Question Video Encoder


Hey !

I have a problem with transcoding video on linux server (dis. Slackware 11.0).
I'm building a video upload-transcode service for my client - from any video format to .flv (for a flash player). Here, the problem show's up - if i upload uncompressed avi or any ordinary video encoded video file, i can transcode it with ffmpeg, it works file. The problem shows up with not so common video formats as 3gpp and other mobile formats. I know, i can add a "plugin" to ffmpeg, but with so many video formats, that can't be done quick and it still wouldn't support all video formats.

I was looking all over the web for an universal video transcoder for linux, that could transform all known video formats to FLV's, but couldn't find one. Maybe you could help?

Cheers
Andrej

well you can't support "all" formats can you? there's always another one... that's the very point of the ffmpeg plugins.
