Score 77%
Description:

Kvm is a Konqueror service menu which allows to manage your videos without to use a graphical application. This service menu can be considered as a frontend of ffmpeg.

Important: the releases >= 0.2 use the parameter format of ffmpeg in order that the user can add his own options to the task.

To do for version 0.2.1:
- record a stream,
- other suggestions are welcomed

I'm currently working on the next release of Kvm and I would appreciate suggestions to improve Kvm.

I have a friend with a Sandisk Fuzz, but can't find a converter so he can watch videos on it.
Would it be possible to add a default profile for this device and other sandisk devices that are said to be linux compatible by the company? I'm asking all the video converter devels, in hope that someone will consider it.

We would greatly appreciate it.

.. it would be nice to have some documentation with this.

I've been struggling for weeks with video. I've managed to capture video from my old Sharp VL-SD20 with Kino and/or DVGrab, and export to MPEG 1 and 2 and AVI - but the file sizes are huge. I don't want to make DVD's - I want to make small mpg files to send to family/friends.

This application worked - but on some files, made them evem larger!

Then I figured out how to add the -s option to reduce the frame size - which was great - more than half reduced the file size.... but now the sound is all screwed up (just hear buzz noise) with the smaller file.

Even at 320X240, a two minute video is about 9MB too.

Use Avidemux:
OpenVideo, select
Video = h264
Audio = mp3

If needed, scale size of video at filters. every VLC plays it

This would be awesome if it didn't delete files. That should never happen. Its really annoying. It deletes any file it tries to chop, resize. Otherwise this works awesome for converting files. Saves lots of time. Maybe work in some sort of.. umm... queue system...? later on so that in can convert multiple videos one at a time. That would be sweet.

kubuntu feisty :)

Same thing, no feed back. I haven't tried it from the CL yet but I expect it might be the same thing. Which is odd, considering other apps don't have a problem with mpgs or another video file format. Perhaps we are missing a dep?

I had this same problem and I solved it by exporting HOST:

export HOST='whatever your computer name is'
