    Convert flv to mpeg2

    I'm trying to change some flv videos to be able to play on a dvd player and after numerous attempts and googling I was able to play a lower quality dvd. I was trying to use dvdauthor for my latest attempt but it insists on mpeg2 files and not the avi or mpq I'm ending up with. Does anyone have any advice?

    A suggestion from a discussion at the Puppy Linux forums. One of the posts suggests the following ffmpeg command for converting flv to mpeg-2:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i file.flv -ab 128 -ar 44100 -b 500 -ac 2 -s 320x240 file.mpg
    If commandline is not your thing, there is a Linux GUI for Mencoder: AutoMen for Linux. I think it's Free software, but I'm not sure. According to this review, it supports flv

    If you get really stuck, there's a freeware program called Mediacoder, which mostly works with WINE. Apparently, it converts from flv to mpeg-2.

    run this with wine. It works amazingly!

    [EDIT]

    I should really learn to read previous posts completely ^_^

    Shouldn't the resolution be increased to 720 x 480?

    Ok, I was able to change the videos but is there a way to increase resolution so the dvd has a good picture?

    The target option in ffmpeg will automatically set the other options (frame size, bitrate, codecs, buffer sizes) and make an appropriate output:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i input.flv -target dvd output.mpg
