working in the 3.0 version written from scratch. I hope to publish it and the source code quite soon.

If you are interested in something in special in the code I can give you the code piece that you need or a description about it. For better communications use my email address found in the documentation of OD 2.50

Hi, It keeps outputting 0 bytes for .ts files. I am using all the plugins mentioned along with ndscam. What am i doing wrong? what do i need to check/un check?

Hi JoshyFun!
Thank you for your great piece of work.
I think it could help me a lot recording TS!

I'm facing an issue using Hadu CCcam.
I've just recorded a stream using DVBDream and checking all possible PIDS options (including ECM obviously).
But when I try to send stream to Hadu it shows "Looking for PAT" and then "No frame (survey)", so Offline Descrambler doesn't write anything.
Thank you for your precious help.
