Question Converting to AMV video format.

Hi back!

This question has to be with MP4 players. Since the one I own reproduces video in AMV format How can I convert a video to this standard under Slackware 12.1? I mean mpeg, avi, etc to amv.

Thank you!

You may want to go the svn route as outlined on the ubuntu forum instead of using the binary from the first link. Good luck either way. Seems to be fairly problematic from what others are saying. Dunno.

Thumbs up It works!

Thanks Jong357! The program works ok.

Here is an example of how to use it (if someone else needs this). This is how I did it and, for me, it worked OK:

amv-ffmpeg-linux-i386-20071030 -i inputfile.mpg -f amv -s 160x128 -r 16 -qscale 2 -mbd 2 -g 1 -ac 1 -ar 22050 outputfile.amv
I have tried with .mpg and .wmv. In both cases it worked ok.I think it will also work for .avi.

Hope it helps,

Thanks again,
