avi to dvd with ffmpeg


Can I change an avi file into ntsc and ac3 to make a dvd using ffmpeg? I can make a combined ntsc mpg with ffmpeg, but how do you splice the audio into ac3 also (like transcode can do below)?

You can do it with transcode (which uses ffmpeg):

" transcode -i matrix.avi -y ffmpeg --export_prof dvd-ntsc --export_asr 3 -o matrix -D0 -b224 -N 0x2000 -s2 -m matrix.ac3 -J modfps=clonetype=3 --export_fps 29.97 " (taken from http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t...c-start-0.html )

Transcode won't work on my system do to compilation error problems, If I can do it with just ffmpeg (or another app) it would be a lot easier. Thanks for your help.

Linux is making this quite an irritating process. I've spent hours getting errors with countless apps and tools...
Now I get "ERR: SCR moves backwards, remultiplex input" from dvdauthor, which supposedly means I need to mplex -f 8 -o file.mpg, but doing so gives me:
**ERROR: [mplex] File thefile.mpg unrecogniseable!
**ERROR: [mplex] Unrecogniseable file(s)... exiting.

I am merely trying to convert an avi file (that is in divx format) to dvd format to be burnt and play on a stand alone dvd player!
Thanks for any help.

Go to videohelp.com and then on the left click "ALL GUIDES". Scroll down to the "ARTICLES" section and then click on "Linux video guides". I'd post the URL's but I have not made 5 posts yet to LQ.org.

hi there Synesthesia,

you should give TOVID a try.

It's basically a set of ready-to-go scripts that make it much easier to "convert" any .avi, .mpeg, ...media file into a DVD-ready format which then you will also be able to burn on a DVD considering you have all the dependencies it requires.

You're better off just going to http://tovid.org/
and read through the DOCS and FAQS before you try it out - also make sure that you try to set up all dependencies (such as Python, wxPython, mplayer, mjpegtools, ffmpeg, ImageMagick, SoX, dvdauthor, vcdimager, transcode,
libdvdcss, lsdvd) prior of attempting to install tovid to ensure you'll get the maximum features!


I'm using it and loving it and I'm sure you will too once it's set up correctly!

Have fun

I know how to do convert file formats and everything...I pretty much made my own script...But transcode has compilation errors. I even got the package made for slack10.2, and it doesnt work.

Maybe someone could tell me how to completely remove things affecting it from my system, and reinstall them...

Well I've compiled and installed ffmpeg several times, and transcode still give me this error when i do ./configure:
ERROR: requirement failed: cannot link against libavcodec
libavcodec can be found in the following packages:
FFMpeg http://www.ffmpeg.org/

Ok, look for where it installed those files when you did the make install then add that path to your /etc/ld.so.conf then run ldconfig and then run ./configure again
