convert video on ubuntu

August 9, 2011

Hi Guys,


in this morning, I received a movie clip from my friend,. but I completely confuse, how to transfer that file to my phone, my device just 240×200 in resolution, and the file too bigger for my device, so I try to googling research for converting file in Linux machine

and I found ffmpeg, simple, and very easy

first you must download the apt

# sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

then convert your video 🙂

# ffmpeg -i <source_video_file> -s 240x200 <destination_video_file>


From → Ubuntu
