    Re: Converting files to Xvid

    Telling a new Ubuntu user that he or she needs to compile something is definitely not the best approach.

    OP, try installing winff with "sudo apt-get install winff" then choose AVI from the "Convert to" box and the appropriate XviD "Preset" for your content.
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    You just have to download it (from one of the links under the "Linux Static Builds" section), then extract it (the file browser GUI should be able to do that for you or use the tar command), then navigate to the directory containing the ffmpeg file you downloaded. Then just run it in terminal, but don't forget the ./:
    Code:
    ./ffmpeg -i input -vcodec mpeg4 -acodec libmp3lame -q:v 2 -q:a 4 output.avi

    Notice that I also provided a link to simply download a binary, and even new users who can follow instructions and cut and paste have compiled successfully.

    Re: Converting files to Xvid

    Does OpenShot video converter allow you to do this? I use it for other things - like converting old home movies or extracting/pasting parts of videos, but I never tried using dvix as the output type so I don't know if it supports it or not.
