I'm trying to convert some video files to mpegvideo using mencoder. I've tried convert wmv and raw video files. I get the same error, namely:
Opening video decoder: [raw] RAW Uncompressed Video
VDec: vo config request - 300 x 200 (preferred csp: Planar YV12)
VDec: using Planar YV12 as output csp (no 0)
Movie-Aspect is 1.50:1 - prescaling to correct movie aspect.
videocodec: libavcodec (300x200 fourcc=3267706d [mpg2])
[mpeg2video @ 0x84a4000]MPEG1/2 doesnt support 1000/1 fps
Could not open codec.
FATAL: Cannot initialize video driver.
VDecoder init failed
Cannot find codec matching selected -vo and video format 0x32315659.
I think "MPEG1/2 doesnt support 1000/1 fps" is the significant part. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? What do I need to pass to mencoder to make it work? I've tried looking in the man file and in the other documentation but it's huge and I can't find anything.
hi you can use ffmpeg to do that I only know the command to convert a wmv to a mpg or a mpeg, but i hope it helps
ffmpeg -i input_video.wmv -target pal-vcd output_video.mpg
good luck wait ffmpeg didnt exist in 2003 right? oh well.. still hope it helps
