    video conversion program for Linux

    Advertisement



    I'm currently on Ubuntu Linux and was wondering if there was a Linux App that would convert video to Blackberry compatable format.

    I've tried a couple of Windows based conversion programs running in Wine emulation, but was not successful - lots of OLE related errors.

    Thanks in advance

    I believe your best bet will be Handbrake or a KDE app called kopy? or something like that, just search in lifehacker.com for best DVD ripping apps, a lot of people use Linux and Ubuntu specifically on that site, good luck!

    There's a command line tool, I think it's called mmpeg. It's kinda hard to use though. But I know there are some gui video convertors that use it as a backend. Check on ubuntuforums.org or linuxappfinder.com
    Feel free to pm if you have any trouble.

    mencoder

    Mencoder works perfect for my 8100 didnt look into the file formats of other phones.

    mencoder -vf scale=<WIDTH>:<HEIGHT> <INPUT FILE> -o <OUTPUT FILE> -of avi -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=230:acodec=mp3:abitrate=64

    for example for 8100

    mencoder -vf scale=240:180 something.mpg -o something_bb.avi -of avi -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=230:acodec=mp3:abitrate=64

    If you are using konqueror you can put the attached file (without the .txt at the end) into <HOME>/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus and edit the file for just the width and height. You should then be able to convert the files in konqueror by right clicking and selecting actions -> Encode for Blackberry. It will spit out an avi file there is NO indicator when its done so make sure that when you view the properties that there is a time other then 00:00:00 before you transfer to BB.

    I Have been running the old 6.0 ubuntu for a long time, but recentley got tired of windows again, so booted back into it and ran the 8.04 update, and have been using that nonstop since I installed it. I have gotten almost everything working and up to snuff

    I came across, k9copy wich is a gui that will convert DVD to Mpeg4.
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.
