  • mvPod – converting video

    Posted on November 28th, 2008 wt8008 No comments

    mvPod is a gui over mencoder, and it can support conversion from rmvb to H264 mp4 for the ipod. Use version > 0.1alpha2, or else you’ll run into issues. The newer versions the mpeg4ip-server package is needed, according to the author, the next release will have this information in its’ documentation. Also, two-pass encoding fails, so do not select that option.

    Using Amarok, the files can be transferred to the iPod. gtkpod allows the user to change the tags on the mp4 file, and also transfer it to the iPod.
