    Re: AVCHD-video (.MTS) to AVI, fast and easy way

    I just tried this again on a new install, 9.10 64-bit.

    1.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential subversion zlib1g-dev
    2.
    Code:
    svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
    cd mplayer
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install
    Then, just do it (this command does not downscale the picture)
    Code:
    mencoder 00001.MTS -o 1.avi -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=10000 -fps 50 -vf scale=1920:1080
    There's also another variation, a bit higher quality but about 3 or 4 times larger file size.. There's no point, actually, but anyway (if someone knows how to make video quality ALMOST identical but with smaller file size, let us know...)
    Code:
    mencoder 00001.MTS -o 1.avi -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vqscale=2 -fps 50 -vf scale=1920:1080
    This script just works, just follow the commands above and you should be good with it!

    And then converting the whole directory:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install csh
    Make a file, name it convert and place it in /bin -folder. Then open the convert-file and put the stuff in it:
    Code:
    #!/bin/csh
    
    # For NTSC change -fps 50 tp -fps 60000/1001 below
    
    foreach f ($*)
       mencoder $f -o ${f:r}.avi -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=10000 -fps 50 -vf scale=1920:1080
    end
    Allow the file to execute as a program. Now, just go to your .MTS-folder and write
    Code:
    convert *.MTS
    See all your files converting...
