Thats from the ffmpeg site. My problem is every time I try to play a video that ive made with the above I get "This video cannot be played." I know there is a ffmpeg version with psp support and I did download the most recent version with the svn. They don't use cvs anymore. I've not installed it yet cause well 1) its source and I don't want it to interfere with the version that is installed and I'd have to uninstall a few programs to be able to uninstall ffmpeg because of the dependencies. (well there is that nodep thingy) and 2) when I run ./configure on the new version it says aac enabled - no. Which I know I need.
I had some trouble with the install until I upgraded FFMPEG, which it sounds like you've done. It works like a charm. I can't help you with the ffmpeg commands though. I wish I could figure it out myself so that I could write a script to transcode all my vids.
Distribution: Xubuntu 9.10, Gentoo 2.6.27 (AMD64), Darwin 9.0.0 (arm)
here's the script I use:
# Encode video to psp format
# Default Settings
# Make Screenshot
ffmpeg -y -i $1 -f image2 -ss 5 -vframes 1 -s 160x120 -an M4V00001.THM
# Encode Video
ffmpeg -i $1 -f psp -b 768 -ar 24000 -ab 64 -s 368x208 M4V00001.MP4
mv M4V00001.* $WORK_DIR
It encodes the video and makes a screenshot with names that work for my psp. it names the files the same everytime: this is because I can only fit one show at a time on my memory stick anyways so I never had a problem. you can rename the files replacing 'M4V00001' with 'M4V00002' and so on. hope it helps.
Ok got the configure options and everything and I even got it to work. YaY. The problem is now the ffmpeg is using more updated libraries. so when I uninstall the old ffmpeg and install the new one mplayer and vlc wont work cause its missing the old library files...
