Sory this may have been asked before but I sure cannot find it!
I want to go from avi to mpeg suitable for burning to vcd. I have tried most of the tools I can find mencoder, ffmpeg, mjpeg tools the lot
Most I cannot get to work properly, best so far was ffmpeg but it will not do the the command to make a vcd complient mpeg, its quality is err pants I dare say because it wont let me do 2 pass encoding.
Anyway have given up on that. I have a working wine installation and was wondering if you could help me get TMPGenc running as I have heard good things about it under wine and in Doze it is about all I used.
I can run it fine but when it comes to opening an input file audio or video of any kind it tells me it is unsupported, I assume i is the lack of codecs. I thought media player would help as that comes with a stack of codecs, cant install it as it comaplains about windows media update notifier.
A clone of TMPGenc or mainconcept encoder for linux would be great but I'm happy to run Tmpgenc under wine
I guess the best way would be to install the codecs for the AVI was encoded with (Both the video and the audio) - you could probably just run the Win32 installer for the codec through wine and hopefully it'd work ;)
