This is rather a quick and dirty post about converting a video format into another. I have this one awesome movie/series in
mp4 format. Using Linux and
ffmpeg, it is fairly easy to convert this into a
AVI format so I could burn this into a DVD video disc.
ffmpeg -i some-video.mp4 -sameq output-video.avi
-sameq option will try to encode the video into the specified format with least possible loss. Let’s try another format.
ffmpeg -i some-vdieo.mkv -sameq output-video.avi
Requirement though is that you must have this
ffmpeg stuff with the required dependencies. I installed all dependencies in my Slackware box though.
Enjoy and share.
