    Thanks a lot, I tried this out

    ffmpeg -i filename.flv -s qcif -vcodec mpeg4 -b 200k -acodec libvo_aacenc -ab 64k -y filename.3gp

    It works! I am also using winff, it's great!

    I use ffmpeg. As far as I know, it's CLI. So it'd be like
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i NameOfVid.avi NameOfVid.3gp
    Doesn't have to be avi though. Haven't ever converted to 3gp but it's worth a try for you

    Hi,

    If you wanted 3gp files with aac sound and h263 video the straight commandline FFmpeg should be your friend. Simply follow the directions on this page to get the most out of your copy of FFmpeg:

    Unfortunately I don't know enough about WinFF to offer any guidance with it .

    Guidance on WinFF in this context is easy. If your ffmpeg can do it, winff can do it. @gigaferz, your ffmpeg did not have amr_nb build in. Which version of Ubuntu are you running? If Intrepid or newer, do you have libavcodec-unstripped-51 or -52 installed, or just libavcodec5X (I think you need the unstripped version)?

    Re: convert video to 3gp

    @ ken do san,
    i tried it but it gives me a segmentation fault
    not even the wine version works
    @ andrew
    I ve been trying that (looks like ffmpeg is ok) but it always gives me a bitrate error or incorrect framesize , from commands copied and pasted from websites

    and that software just expired, and me as usual with no cash, lol
    @ paul
    i have the unstripped version

    I KNOW so far :
    video codec h263
    video fps 15
    video size 176x144

    audio codec libmp3lame,ac3
    audio bitrate 64 (however ive seen 10.200?)
    audio frequncy 8000

    Im gonna try mpeg4 as a video codec to see if this works.... thanks for your help

    this is an error i got

    could not find tag, codec not currently supported in container
    Could not write header for output file #0 (incorrect codec parameters ?)

    this is my command line so far
    ffmpeg -i 1.flv -vcodec mpeg4 -s 176x144 -r 15 -b 100k -acodec libmp3lame -ac 1 -ar 8000 1.3gp

    same with errors with h263
