iPod Video Encoder is a command line tool for convenient encoding of video files for use on iPod video. iPod Video Encoder project uses the ffmpeg tool for the actual encoding.

It features recursive encoding of all files in a directory, and generating a podcast.xml file for convenient use in iTunes.

Here are some key features of "iPod Video Encoder":

Encoding of single files
Optional specification of a/v bitrates
