I installed and used a windows application through Wine, Winx video converter.
It took 96 minutes to convert a 120MB movie from mp4 to 3gp.
At convertfiles.com it took me 28 minutes, from which upload was the 25 minutes
and 3 minutes download(74MB),
So I guess the online converter is a better solution, I thought that the conversion in the pc would be much faster.

You must have changed the frames per second setting to a different
value from original.

PostPosted: Sat 15 Aug 2015, 00:32    Post subject: Nokia Asha 302 setups
Subject description: for FFConvert
 

Playing with FFConvert in Precise Puppy, I managed to make some setups to convert videos for Nokia phones. I named the setups as Nokia Asha 302 because that's my phone model and I'm not sure if they will work for other models and brands (I think they might do the job at least for most mobile phones with 320x240 screen resolution). The widescreen setups are configured to convert HD videos while maintaining the original proportions, as by converting to full screen they would expand and look narrow. Since HD videos are made for screens wider than the ones of these Nokia phones, videos converted with the widescreen setups will not fill the phone screen, but play with a top and bottom black frame.

I also made a setup, named HD2CRT, to adapt HD videos to 1024x768 monitors. Because they're made for wide LCD/LED monitors, videos in high quality 720p and 1080p are usually played with delays or stutters under a 1024x768 sized screen (often CRT but also some LCD monitors). With this setup the videos will still be high quality and big, that's why they will take a lot of time to convert, yet they'll be in most cases smaller than the original file. Also, the videos won't fill the screen - you will get a top and bottom black frame, since the original videos were recorded for wide screens.

Always remember that the time it takes to convert a video and the file size of the resulting video will depend on the duration of the video in minutes, the quality settings for the new video file, the target device (phone, computer, etc.), and the speed of your computer microprocessor.

To add these setups to FFConvert:

- If FFConvert is running, close it. Then type in console:

Code:
geany /usr/share/ffconvert/preset


- Copy & paste the following at the end of the file:

Code:
Nokia Asha 302 widescreen HQ, -f mp4  -vcodec mpeg4  -b 384k 320x180  -r 25  -acodec libfaac 96k -ar 22050
Nokia Asha 302 widescreen, -f mp4  -vcodec mpeg4  -b 200k 320x180  -r 15  -acodec libfaac 64k -ar 22050
Nokia Asha 302 fullscreen HQ, -f mp4  -vcodec mpeg4  -b 384k 320x240  -r 25  -acodec libfaac 96k -ar 22050
Nokia Asha 302 fullscreen, -f mp4  -vcodec mpeg4  -b 200k 320x240  -r 15  -acodec libfaac 64k -ar 22050
HD2CRT 960x540, -f mp4  -vcodec libx264  -b 3000k 960x540  -r 29.97  -acodec libvo_aacenc 96k -ar 48000


- Save and close. Then you're ready to start using them.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When you apply a setup, make sure that the default video screen size and audio bitrate values are correct. For example, in the screenshot below, you can see that FFConvert did not apply the default screen size configured in the setup, it set the screen size used for the last file conversion instead! And the Adv. options field must be blank, otherwise conversion stops with an error.

Does anyone have a version of ffmpeg that contains support for the MPv4 codec?

Here is what I get from my ffmpeg:

Hi greengeek,

You seem to have libxvid on the ffmpeg you have.

See:

https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/MPEG-4

Hi William, thanks for the link. I am really struggling to understand the finer points of codecs/containers etc. My aim is to re-format some of my videos so that they will play on my Samsung xcover B550 phone. I am trying to understand the parameters/format of a video that I took on that phone (if I can duplicate that format I hope the phone will play videos loaded from external sources as well as it's own internal videos).

Here is a screenshot of the output from two differnt programmes (gnome mplayer and ffconvert) showing the supposed parameters used to create the phone's internally recorded video.There seems to be a slight bit of discrepancy between the two.

I don't yet understand the relationship between divx, xvid and MP4V so will continue to experiment with conversion.

I also don't know if the phone may have some form of DRM protection which is blocking me - but when I try to play the converted videos that i load from external sources the phone tells me "unsupported file type" - even though the file has a .mp4 suffix just the same as the internal vids. I'm obviously using the wrong codec inside the mp4 container.

I'm also trying to understand the difference between MP4V and M4V - I have found some information but by crikey there is a lot to understand. Posing a valid question is hard when you can't see the wood for the trees.

Hi greengeek,

Yes, it is tricky. Could you post the results of:

Code:

ffmpeg -i  some_video_that_works_on_your_phone


to see what ffmpeg itself thinks the codec parameters and video container used are?

May not help find the conversion details to use for ffconvert, but may help if different from your ffconvert info you already posted screenshot of.

