    Default How to convert videos for S60V5 phones using Avidemux

    Avidemux is a free video editor designed for simple cutting, filtering and encoding tasks. It supports most video formats like DVD, VOB, AVI, DivX, XviD, WMV, MPG, MP4, AVI, MOV, MKV, DV, FLV. Tasks can be automated using projects, job queue and powerful scripting capabilities. Avidemux is available for Linux, BSD, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows.

    Avidemux is simple to use and is very intuitive (despite its versatility). Here are the steps.

    1) Download Avidemux here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/avid...2.exe/download

    2) Install and run it. Click on the highlighted icon to open a video file. If you get a question "Build VBR time map?", click yes.


    3) Select these highlighted values for video, audio and format.

    4) Click on "Configure" and set Encoding mode and Quantizer as in the picture.

    5) Click Video Filters and select Mplayer resize. Set the resolution and Lock AR. Then OK and close. You can leave the audio at standard 128kbps or you can change it lower at Audio Configure (I select 96kbps). If you need to add subtitles, just add another filter from section "Subtitles".

    6) The final step is File > Save As. Give a name like "24 s8e01.mp4" and click OK (remember to also write ".mp4"). Now the conversion starts.
    The conversion process should be quite fast thanks to multi-threading, and the quality quite high for the resulting video size.
    Enjoy.

    Thanks, i'll try it now!

    So with this, the quality will resemble to handbrake?
    What about converting speed? And no more "lags" during videos?:P

    The quality of the videos and the conversion speed should be as good as with Handbrake.

    Since none of the converted videos has caused any freezing issues, I've moved from Hndbrake to Avidemux for most of my conversions.

    Avidemux may indeed have trouble to open some of the wmv files, depending on their encoding. If that happens, just try another converter.

    Default Re: How to convert videos for S60V5 phones using Avidemux

    Yesterday I did some conversions for my 5800 using Avidemux with the above settings. As source files, I've used the TV series "24" and "Lost", encoded in Xvid avi with 624x352 resolution (these are about 45m long videos).

    The good news: the conversion on my Core i5 notebook took abut 4 minutes for each episode! Avidemux was utilizing all the cores via Hyperthreading.

    The bad news: still no batch conversion, so the files have to be added on by one.

    For comparision, a similar conversion using Format Factory (with constant video bitrate) took about 6.5 minute long.

    Remove the check from "Lock Aspect Ratio".

    Another problem on Avidemux:

    1) Everytime I wanna see the video, on my phone, the start tof the video is a black image. (But i hear the sound).
    I loose like 5-10seconds of video. Whats wrong?

    2) FF and Avidemux on same video, showed some differences, such in the resolution(details) [FF had better detail, and less filesize]
    FF Filesize = 94mb [better quality]
    Avidemux = 127mb [worse quality]

    It seems FF is really good. Only need to know why he doesnt crops the video auto.
