  1. v0.0.9w Apr 27, 2006
    http://ffmpegX.com/download.html

    - Universal version (application and all encoding components with full support of SSE/MMX optimizations on Intel machines and Altivec on PPC machines).
    Performances on Intel iMac (encoding from a VOB file, no crop) as follows :
    mencoder DivX 640x272 100 fps (a movie is encoded in less than 30 minutes)
    ffmpeg DVD 720x480 96 fps ( " " less than 30 minutes)
    ffmpeg divx 640x272 60 fps (" " about 45 minutes)
    ffmpeg xvid 640x272 47 fps (" " about 1 hour)
    x264 h264 640x272 40 fps (" " about 1 hour)
    mpeg2enc DVD 720x480 25 fps (" " real time)
    Please note that ffmpeg cropping code is currently not well optimized. Using crop will lead to slower performances than the above figures.
    - Support of the latest version of all encoding components also including further optimizations for PowerPC Macs.
    - Added .FLV Flash Video preset for encoding video suitable for internet streaming (eg. use in blogs). You may find a tutorial about using Flash Video on your website here: http://ffmpegX.com/flv.html
    - Enabled mencoder "Audio gain" option in the Intel version.
    - Fixed threads issue with DivX 3 mencoder preset.
    - Fixed bug in "add audio" file selection.
    - Fixed audio bitrate value in "iPod for TV" hi-res preset.
    - Fixed handling of PSP labels containing spaces or special characters.

    Please report any bugs here.

    [PPC] The new mplayer doesn't play sound of MPEG-2/AC3 with an .mpg suffix, but does when the suffix is (changed to) .vob.

    Yes, it will be universalized later, it does not affect the encoding in any significant way.

  6. 20" Core Duo iMac here. When I tell it where the binaries are, put in my password, and hit "Install", I get "The Installation was Not Successful" and "##sudo: chmod: command not found".

    Edit: nevermind. problems on my end.

    Something missing in your OSX, anyway, try to copy the 3 binaries by hand into /Library/Application Support/ffmpegX.

The conversion was not successful on a dual core Intel iMac. An output file was created, but the file opened in QuickTime Player with a white window having the autoset dimensions and there was no transport when I clicked "play".

    Here's the Process info.

    I have successfully converted the movie using a command line with the ffmpeg, x264, and MP4Box executables. I wonder if maybe movtoy4m is not the correct executable to call.
    Thanks.

  11. If you use the QT decoder on mpeg-2 files, you need the Apple mpeg-2 player component.

    I get an error in trying to install the recommended Mencoder and Mplayer binaries after upgrading to the latest FFMPEGX (0.0.9w)

    I believe some code doesn't like my wonky filesystem naming, when I placed the FFMPEGX app onto my desktop the path was obviously quite shorter and more standerdly named and the installation of binaries was error-free.

    Here's the error response:

    ##rcmd: getaddrinfo: No address associated with nodename
    tar (child): /Applications/Media Design & Editing/DVD\:VCD tools/ffmpegX/ffmpegX.app/Contents/Resources/mux.tgz: Cannot open: (null)

  13. The application must be located in /Applications and not in /Applications/Media Design & Editing/DVD:VCD tools/

    So it won't work at all in my preferred location? I will change it to /Applications (but it seems to work just fine for the past year or so in my deeply nested file structure).

    Thanks for all the work on this, I desperately love this application for converting all the H264/MP4 files to a more watchable Xvid/DivX format on my 1.0 GHz Mac Cube

    Why would I want to use the QT decoder? I'm a registered ffmpegX user. I didn't see the mpeg-2 player requirement in the instructions at the ffmpegX web site (http://ffmpegx.com/ipod.html). I thought I was just following the instructions. I *was* trying them while booted from a clean partition where I hadn't entered my registration yet, though. Is that sabotaging the process? Thanks.

  16. It is said at the bottom of this page, http://www.ffmpegX.com/download.html
    ffmpegX uses many decoders and many encoders. One of the decoders is Quicktime. If your Quicktime Player is unable to open the VOB file because you miss the Apple mpeg-2 component, so will ffmpegX. Two solutions : 1/ use another preset, or disable the "Decode with Quicktime" checkbox in the Options tab, 2/ install the Apple component.

    Some other ffmpeg target formats, also with Decode with QT activated, encode fine however:
    MOV mpeg-4 (ffmpeg); MP4 mpeg-4 (ffmpeg); 3GP (ffmpeg h263); iPod for TV (ffmpeg xvid); PSP (ffmpeg xvid); DV (ffmpeg dvvideo); FLV (ffmpeg Flash Video).

    OK, thanks. This is precisely why I am testing on a clean system. So now my bug report is, "Default settings are not compatible with default installation with regard to conversion of .VOB files to h.264 files as instructed at http://ffmpegx.com/ipod.html " I think fixing that may prevent numerous other help requests.

  19. OK, I'll add a notice in that page.

    Should be fixed now, please download again ("About ffmpegX" should report version "0.0.9w_r1") and let me know whether it is OK.

    I've got an iMac G5 but the mpeg2enc file that you link to is called "mpeg2enc.intel." Where can I find the PPC version to install?

    BUG:

    Okay after closing the mplayer for a preview in mpg2->mp4 H.264 mencoder i get this errormessage:

    FIXME:Hardenabling SSE and SSE2 without detection
    The selected video_out device is incompatibe with this codec.
    Try adding the scale filter, e.g. -vf spp, scale instead of -vf spp.

    All 17 that failed before, do now encode okay on my test clip. Thanks for the fast fix.

  25. I selected H264[.MP4] (x264), and under Options, the Qmin and Qmax values seem to be fixed. I cannot adjust them. Is this how it is supposed to be maybe?

    Hi,

    Great Work major, however, I'd love to register but PayPal doesn't take maestro cards (widely used in Europe) so I'll give the cash to someone who has a Visa/Mastercard and register it that way, just wanted you to know that I'm lovin' your work though!

    It is a Universal version, just ignore everything and follow blindly instructions at http://ffmpegX.com/download.html

    Selecting subtitle size still doesn't work when burning in ssa or srt subtitle using a mencoder preset. Guess I'll have to keep switching between binaries.
