create vcd cdimages in 2 steps[edit]

  1. you convert the videofile you have on your harddisk (may be anykind), to a mpeg file, that matches to the vcd specification using ffmpeg:
    fmpeg -i <videofile>  -target pal-vcd  TEMP_OUTFILE.mpeg

better results in encoding, i had if i used mencoder (with the following options):

#!/bin/sh
mkdir -p "$HOME/VCD"
for f in *.avi ; do
mencoder -of mpeg \
-mpegopts format=mpeg1 \
    -vf expand=:::::4/3 \
    -vf-add scale=352:288 \
    -af resample=44100 \
    -ovc lavc \
    -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg1video:vbitrate=1050:vhq:keyint=15:aspect=4/3 \
    -oac lavc \
    -lavcopts acodec=mp2:abitrate=64 \
    -srate 44100 \
    "$f" \
    -o "$HOME/VCD/$(basename "$f" .avi)".1050.64.vcd.mpg
done


  1. in the next step you should be able to create a video-cd-image using vcdimager:
vcdimager -t vcd2 $TEMP_OUTFILE.mpeg
* avi -> mpg
* avi -> svcd
* avi -> dvd 
* dvd -> wob -> avi
* mplayer --v caca
* transcode
* mencoder 
* wmv Windows Media Player-> xvid avi = mencoder
   (mencoder -ovc wanted_videocodec -oac wanted_audiocodec wmvfile.wmv -o avifile.avi)
* wma Windows Media Player-> ogg = (look in audio)
* [example wmv->avi]


help, this doesnt work: shrink avi

transcode -i "test.avi"   -y mov -w 1152 -V -o "out.avi"   


* mencoder : shrink avi 
mencoder -ovc xvid -oac mp3lame -xvidencopts bitrate=1000 -lameopts
               abr:br=128 -o out.avi test.avi
