AVI (Video) File Resizer

Requires mplayer & ffmpeg with xvid and mp3 codecs

Can be used on any video file. Not just *.avi

This script was designed to help me fit (resize the file) multiple Xvid TV episodes (entire season) on a single DVD. The calculation is based on the hours, mins, seconds and the desired file size you want. You will end up with a file size VERY close to the value you entered.

It can also do multiple movies if they are of similar size and length. Else the quality may vary wildly. If so do a single instead of a batch job.

The new files will have the same name as the old files with a prefix of resized so the input and output can be in the same DIRECTORY.

The "input files" selector can select multiple files so you can encode one or many files
If you select an entire season (about 25 episodes) of files it could take quite a few hours to complete. The current file being processed is displayed in the bottom status bar.

ffmpeg 2 pass is used to encode the files.

Each file will be encoded with MP3 audio bitrate of 96 kbps. The video is encoded with the Xvid codec.

I used this script to go from 230MB to 175MB with good results. That saved me almost 1.4G for the season (25 episodes) and let me get it on a single DVD to play on my stand alone player.
You should try it with a single file first to check the quality and then do a batch job.

There are other tools to do this but this one can be setup and going in less than 1 min.



Added selectable quality (encoding speed)

If you choose the "Best" quality option the encoding process is VERY slow but worth the wait. Choose this option if you are trying to really cut down the file size. I use it to go from 350 to 171 MB (45 min video) with very good resuts. A 45 min video will complete in about 1 hour 30 min.
The "Good" quality option might be used if you are only trying to knock 30 or 40 MB off of a 350 MB or larger file. The encoding is MUCH quicker. A 45 min video will complete in about 35 or 40 min.


Added selectable audio bitrate. The drop down is also editable so you may add your own value if you don't like the preselected one.


No longer required to input episode length , its automatically detected.

Simply select a file or files, enter the desired size and GO.

Not sure what you are asking.

Its distro independent.

For the optional "Launch in Konsole" KDE's Konsole is required.

The download consists of a single file called VideoFileResize.kmdr.tar.gz
Extract that file and click the VideoFileResize.kmdr file to start it up.

Kommander is required.

Please add an option to encode the videos for a target average final bit rate instead of just the final size!

Thats a no go.

The ONLY purpose of this app is to get an exact size file.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
