Thank you for this service menu. It's very useful and works fine with my iPod nano. For me I edited line 51 in 2video4mobile.sh to

newname=$(kdialog --getsavefilename "$(basename "$1" .avi).mp4" "*.mp4 |MP4 $FILES")

to get proposed the name in dialogue. The '.avi' removes this extension. I didn't figure out a way to get work for all file types. Perhaps, you can.

It would be very nice, if you could add a progressbar or something like this. I played around with the 'kdialog --progressbar'. But I'm not familiar with dbus-commands to get the state of ffmpeg.

I changed the proposed name, and I also would like to have a progressbar, but that turned out to be rather difficult and is not included yet (I don't know if it's even possible actually)

hmm, I found the error and fixed it, for me it works fine again.
After copying the Servicemenu, dolphin needs some time (about 30sec. for me) to update to the new version, maybe try again?
Otherwise, I cannot reproduce the error and thus don't know what exactly the issue is...

i've compiled ffmpeg with aac support, but nothing happens when I try to convert a video

Yes, you can also use mencoder, it should not be that difficult if you use this script as draft.

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
