View Full Version : [kubuntu] AutoGK-like program that lets you specify a filesize?

July 7th, 2008, 05:03 AM

I'm trying to recompress some DivX/XviD files to a smaller size. In Windows you can specify a size for the file that you want using AutoGK, but I'd really like to not have to run Windows in VirtualBox (this is the last thing that's keeping me from wiping Windows completely from my hard drive).

Is there any front-end tool similar to AutoGK that I can use for something like transcode or mencoder that will let me specify the file size (and get it right to +/-5 MB)? Seeing as how AutoGK can usually do it to within a megabyte or two, I think this is reasonable. I know that AutoGK works well for MPEG sources under Wine, but it doesn't work with AVI sources (from what I can tell it doesn't like to talk properly with AVISynth). Preferably a KDE app, but a Gnome app will do if none other exist.

Thank you in advance.

Try avidemux then. You can specify two-pass video size.