William

EDIT: It could be that your player needs that FourCC specified (-tag:v DIVX maybe), but bit rates and frame rates and more could also be critical (for both the video and the audio):.

You also might need to adjust the resultant video quality (once you get the codecs etc correct) - that might mean encoding with -q:v numeric_quality_value (e.g. -q:v 5 or higher quality: -q:v 3 etc) but I'm not myself sure since I'm more used to encoding with libx264, which probably doesn't work on your Samsung xcover device. Maybe something here will have something useful:

http://superuser.com/questions/309822/ffmpeg-command-to-convert-to-divx

And the following is quite informative:

https://evilsoup.wordpress.com/2013/02/10/general-ffmpeg-encoding-guide-2/

EDIT2: I think something like the following might work for you greengeek (if suits your device) since your ffmpeg seems to have libopencore-amrnb enabled, which is a narrow band speech encoder (the ffmpeg I use doesn't have that enabled, but the following convert commandline works on my linux using libmp3lame for audio instead though I also had to use an mkv (output.mkv) container rather than output.mp4 (output.avi also worked). You'd maybe still have to tweak the command or find something similar in ffconvert:
Code:

ffmpeg -y -i video_to_convert.mp4  -r 15.214 -s 320x240 -c:v libxvid -q:v 3 -tag:v DIVX -c:a libopencore-amrnb -ac 1 -ar 8000 -b:a 12k output.mp4


Of course, if your ffmpeg is older you might need to alter the syntax (e.g. -vcodec libxvid ; -vtag DIVX ; -acodec libopencore-amrnb ; -ab 12k ; but don't use these semi-colons!).

I don't, however, have a Samsung xcover device to test on so may be other issues. And, note that with some much older ffmpeg there is a chance the order of the command arguments would need modified (I can't remember). Hopefully okay though. Note that if libopencore-amrnb isn't accepted (though I think it will) you could try simple audio encoder called pcm_s16le or perhaps libmp3lame - if your Samsung can decode these (for these latter you'd probably want to change audio bitrate/quality settings though).

I just tried looking through the presets in ffconvert and found one for "LG Chocolate" so I gave that a try - thinking with LG and Samsung both being Korean phones there may be some common ground, and sure enough the converted video did play successfully on the Samsung.

Just for the record here are the specs of the converted file. It might not be 100% what the Samsung wants but hey it works so it gives me a workaround. Thanks for the help!

(I don't understand how the vid specs say it uses mP4v when my ffmpeg told me it did not have that codec available, but oh well, it seems to work...)

Although it seems to work I am finding some videos end up with the sound fully muted when played on the phone (an icon of a muted speaker shows up when I try to increase or decrease sound). I don't understand this as some videos work perfectly - and all videos play audio correctly when run on the PC - it is only when on the phone that the sound is gone.

If I use ffmpeg to examine the encoding parameters of these "audio muted" files they appear to be using "5.1" (maybe that's something the phone doesn't like)

I wonder if there is some way to switch off the 5.1?

Hi Greengeek,

in ffconvert 'Detail' tab you should check Audio 'Channels' and probably make sure it is 'mono', or 'stereo' (or on ffmpeg command line, same thing really, use -ac 1). You possibly, currently, have it as 'Same as source'.

You can fine-tune most ffmpeg conversion parameters in that ffconvert Detail tab (also screen size, for example).

William

Thanks William - changing the "same as source" to "mono" sorted the problem out nicely and got rid of the "5.1" from the ffmpeg output.
Here is the comparison:

The file with fixed mute sound showed this line:
Code:
# ffmpeg -i /mnt/sdd3/dvdriptemp/B2TF2_2.mp4....
...
Input #0, mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2, from '/mnt/sdd3/dvdriptemp/B2TF2_2.mp4':
....
    Stream #0:1(und): Audio: aac (mp4a / 0x6134706D), 44100 Hz, 5.1, fltp, 176 kb/s


and the file with working sound showed the following:
Code:
# ffmpeg -i /mnt/sdd3/dvdriptemp/B2TF2.mp4
....
Input #0, mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2, from '/mnt/sdd3/dvdriptemp/B2TF2.mp4':
....
    Stream #0:1(und): Audio: aac (mp4a / 0x6134706D), 44100 Hz, mono, fltp, 55 kb/s

All good now - I can rip videos and format them for my Samsung Xcover B550H button phone (old school style non-smart phone but ruggedised for contractor use)

v1.3.1 - 31 Dec 2012: capturing parameters, auto cropping whole foler, fix was failed with spaces in filename (thanks to smokey)

1.3.1 is the version with Fat Racy 5.5, not bad but screencasts are very tiny. Perhaps my settings are bad, but if i change somethings, Ffconvert does not work more anymore.
I translate here above topic if any solution yet given to users.
