Ubuntu Multimedia :: Convert Any Video Files To Any Format?
Jan 4, 2011
I just wanted to know what people think is the best video encoding program. I want to be able to convert any video files to any format, mostly x264, avi that sort of stuff. I used AVS encoder in windows.
I emailed myself a video. I took with my ipod touch, and its in .mov format which ubuntu doesn't support. I have an app called arista transcoder (a little slow, but very handy), which, for some reason, isn't able to convert the video. its strange because I was able to convert a few other videos from my ipod (same format) into .avi files last week. Arista says something about an unrecognized media type.
I am looking for a video converter that will convert AVI into DVD format to burn a disc. I had a program called convert X for windows 7 and with that I was able to make menu's for the DVD and when it finished converting, it would burn it to a disc.
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:
does anyone know of any FOSS program I can use to convert HD X.264 MKV video files to AVI or WMV without loss of quality. I wish to stream these videos from my linux box (yes u can do that via ushare)to my xbox 360 but unfortunaly it wont play MKV files.
I am trying to convert a mpg video file to mxf container format using ffmpeg by follwing command. ffmpeg -y -i INPUT.mpg -s 640x480 -vcodec mjpeg -b 5Mb -minrate 4Mb -maxrate 6Mb -bufsize 3Mb -an -f mxf OUTPUT.mxf
I am trying to convert a video file to mxf container format using ffmpeg.But not able to achieve the goal.This the command which i used.ffmpeg -i smirnoff_edlp2ok4.mpg -vcodec mpeg2video -b 450k -acodec libmp3lame -ab 64k -ar 48000 -y op.mxf
I use Linux for my everyday work but lately I've been faced with a trouble when I send out file printouts from my browser from my Debian system to (normally) window$ systems, where they are not readable. Is there a way for me to convert the postscript files into pdf format? Most window$ users will have some sort of pdf reader installed but I am still to find one user that has Ghostscript and Ghostview installed. where can I find the TTF fonts that are shipped with every standard installation of Debian? I'm sometimes forced to print files through a windows system and because the fonts loaded in that system are not the ones I use in Debian (URW Gothic L, as an example) I end up having my official documents disfigured. If I can carry around with me a ready-to-install fonts package I can get over this obstacle.
Recently, my hard drive crashed. I was using XP and do not have my install discs (lost them 3 moves ago...). I make backups regularly and only lost roughly 3 days worth of material (nothing really important). On my other PC I've been running linux forever. I don't need windows and have installed a new HD in the PC and put fedora on there w/ no issues. Now historical email. There seems to be many workarounds for getting dbx files to mbox inside windows, but how would I accomplish this task without a windows install anywhere (Virtual installs are out as I do not have any install discs for windows anyways).
After a quick search, I only found one possible solution (in perl) and am looking for something that I don't have to program my self. I am a programmer by trade but have never programmed in perl (c++, FORTRAN, matlab, python... yes) and at this point, don't feel like learning new syntexs for this one problem (python has been my goto scripting language for everything linux...). Also if anyone has a link to a c++ lib(link to documentation?) that does the same thing... I might take a look at that and make a gui for it... then release it for others...
I'd like to write a bash script to convert all of the .mpg files in a directory to .avi files. The ffmpeg part of this produces the kind of file that I want, but rather than changing the name of the input and output files each time that I run the script, I'd like to automate it. I've tried this script, but I get an error "command not found".
#!/bin/bash cd /home/michael_s/golf_temp 1 for i in 'ls *.mpg' ; do /usr/bin/ffmpeg.exe -i /home/michael_s/golf_temp/"$i" -map 0:0 -map 0:1 -pass 1 -vcodec mpeg4 -vtag xvid -f avi -b 1100k -vol 384 -mbd rd -s 640x480 -aspect 4:3 -acodec libmp3lame -ac 2 -ab 128k /home/michael_s/golf_temp/"$i".avi

I been looking on Google to convert videos to mp3 audio and all I get is just a video conversion from one format to another and some things I installed just get error messages so I took them back off. Anyone know the proper syntax in Mencorder to convert a video just to audio? Or any other program I can use that won't cause this much trouble?
just wondering is there a simple script to convert datetime to UTC format. I have been searching different forums but most answers are for converting UTC to datetime. For example what is a simple command/script to convert todays datetime to UTC format i.e. '2009-10-09 11:47:59'.
