i think the point is that you always write "you're" (vous _etes) when you mean "your" (votre)

[i can't speak french very well, but i hope i chose the right words and you get my point ;) ]

The problem is with the -f option in the .desktop file. Change the Exec line in the file to:

Exec=konsole --noclose -e ffmpeg -i %u -vcodec xvid -r 29.970030 -b 768 -ar 24000 -ab 128 -s 320x240 ipod_file.mp4

Basically, I removed the -f option and added the -vcodec option. xvid is MPEG4.

Honestly, these settings aren't really ideal. IMO, a bitrate above 650 is overkill for such a low resolution video file. It's also better to keep the original framerate (by ommitting the -r option) to avoid "ghosting" of the video. If you're interested in fine-tuning your conversions, take a look at this blog post:

http://www.huebelfamily.org/node/23

I would suggest splitting the service menu into four options. One would do full-screen conversion at 320x240 (4:3). The second would do widescreen at 320x192 (16:9). These two options are good for iPod viewing. Then also have two conversions that are TV-friendly. Full-screen resolution would be 480x360 and widescreen would be 480x288.

Lastly, it may also be useful to have a service menu that shows the input video file's characteristics so the user can make an educated decision on the conversion to choose. You can get that information by using this command line:

ffmpeg -i input_file.avi

Sure, it exits with an error. But that's typically a quick way to determine what the input resolution, framerate and audio bitrates are.

Nope. No clue. Send the term output to the author along with your system specs and ffmpeg version. Maybe he can track it down. Are you on debian 3.1?

I was in the same situation about the Unknown 'xvid' error. It's true you have recompile ffmpeg with xvid support, but don't worry here's a nice tutorial/wiki to help you. It's only a couple of commands:

Hi,

I read your page and took your settings, they work great, but there is one thing I would like. If a source not in the ipod format ffmpeg should add black borders.

Any idea howto do this automaticly?

 Binary Distros

If you're running a binary distribution like Fedora, Debian or Mandriva, you'll probably have to recompile ffmpeg with xvid support. Many of these distributions support a limited set of codecs in their pre-compiled binaries.

If you're using Gentoo (which I use), then make sure the aac and xvid USE flags are set.

Although a bit old I like this service menu. Replace the existing command with the following:

Exec=cd "%d";konsole --noclose -e ffmpeg -f mp4 -y -vcodec xvid -b 768 -qmax 10 -bufsize 4096 -g 300 -acodec aac -vol 256 -ab 128 -ac 2 -i %u -aspect 4:3 "`echo %u | perl -pe 's/\\.[^.]+$//'`.mp4"

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
