Description:

=================================
Version Notes:
1.0 - Beta version
1.1 - Added .vob-type support, specified audio channels for all options.

Later version notes: At some point I'd like to add a GUI instead of a menu and add an option to concat multiple .mpg / .vob files.

=================================
FFMpegMenu Installation:

*You must have ffmpeg installed correctly to use the iPod conversion. More instructions below.

> Installing ffmpegMenu in Konqueror:
(You must be root or sudo)

cp [location of .desktop file] /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/

> Installing ffmpegMenu in Dolphin
(You must be root or sudo)

cp [location of .desktop file] /usr/share/apps/d3lphin/servicemenus/

* If the servicemenus/ doesn't exist, you must create it. Name of folder may vary with distro.


=================================
Installing ffmpeg for use with ffmpegMenu:

(I subversioned the source of ffmpeg from their site. You must install subversion to get it.)

You must have the following dependancies installed:

liba52
libdc1394
libfaac
libfaad
libfaadbin
libmp3lame (or liblame)
libtheora
libvorbis
libx264
libxvid

libavutil
libavcodec
libacformat

gcc 4.1.3

(Install these at your own risk. Make sure to get the [packagename]-dev files. I used the Gusty 7.10 repos 64-bit and it worked for me.)

Then configure your ffmpeg source:

./configure --enable-gpl --enable-liba52 --enable-libdc1394 --enable-libfaac --enable-libfaad --enable-libfaadbin --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis --enable-libx264 --enable-libxvid

(This worked for me. Other options may be added but I won't cover those.)

After configuring and Make/Make Install, you should have a functional ffmpeg.

Also note: You can convert multiple files at once, but this may really slow down your computer. Each file will bring up a terminal window. Press 'q' to quit. Window will have "Finished" in the title or will exit when completed.

I'm not sure why but when I ran the service menu it converts the video alright but I get no sound.

Am I missing something?

Thanks

I like it.
I have a suggestion. Add screen type options (wide screen, letter box etc).

Thanks!

It might be a while until I get around to it. If you understand the basics of ffmpeg, (see the man pages) you could edit the .desktop file in a text editor and add/re-write an option to do widescreen / letterbox.

It's probably not the answer you're looking for tho.

Thanks, I appreciate the answer. Not to worry I do understand enough of ffmpeg to do it.

The /usr/share/apps directories showed my service menus.

If that doesn't work for you, try copying/installing to the

~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus
~/.kde/share/apps/d3lphin/servicemenus

directories.
