Convert 2 Video MP4 (iPod & PSP) is a tool to convert mostly any video file to MP4 format, that will be playable on your iPod or PSP.
· iPod TV
· KDE 3.x
· ffmpeg with aac xvid and h264
The install script will create a directory under your home directory called .convert_2_mp4
The scripts and icon files will be kept there.
The *.desktop file will be in the standard KDE konqueror service menu directory. $HOME/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus
For the install script to execute correctly you must be in a terminal and in the dir that it is extracted to when you execute it.
Do not use the mouse (click) to execute the install script.
Type "sh convert_install" without the quotes
To use the konqueror service menu right click on a video file and select Convert 2 MP4.
The file will automatically be converted to the selected format in the same dir it was started in. The resulting file will have the original name along with the codec, format and an .mp4 extension.
You can select and convert more that one file at a time but it will take a very long time ( make sure they are of the same format 16:9, 4:3, 2.35:1 ).
Xvid is much quicker than h264.
The service menu selections are broken down in the following format.
Service menu selection "Xvid-iPod-4:3-300k.Bitrate"
"Xvid" is the codec. You will also see h264
"iPod" is the resolution. You will also see PSP and TV (for the iPod TV output)
"4:3" is the screen format. You will also see 16:9 (wide) and 2.35:1 (super wide)
"300k" is the video bitrate. You will also see 500k. TV has a bitrate of 800k
