Description:

Batch or single convert your .Avi files to .mp4 so you can watch them on your video iPOD or PSP.

Kommander ffmpeg and (mplayer for the progressbar to work) are required.

ffmpeg MUST HAVE----- xvid------ or h264-------- SUPPORT ENABLED

If you need to recompile ffmpeg for xvid support here is a guide from (K)ubuntu. Adjust as needed for your distro.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/iPodVideoEncoding

Here is another for Fedora
http://videotranscoding.wikispaces.com/ffmpeg

Here is a precompiled binary for debian distros with the proper codecs. Use at your own risk!
http://www.debian-multimedia.org/pool/main/f/ffmpegcvs/ffmpeg_20070329-0.0_i386.deb

This newest version 2.1.2 WILL work for the old and new versions of ffmpeg. However, on the newer versions of ffmpeg if you have a video with 6 channel 5.1 audio it MAY NOT work on that file. This is due to limitations of the newer ffmpeg. I had some luck but the channels were messed up (center was right, left was rear)

The video codec is xvid or h264 and audio is aac.

Options for

Preview
Audio bitrate
Video bitrate
Aspect ratio
TV, PSP or iPod output

h264 is VERY slow but it can make the files much smaller by lowering the bitrate to half of the xvid with the same quality.




Changelog:

PLEASE report any failures by sending me a message on www.kde-apps.org
telling me what you did and how it failed. Also include the output from the command "ffmpeg -formats"
Thank you

V2.1.3
Konqueror service menu for quick no GUI conversion (Kdialog progressbar will appear).

Konqueror service menu to open selected file in Avi2iPod.

Output directory is preserved on exit.

Tab widget changed to include relevant execute button on the appropriate tab.

Installer script to place the service menus and icons in the proper place.

The installer script is not required to run the program (just service menu). Simply click the *.kmdr file if you dont want to use the service menus.

2.1.2

This newest version 2.1.2 WILL work for the old and new versions of ffmpeg. However, on the newer versions of ffmpeg if you have a video with 6 channel 5.1 audio it MAY NOT work on that file. This is due to limitations of the newer ffmpeg. I had some luck but the channels were messed up (center was right, left was rear)


If you can, get a slightly older version or if you are using a debian distro use the one in the debian-multimedia.org repros.

If Avi2iPod fails you either dont have the codecs installed or you have a new version that is not quite where it needs to be yet for 6 channel audio.

V2.1.1

Added default values for AV codecs in the event Avi2iPod cannot determine your ffmpeg config. Default codecs are libfaac libx264 libxvid. If you get a message that a codec is not installed it still may work.

v2.1

Added total time counter displayed at completion of encoding.
Tweaked ffmpeg settings to acheive better bitrate control.
Final file sizes are now predictable due to the improved bitrate control.
Added a preview tab so users can see what the final product will look like without encoding the entire video.
Included in the preview tab the selected file is automatically played with detected viewing programs after the sample is generated.
Included in the preview tab the estimated final file size is displayed.
Included in the preview tab is some basic information about the file you are encoding.


v2.0
Added check to see if Xvid, h264 and aac support are installed. If not error reported. (need feedback)
Added support for the SUPER wide screen format 2.35:1 (PSP iPOD TV)
Removed check box "I have a different version of ffmpeg" Your type of video codecs (libx264 h264 libxvid xvid) are now automatically detected.
Removed choices for resolution. The choice of aspect ratio and iPod or TV automatically determines resolution.
Removed the requirment to have custom FW installed on your PSP. The PSP tab should encode for all PSP's now.
Removed Presets. The choices are now simple enough that presets are not needed.
Removed Volume tab and added it to the iPod options tab.
Fixed a problem with the alternate codecs ( see above. libxvid libx264 aac vs xvid h264 aac) I still need feedback on this.

v2.0 Beta 4
Added options for different versions of ffmpeg. Some versions use libxvid libx264 and libfaac for the video and audio codecs.
Others use xvid h264 and aac.
Added clickable text to select the check boxes.
Added minor cosmetic changes.

v2.0 Beta 3
Added ffmpeg realtime ouput to statusbar
Added PSP AVC native resolution 16:9 (480x272) 4:3 (368x272) encoded with h264.
Files are now renamed to the specifics of the format.

v2.0 Beta 2
Added h264 support
Added real time current file progress bar
Added optimized encoding for TV resolutions.
Added presets for xvid & h264
Added support for Dual Core processors (I don't see much of a difference)

v1.3
Added a low priority option
Changed layout
Changed icons/Graphic
Added Presets & Volume gain
Fixed bug for spaces in filename

v1.2
Added index counter (File x of x).
Minor cosmetic formatting changes.

v1.1
Changed resolutions for TV
Added icons for Aspect ratio and Resolution dropdown boxes

i runs amazingly fast but i couldn't find any file.
any clue?

The top file selector is for input files (avi).

The file selector below that is for the output directory (mp4). All files that are converted are stored in that output directory with the same filename but with an .mp4 extension.

If it ran fast you most likely missed a step as the process takes some time to complete. Or you may be experiencing the problem listed below.


Filenames with spaces in them are not processed correctly. This may be a function of ffmepg as I dont have the problem with other kommander scripts.


Thanks for trying my script.

i think the spaces problem could be solved by putting "%filename" instead of %filename (or \"%filename\", I'm not completely sure of how kommander works.)

Your input forced me to reexamine the script and led to the solution.

I had not put a double quote at the begining of basename and at the end of .avi

now it looks like this

"@FileSelector2.text"/"`basename "@file" .avi`".mp4

Thanks

I think it should. I dont have a PSP but as I understand it the PSP plays mp4 video files.

If the resolution is not correct then let me know and I will add the option for a PSP screen size. I would think that the wide screen options should be fine on the PSP.

Try it out and let me know.

Works fine on a PSP. I tried it today.
Always make sure you convert the mp4 in its original screen format. wide or full.
The PSP can stretch the video to fill the screen if needed.

I've finally found the problem! I reinstalled the libfaac package and now works perfectly with medibuntu's ffmpeg.
Thank you very much 454casull :)

Kommander should have take care of the file associations for you. However, try this if it did not.

In a konsole in the dir you have the file in type.

kmdr-executor /path/to/file/You-downloaded.kmdr

It appears Kommander did not install correctly.

Try this link and compile it yourself. Or try your package installer again and reinstall.

Kudos for a great application! I have it working on Mandriva 2007.0. The only thing I needed to do was urpmi kommander (I already had all the ffmpeg and mp4 and aac libs installed). Your app is so easy to use that I think you must be a genius! This is my first exposure to kommander as well, so overall it was a morning filled with learning.

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.
