Talk:Video Encoding


Nice command line tutorial for Linux! Especially since it's multi-system in actuality. Now, the real question is, what to do with multi-audio?--Prothall 21:13, 28 December 2005 (GMT)

I want to ask: why not use the lavc codec for both video and audio compression? AFAIK, it produces MP3 as well, and using it provides for a terser and more readable command-line, plus you don't need LAME. Also I think scaling should be added, and an indication of bitrate/filesize vs. quality. I think it's pretty rude you just deleted all of the previous information without providing a substitute (RiX0R).



The easiest way to convert between any video-format in Windows is Super. And it's free.

Mac OS X guide

I posted a guide for encoding videos under Mac OS X using ffmpeg/mencoder/mplayer and a GUI for those tools. I will have a DVD encoding guide forthcoming, but good DVD rippers are few and far between for OS X.

I want to know if the current level of detail is alright. Quite frankly, I could have elaborated much further, but I worked under the assumption that if you a) are geeky enought to own a GP2X and b) you managed to turn on your computar-box without much hassle, a truly step by step guide would be pointless.

Also, somebody should mention how to use VLC to convert raw framces of otherwise incompatable videos into GP2X format. Because a good amount of the GP2X's functionality rests in it's good video playback ability, I think it's worth giving people a backup plan for conversion if all else fails, even if it doesn't work that well.

OGM is not video codec is an contener like AVI

OGM is an contener that can have xvid, divx video codec. Yod4z 28/10/2006 13H07 GMT+1


Removed the (pretty useless) table at the bottom, and lots of macOS stuff as duplicated what was on other sections. If anyone can recommend a better way of ripping dvds for macOS and Linux, it would be appreciated.

Many thanks :) Justthisguy 08:16, 10 November 2006 (PST)


I was surprised that VLC isn't mentioned in this whole article. It's pretty good, and you can even make bash script droplets, like this one I just made (a .bat file on Windows) (if anyone wants to add it to the article somehow..)

if %1=="" goto end
start "Blah" /low /b /wait "C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" -vvv %1 :sout=#transcode{vcodec=DIV3,vb=300,acodec=mp3,ab=64,channels=1,audio-sync,width=320,height=240,fps=15}:duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=ts,dst=%1_gp2x.avi}} vlc:quit
shift /1
goto loop

PPC-based macs?

Avidemux is a great program; if you have an Intel-based Mac. For those of us who have macs that are three years old or older, what is a program that will do what Avidemux will, but function on a Power-PC-based Mac? Preferably one compatible with OS 10.3.9 or earlier.
