Thread: HOWTO: Encode video for a Cowon iAudio D2 (MP3 player)

  1. #11

    Re: HOWTO: Encode video for a Cowon iAudio D2 (MP3 player)

    Anybody know what I could use to get video on my Cowon iAudio7? The D2 nautilus script won't work for it.

    [bump] I have an iAudio 7 and would like to know, too -- although I haven't actually tried the D2 script yet, so I don't know what's wrong with it...

    The following was taken from http://www.cowonamerica.com/products...ech_specs.html
    and
    http://www.cowonamerica.com/products/iaudio/7/
    respectively:

    Here's the video the Cowon D2 takes:

    AVI : MPEG4 ~ 2Mbps, 320x240, 30fps, MP3 audio
    WMV : WMV9 ~ 768kbps, 320x240, 30fps, WMA audio

    Here's the video the Cowon iAudio7 takes:

    AVI: XviD, MPEG4, 256 ~ 384 kbps CBR, up to 160x128, 15 fps *

    *Need to transcode using jetAudio

    Hopefully, someone can edit the script, giving it these new parameters for all you iAudio7 users. Personally, I'm still deciding between the Cowon D2 and the iRiver Clix 2.

    Just install Iriverter, wich is in the ubuntu package.
    copy one of the preset files to D2 and edit it with the D@ variables.
    Works better than the program in windows that came with the device.

    Your script worked great on my 2 hour movie. It took a 320x240 Xvid DVD rip/encoding with a huge A/V sync problem (video was twice as fast as audio) and made it into a 320x240 DivX that had perfect (or nearly perfect) A/V sync. The output file was 100 MB bigger than the input, but that's a small price to pay for A/V sync.

    Thanks for the iRiverter tip.. I downloaded it.

    here's a profile for the D2. Just add it to your /usr/share/iriverter/profiles/ directory

    BTW - I didn't create the file. I grabbed it from the iAudiophile forums. Seems to work well.

    Thanks for the thread.

    I was beating my head against the proverbial wall myself.

    Paul133's post had the info I needed. Being that I'm using OpenSuSE right now I downloaded and installed KVideoEncoder and used that to convert my files using the paremeters above.

    Hi,

    You all seem much more at home with encoding for such devices than me! Could I get a suitably skilled person to look over some work I have done on an iRiver X20 player:

    http://people.aapt.net.au/~adjlstrong/iRiverX20.html

    I have been wrestling with this for some time and have achieved reasonable results but I would love a little input from outside!

    Another simple command line converter which only needs ffmpeg


    FFMPEG -i INPUT.VOB -s 320x240 -vcodec mpeg4 -vtag XVID -b 500kb -mbd rd -flags +4mv+trell+aic -cmp 2 -subcmp 2 -g 300 -r 29.97 -acodec mp3 -ab 128 -ac 2 -async 1 OUTPUT.avi

    Thank you very much for this script dcs3jah-James. I hope you are continuing work on this script. I find it very useful for converting my downloaded TV shows. Again thanks very much.
