konqkonv - easy KDE DVD/VCD mpg creator

konqkonv is a KDE service menu which allows quick and easy conversion of video files (I've tried .avi, .mov and .mpg with it) into DVD or VCD compliant mpg files. You will need to have mencoder and/or ffmpeg installed and at least 5GB of free space in your home directory, maybe more depending on the size of the file being converted. Once finished, the mpg will be saved into the root of your home directory. For DVD mpgs you can then use Varsha to convert the mpg into a .iso file which can then be burned to DVD with k3bs 'Burn DVD iso image' option. For VCD mpgs you should just be able to drag and drop the mpg into a new k3b Video CD project window.

To install, just copy and paste the source code into the file /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/konqkonv.desktop (or /opt/kde3/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/ under SUSE) The video conversion options will then appear under the 'Actions' menu when you right-click a video file.


If you just get a blank konsole window with the title 'Time' (as I did under Debian Sid) then edit out every instance of the word time from konqkonv. It should work then but you won't see how long conversion took at the end.

If you have a video that fails then try upgrading to the latest version of mencoder/ffmpeg then it should hopefully work :)


0.1 - First release, only supports PAL mpg generation

0.2 - Second release, now supports NTSC too

0.3 - Added support for ffmpeg video encoder

There is now a great GPL tool for making video DVD's very easily under Linux/UN*X called DeVeDe. It has many advantages over konqkonv, the main ones being it supports batch conversion (more than one video clip), gives a disc-usage indicator, lets you pick the bitrate and eliminates the need for Varsha for making the DVD image. Sorry KDE fans, but its a pyGTK/GNOME app. It's in the Debian Marillat repository already but everybody else can download it from


How long until we see something like DeVeDe integrated into k3b and gnomebaker?

 Great script

Very useful. The only thing I don't like is it saves every file to /home/user/ with a generic filename. I modified the servicemenu a little and I thought I'd contribute back if it helps anyone.
With some fancy use of sed, you could make your servicemenu even more convenient. Try replacing each output filename (e.g. PALDVDwide.mpg) with something like

%d/`echo %u | sed 's/\/.*\///' | sed 's/\..*//'`\(PAL-DVD-Widescreen\).mpg

in the konqkonv.desktop file. This causes the servicemenu to save the new video in the same directory as the input video, and gives the new file an appropriate name. For example, "/home/user/movies/Matrix.avi" becomes "/home/user/movies/Matrix(PAL-DVD-Widescreen).mpg"

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.
