  1. I'm trying to convert a Xvid video to MP4 using handbrake, but it only coverts roughly half of the video then stops, and the only video player that will play the video to which I have installed is, if you heard of it PotPlayer.

    If handbrake is unsuccessfully and usually handbrake converts almost anything I throw at it successfully, what alternative is there ?

  2. If anyone can help as to the commands to use to do a one to one conversion from Xvid (AVI) to MP4 using FFMpeg, I would appreciate it ?

  5. Here's a script

    If you want your video to be maximum compressed with a constant factor of 18 (slow, but Best options based on trade off between time and quality)

    ffmpeg -i "Your video.avi" -crf 20 -bf 5 -refs 9 -me_method umh -me_range 24 -subq 9 -trellis 2 -x264-params b-adapt=2 -ac 2 -acodec libvo_aacenc -ab 192k "Output Video.mp4"

    A bit more faster but a few MB more in size

    ffmpeg -i "Your video.avi" -crf 20 -bf 5 -refs 9 -me_method umh -me_range 24 -subq 9 -ac 2 -acodec libvo_aacenc -ab 192k "Output Video.mp4"

    Or if you want it to happen faster (using a preset, "faster")

    ffmpeg -i "Your video.avi" -crf 20 -preset faster -ac 2 -acodec libvo_aacenc -ab 192k "Output Video.mp4"

    If you don't like the quality you can reduce the CRF value from 20 to something less to increase the quality, like 18 or something.

    Both the above converts it but the output file size can't be predicted (will be much less than the original that's sure), If you want a fix on file size then you would need to do a bitrate based encoding. But I think these are enough.

  6. Stream mapping:
    Stream #0:0 -> #0:0 (mpeg4 (native) -> h264 (libx264))
    Stream #0:1 -> #0:1 (ac3 (native) -> aac (libvo_aacenc))

    [mpeg4 @ 000000de17c78040] Video uses a non-standard and wasteful way to store B-frames ('packed B-frames'). Consider using the mpeg4_unpack_bframes bitstream filter without encoding but stream copy to fix it.

  9. I aborted the conversion fails too many times.

  10. Seems to be a corrupt streams, can you try repacking the video into a mkv file?

    ffmpeg -i "yourvideo.avi" -c copy "YourVideo.mkv" (It's very fast and takes usually seconds, so don't worry)

    And then try one of the above commands.

    Where did you get this video from? Is it by a torrent? Then certainly the video haven't finished downloading yet.

    Glad you find a solution to your problem. You must've got a corrupt or ufinished XViD in the first place
