Description:

[size=1]MOUvie Converter is a little movie converter script for converting different video files on the fly during Right-Klick over one or more Video files in Nautilus.[/size]

Converts to DVD, VCD, MVCD, SVCD, MSVCD, MPEG-TS, MP4, XviD, WMV 7 & 8 and to PDA, PSP, PS3, Xbox360, IPod and IPhone format. (More will come)


New: Windows Media Video (WMV 7 and WMV 8) , PS3, Xbox360, IPod and IPhone output formats
New: Flash Video and OGG input formats
New: Support for Multithreads added (up to 4 Threads)
New: GFX Installer


Older News: Installer
Older News: DVD convertion (just start the script WITHOUT selecting any file. You will be asked to select the VIDEO_TS folder.)
Older News: see changelog for more information


It needs
- zenity
- lsdvd (you should have it in your repostitory)
- ffmpeg (you should have it in your repostitory)
- mencoder (you should have it in your repostitory)
- MediaInfo (the CLI version) (you can get it here: http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net for various Linux Distributions. Also we need two Libs from that Website: libmediainfo0 and libzen0)


Installation:
- Download the mouvie_converter-{VERSION}.tar.gz to any directory you like.
- Open an console or open it in an Archivemanager
- Type tar xfz mouvie_converter-{VERSION}.tar.gz in the console to unpack.
- Change in movie-converter-{VERSION} directory with Nautilus
- Doubleclick install.sh and select "Run Application"
Now the installer will start. Simply follow the informations ...


Settings:
If you want to change some settings, you can delete the following file: ~/.mou_mc_setting
After that you will be asked some questions when you start MOUvie Converter the next time.


Output File Name:
The converted file(s) are named like:
For DVD in PAL: DVD_filename.mpg
For MPEG4 in NTSC: MP4_filename.avi
For VCD in PAL: VCD_filename.mpg
and so on ...
The Destination file(s) will be saved in the same directory you selected the source file(s).


I Need Help
- Can someone conferm NTSC convertion? I have only PAL tv-system for testing.
- Can someone conferm PSP, PS3, Xbox360, IPod and IPhone setting? I haven't one for testing.
- Help with translations in other languages. Please contact me if you are interested.

Hello,

sorry for late answering.

I am currently working on your request.
Until know i have rewritten a lot of code. The main problem for HDTV is, that i don't have any HDTV device at home. So i can not test the settings.
Your XVID request is working.
The next release will follow in a few days.

Hi joplass,

thanks for writing,

can you send me the output of an console message?

Please type in "which mediainfo"
It should be something like "/usr/bin/mediainfo"

But i can tell you an little workaround for instlling.

Open install.sh with Gedit an change in line 160 PKG_CHECK=$? to PKG_CHECK=0

The installation should finish now.

bye...

Installing libavcodec-unstriped did it for me.
I was wondering, have you tried adding a resolution of 1280x720 in the script?

Hi,

in this version (0.0.4) it is not possible to convert to HDTV formats.

And i don't understand what do you mean.
Why do you installed libavcodec-unstipped?

In opinion it had nothing to do with the failure when installing MEDIAINFO (not found) message you posted above.

What have you done? Please explain it for me step by step.

They are in the same folder you selected the source files. Naming is for example for converting to DVD: DVD_PAL_filename.mpg

Hope that will help

i'm sorry, but there are not output video files... somethin peculiar is that the dialog says that conversion is finished after 3 seconds, even with big files > 1gb.
