I have Ubuntu 9.04 and just installed Sound Converter. I am trying to convert a bunch of .ogg files to mp3 to play on my iPod and it's not working so well. In the Sound Converter options I have is set to convert to high quality mp3. I choose the folder that the files are in and after a moment (slow laptop) Sound Converter populates, I hit 'convert' and it shows that the conversion completes in two seconds. All that it did was create the new folder structure of artist/album but there is nothing in there. Not sure what I am missing. I used Sound Converter before and it worked fine.
I have been having a problem with K9 Copy whenever I try to convert a DVD to MPEG files using the method without encoding, but for some reason lately it seems to be splitting each episode I am trying to rip into about 6 or 7 pieces instead of just one.
I never usually have a problem with this, but for some reason it seems to be doing this whenever I try to rip something. I am running on Obuntu 9.10 and have K9Copy version 2.3.0 installed. I have tried installing several other versions, but it does the same thing with each.
I've got a few videos (MKV) which have AC3 audio, I copied them to my Xoom tablet but AC3 is not supported so there is no sound. Hence I need to convert the audio to MP3, can anyone recommend a good program for doing this?
My sister has a Nintendo DSi that can only play music files if converted to aac format. I could do it on my desktop that runs Windows XP, but unfortunately my tower doesn't have an SD slot to do so. The laptop I'm using does have a slot and is running Ubuntu. The thing is, is there any way I can convert mp3 files to aac so they can play on my sister's DSi?
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'm running ClipBucket on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server x64.Conversion of AVI to FLV works just fine, however when I try to upload an MPG file, it fails. Apparently I should recompile ffmpeg to allow for MPG > FLV conversions.
I have a collection of *.mkv files which are 720 HD resolution (1920x720). I'd like to watch them on my netbook, but it can't handle HD content. The videos play fine on any decently-powerful desktop, under either Windows XP/7 or Ubuntu, but they are simply too much for the Atom CPU of the netbook.Is there a way to downconvert the .mkv files to something the netbook can handle? It doesn't have any problem with standard DVD content, which is of course lower resolution. Cutting HD content down to the netbook's native resolution(1024x600) would probably be sufficient.
A free software package available in the repositories would be great, but I have no problem manually installing something if necessary. I have not done any work with converting videos to different formats, so I don't know what's out there for Ubuntu.
So I have a php script that is setup to stream flash video (.flv) and I absolutely love having it. The problem is that any files I want to stream have to be in .flv format for it to work properly as .avi and others obviously don't stream well. Up until now, I've used FFMpeg to change the format from .avi to .flv, however the process takes a lot of time if you have a lot of videos, added to that you have to do one file at a time definitely makes it a pain.Does anyone know of a bash script that can take all the files (i.e. avi, .wmv, .mkv, .mpeg4) in one folder and automatically convert it to .flv? Then possibly delete the old files? Low resolution is fine, so long as it at least viewable. Does anyone have a script or know of a program that can do this (I run Ubuntu 10.04). I think FFMpeg has the best chance of doing this, but I don't know the syntax to actually do so.
I've searched the internet, and while I have found a few scripts, they didn't work for me (still looking into two scripts I found.I am currently messing with them to see if I can get them to work).It would be immensely helpful if someone knew of a way to do this.I also forget to mention that I have used Winff, but I was looking more for a bash script to do this so that I can set a cron job to convert them every hour or so.
Downloaded ten mp4 file (approx 200MB each) and tw0 flv (approx 400MB each) from open-yale and wanted to burn them as a DVD to view on the tv. Using openSUSE 11.2 and KDE4, 2MB ram on a desktop to do this task.
I recorded audio and video (singing and playing guitar) with Cheese and Ubuntu Karmic 9.1. The video (and audio) came out pretty well (except for the typical cheese delay), but I want to upload to ...... How can I convert the ogv to something for .....? Devede doesn't do it for me, and I've tried every method out there. What do I need to do - Convert it to ogg, and then use ffmpeg? How ridiculous that I can't upload an ogv file to ......
I used dvgrab to pull the video off of my Cannon HV30 HDV camcorder. Now I have a bunch of 5 minute clips at about a gig each. I need to edit these together and use a better file type. What should I convert to, and what program should I use for encoding and editing?
I have been searching the forums with limited success on how to convert MTS files to MPEG. I have been able to open the MTS file with OpenShot and KdenLive but they aren't really for converting files or at least I haven't figured out how to do it. Is there a simple GUI tool to convert these MTS files quickly and easily?
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'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.
I have some videos made with a digital camera in mjpeg format and I want to convert so something else, into xvid, mkv or I dont know, just to made them smaller without quality lose. So is there something GUI for this, or I need to start reading the mencoder man page?
DSS and DSS Pro file formats are used by professional voice recorders such as the Olympus DS-4000, Olympus DS-5000 and Philips LFH-9600. Is there any known program running under Linux to play and/or convert these files into something more compatible?
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.
