I got an interesting project from a Friend this morning...
He wants to encode his (important
) family videos (holidays / slideshows that I made from his wedding photos / other video stuff
) to a files playable on his PSP
I was trying several times / different methods and finally found solution that satisfied my needs.
1) Open console
2) Use command:
mencoder /path/to/input/video.avi -oac lavc -ovc lavc -of lavf -lavcopts aglobal=1:vglobal=1:vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=384:acodec=libfaac -af lavcresample=24000 -vf scale=368:208,harddup -lavfopts format=psp -ofps 15 -o /path/to/the/output/video.mp4
3) When the conversion is all done connect PSP with a USB cable
4) Open PSP's memory card via file manager ie. Dolphin
5) Find folder VIDEO (should be in the main folder of the card if not create it)
6) Paste the video.mp4 to the folder
7) Safely remove the PSP
After that You should be able to watch video on Your PSP.
I have tried avidemux-qt and after 7 hours of encoding PSP said that the created file is a unsupported data... Mencoder did it in about 30 mins and I am happy with the video quality.
I am sure that converting any other (then avi) input file is a go...
Hope this helps.
