    Here is all I could find out:

The AMV code has been sent upstream to the main FFmpeg project.

    Re: What can i use to conver AVI to AMV file?

    this is good stuff!!! now can someone explain to me how to do this? i have downloaded FFmpeg and installed it downloaded the google tool and installed it but how do u use it? do i have to do it in terminal?

    Using patched FFmpeg
    (for that try to see here http://code.google.com/p/amv-codec-tools/)

    In common case command line will look like

    ffmpeg -i <input> -f amv -s <width>x<height> -r 16 -ac 1 -ar 22050 -qmin 3 -qmax 3 <output>

    FFmpeg accepts any picture resolutions, but hardware players supports only:

    * 128x90
    * 128x128
    * 160x120

    Input file can be any video format supported by FFmpeg.

    Note: if output file has 'amv' extention, -f amv option can be omitted.

    Option -r 16 sets framerate to 16 frames/sec (other values seems to be not supported by hardware players).

    Options -ac 1 and -ar 22050 sets 22050 Hz mono sound. Other formats are not supported.

    Options -qmin 3 and -qmax 3 forces quantizer to be equal to 3. This will give you good quality with acceptable file size.

    Example 1. Converting AVI file into AMV with 160x120 picture size:

    ffmpeg -i file.avi -s 160x120 -ac 1 -ar 22050 -qmin 3 -qmax 3 file.amv

    Hay un excelente programa con entorno gráfico que funciona a las mil maravillas en Ubuntu.
    Es GNU, hay que bajar la versión Linux, descomprimirla en una carpeta y darle click al archivo MPxConverter y listo!!
    El tamaño del archivo es de unos 2MB

    (great GNU software for Linux (Ubuntu), unzip the file, double click MPxConverter and enjoy converting videos to AMV)
