Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ffmpeg To Resample Audio But Leave Video Unchanged?

Mar 1, 2010

I'm trying to write a bash script for gpodder to automatically convert video podcasts to play on my media player. I'm using ffmpeg for the conversions (compiled myself with all codecs enabled). I'd like to avoid resampling the video or audio whenever it's unnecessary but ffmpeg seems to want to resample my video even if I only give it audio parameters to change.For example I have a test video with the following parameters:

Stream #0.0(eng): Video: h264, yuv420p, 640x480, 1394 kb/s, 29.97 fps, 29.97 tbr, 2997 tbn, 5994 tbc
Stream #0.1(eng): Audio: aac, 44100 Hz, stereo, s16, 159 kb/s

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ffmpeg / Avc / Mp4 - Video Not Working On HTC G1?

I'm having trouble to find the right ffmpeg options to encode a video that can be read on a htc G1 cell phone. I have used several codecs and formats but none is working.

I have followed these instruction to install ffmpeg and x264 [URL]

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Batch Convert Audio In Video Files?

May 8, 2010

a movie is encoded with AC3 in 6 channel audio, what I get out is all of the sounds except for voices, which in 5.1 would be sent to the center channel. What I usually do is fire up avidemux and convert the audio to mp3 stereo, as converting to a 5.1 format usually ends up with a very odd sound (like running everything through an echo chamber). What I'd like to do is run a script to batch-convert these files from AC3 to MP3. The video format may vary, but they are usually XVID. I am comfortable at the command line, but I am not well-versed in audio/video tool terms. I don't need anything extravagant, I just want something that works. Heck, even if it is done one at a time, having a shell script that I can use to simply type:

tool.sh inputfile.avi outputfile.avi

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ffmpeg Audio Merge With Video Merge

Feb 22, 2011

I am using ffmpeg for merge wav files to a mov video. My doing is below

1. First extract audio (wav file) from video
2. Create wav file from mp3 track 1
3. Create wav file from mp3 track 2
4 Merge extract audio from video with track 1 and track2.
Now finally create a new video with original video's video stream and merged audio stream.

Process is working. However final video is 3-4 times greater than original one. I want that final video should be near about size of original video. As I understand, all three wav files (created from ) make video larger.

Example commands i using is as below:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Convert Ogg Files To MP3 With Sound Converter?

I've had no trouble with it until attempting to add new music to my banshee music library and ipod. I've copied the music into my music folder and tried to convert to MP3 with sound converter but it keeps popping up with the warning "Cannot overwrite source files". I tried to convert the files to MP3 directly from the cd but that didn't work either.

Software :: FFMPEG Encoding WMV3 Audio And Video To FLV

Feb 19, 2010

I'm trying to encode a wmv file to flv with ffmpeg. The video codec is WMV3 and the audio codec is wmap (Windows Media Audio Professional). The command I use is:

/usr/bin/ffmpeg -i <input file>.wmv -s 640x350 -b 1024k -r 25 -ar 44100 -ac 2 -y <output file>.flv

FFmpeg version 0.5-svn17737+3:0.svn20090303-1ubuntu6, Copyright (c) 2000-2009 Fabrice Bellard, et al.
configuration: --enable-gpl --enable-postproc --enable-swscale --enable-x11grab --extra-version=svn17737+3:0.svn20090303-1ubuntu6 --prefix=/usr --enable-avfilter --enable-avfilter-lavf --enable-libgsm --enable-libschroedinger --enable-libspeex --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis --enable-pthreads --disable-stripping --disable-vhook --enable-libdc1394 --enable-shared --disable-static .....

Stream mapping:

Stream #0.1 -> #0.1
[wmv3 @ 0xb32c00]Extra data: 8 bits left, value: 0
Unsupported codec (id=86056) for input stream #0.1

As you can probably see the audio codec is not supported. Is there a way to encode WMV3+wmap with ffmpeg or any other tool in Linux? Windows Media Encoder in Windows is able to encode such files to a supported codec. For example: WMV3+WMA2/WMV2+WMA2, I could then encode it in Linux. I'm trying to find a way to directly encode WMV3+wmap in Linux.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ffmpeg To Convert HD .mkv To .avi?

