flv2mpeg project is just a short service menu script I wrote to batch convert .flv files to something less proprietary to play in all my players. I searched the internet and didn't find any program for linux that would batch convert flv files with a gui for us noobs to use so I figured a service menu would be handy.
I didn't know anything about service menus until a few hours before I wrote this so forgive me if it doesn't work for you. From what I've read and being the simple script it is, there shouldn't be a problem unless you don't have ffmpeg installed and running a later KDE version.
Install to /home/yourname/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus
If you have any problems, feel free to email me and will try my best to answer. If you would like to change the script to convert to a different quality, here's a guideline:
-b bitrate: set the video bitrate in kbit/s (default = 200 kb/s)
-ab bitrate: set the audio bitrate in kbit/s (default = 64)
-ar sample rate: set the audio samplerate in Hz (default = 44100 Hz)
-s size: set frame size. The format is WxH (default 160x128)
Or you could also change it to convert your flv to another format if need be. But you must have ffmpeg installed to use this. Also if you do have VLC installed and associated with flv files, you can rename "ServiceTypes=all/all" in the script to "ServiceTypes=video/flv" to keep the submenu from showing up on all file types, otherwise I didn't know a way around it without vlc installed. If you have any tips to make it better, feel free to contact me.
What's New in This Release:
· Changed 'Approx Original File Quality' and 'Approx Original File Size' to 'Closer to....' so it doesn't give the impression that the converted file size will be approximate, but closer to it than the file quality option.
