    Default Video conversion/formats


    hey peoples
    I have made a video that i want to upload to my facebook, but no matter
    what file format I have tried, it always is in excess of 50mb, which is
    way too big for me to have on my profile..

    My question is... does anybody know of any tools to use to make a video
    file smaller? for eg: I have tried converting it to avi, .mov, mpg,
    mpg2, and lowering the quality to the minimal... but they are still too
    big for a 3 minute video... Any ideas? cheers
    kaddy

    I suspect that .3gp would do that trick.. I installed 3gp movie wizard,
    which is a gui for ffmpeg, but it doesn't seem to start up. I tried it
    in konsole and i got this output

    bah.
    I found a command that worked. And indeed 3gp made my video file a
    sweet 5mb :d

    the command i used was

    ffmpeg -i video_clip.mpg -s qcif -vcodec h263 -acodec libamr_nb -ac 1
    -ar 8000 -ab 12.2k -y clip.3gp


    I wish there was a gui to do this... i couldn't find one.. would of
    made things alot easier as there was about 10 commands to do the same
    thing that didn't work until I stumped across this one...
    ahwell. works fine now

    thanx anyways
    kaddy

    Try avidemux-qt (-zypper in avidemux-qt- as root or install it from
    -yast-). I don't think it supports 3gp format, but it supports several
    other codecs which could definitely be used to encode a 3 minute video
    in less than 5MB.

    Ditto. -avidemux-qt-
    Works a treat.
