wine codecs


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

Anybody help me with this?

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 ;)

Been there done that and got the error messages.

The mikisoft codec packs seem to go on ok(ish) but the wine window gives a load of fixmes and registry write - the codecs dont get installed

its not just the format the avi is in, it will open no files atall mpegs or anything so me thinks wine has no cedecs bundled atall