Jan 13, 2010

I've got a bunch of HD files in .mkv format that I want to convert to a format that the 360 will read (currently just trying .avi files) so I can stream the media to my xbox360. I'd rather avoid transcoding the entire file, so I tried unpacking the .mkv file into audio and video (and subtitle if necessary) and repacking said file into avi using ffmpeg. The repacking is where I am having the problem. Here's the commands I tried at first (it might look familiar):


mkvextract tracks file.mkv 1:temp_video.avi 2:temp_audio.ogg 3:temp_sub.srt
ffmpeg -i temp_video.avi -i temp_audio.ogg -vcodec copy file.avi

However, I keep getting this annoying error:


Error while opening codec for output stream #0.1 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height Where stream #0.1 is the output audio stream to the .avi file. I think I have narrowed it down to the fact that the input streams are all 6 channel (5.1 surround sound) which mp2 doesn't support (the ffmpeg audio default) so I did this instead:


ffmpeg -i temp_video.avi -i temp_audio.ogg -vcodec copy -acodec libmp3lame file.avi

I'm still getting the same error, but when I use


ffmpeg -i temp_video.avi -i temp_audio.ogg -vcodec copy -acodec libmp3lame -ac 2 file.avi

to change the sound to stereo it works. Problem is I'd like to keep my media in surround sound. Any thoughts on how to get all 6 channels in the new mp3 file? I'm fairly certain that mp3s support 5.1. And after some messing around, I haven't found that my ffmpeg can transcode audio format from 5.1 back to 5.1. So since (I think) the 360 can play .ac3 files I decided to just copy both the video and audio file to the .avi file sans transcoding using


ffmpeg -i temp_video.avi -i temp_audio.ogg -vcodec copy -acodec copy file.avi

however now about halfway through, I run into this error:


NULL @ 0x22f3a00]error, non monotone timestamps 62562 >= 62562

av_interleaved_write_frame(): Error while opening file I can't seem to find any solution to this problem anywhere online, does anyone know how to get around this? I'd prefer to use ffmpeg for this if possible. (so I can write a script and just attack an entire directory at once) For what it's worth, I'm using the latest ffmpeg in the ubuntu (karmic) default repositories.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Using Ffmpeg To Convert DTS To AC3?

Jul 28, 2010

I have a .mkv container with proper video (h264/~6000kbps) and audio (DTS/1500kbps). For some reason I want to have similar quality but with another video and audio codecs. For video it goes well and ffmpeg is very helpful here, no problems. Also, I want DTS to become AC3/320-448kbps/5-6 channels. Commands like this:


ffmpeg -i in.dts/mkv -acodec ac3 -ac 5 -ab 448k out.ac3

gives me not proper reordered sound in channels, so I hear center on the right, music on the left, etc.

Is there a way to make that properly with ffmpeg?

Also, I have a question about multi core encoding cause I have a quad processor. Ffmpeg seems not using them in all the way, I get something like 25% of CPU usage while encoding. Command -threads, even using the h264, does not make any extra load of cpu.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Convert .avi To .mov With Ffmpeg?

Jul 29, 2010

I'm making little animated bits in GIMP with the gap package. I can only get GIMP to encode the files as .avi. Problem here is that when I try to use any converter, it compresses 80MB files down to 1MB-4MB files and, unsurprisingly, the video quality is terrible. WinFF and ffmpeg (via terminal) output at a drastically reduced size. Is there some way to keep the files big/big-ish? I don't want to lose any detail.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: FFMPEG - FLV To MP3 Batch Convert

ffmpeg -i filename.flv -sameq -acodec libmp3lame -f asf filename.mp3

I have inserted all the filenames individually into the script but when I ran it I got too many errors and i was wondering if someone knew a quicker way to do it e.g. a script that would batch convert all .flv files in that folder to .mp3 format.
