Oh, ffmpeg is a command line program. You need to open a terminal window and type ffmpeg followed by the command switches.

eg. ffmpeg -i testvid.mpg -acodec copy -vcodec mpeg4 -f avi -s 800x600 testvid.mp4

This might convert a MPEG2 video to MPEG4, copy the audio without transcoding, and resize the video to 800x600, putting the result in the AVI container format. The result being testvid.mp4. EDIT: Though if using the AVI container, the output extension should be ".avi". ffmpeg can also guess the format you want to convert to based on the extension of the output filename, if a format isn't specified with the -acodec and -vcodec switches.

There a a huge number of options for ffmpeg. It can cut, join and combine video and audio files among many other things.

There are a few ffMPEG GUIs around, but I don't know if there are packages for any in the respository.

I have the extensions "ffmpeg.tar.gz" and "mm-base.uci" in mydsl, but I don't know how to start the program?
Could you help me?

You probably want "mm-base.uci" which is in "Testing" in the respository.

That should should stop the missing library error if that's yur problem.

That's an old version of ffmpeg, but it works fine for most things. I did try to compile a new version over a year ago, but ran into too many dependancy problems. I can't remember if it was impossible or I just ran out of time.

Perhaps you're confusing PCI with the newer PCIe, many modern motherboards have both.

Here's a picture showing both:

A Pentium III Motherboard would usually have a few PCI slots, but definitely no PCIe ones.

There's a chance it might also have one or two ISA slots like these (except the short one, that's an older sort):

ISA network cards were made as well, but you can't buy them in computer stores anymore. PCI Ethernet cards should still be easy to find.

Thanks for your reply, but the MoBo doesn't have pci slot, I mean they are not the same as the ones on my moderns PCs. They are smaller and seems to have less connectors.

Not sure quite what you mean, but if you want to access files on the laptop from other machines, i.e. creating a server, best to use cat5 crossover cable, with a directory on the laptop being exported, via ftp.

So you want the laptop's HDD to look like a USB memory device to anything that plugs into its USB port via a cable?

Well I can't say I've heard of anyone doing as you suggest. You'd need to have some software on the laptop send all the USB ID information that USB devices identify themselves as. It would probably be best for it to identify itself as an external USB HDD, so that the accessing device can accept that it behaves like a HDD and probably doesn't have a FAT file system.

You would have to have the "USB HDD Emulator" software on the laptop access the HDD data directly - like formatting and partitioning programs do. Of course you certainly couldn't have the drive mounted by the laptop at the same time as it was mounted as a USB device by another machine, two systems managing the same file system would conflict horribly (unless there's some file system format that allows for it).

You would have to use a USB crossover cable as well, these are fairly easy to buy.

So it's most likely possible, but I don't know of any software to do the job for you (I haven't looked though, so you should do some decent searching). Certainly if there's any way to do the same job over a network using FTP, a remote file system format, or a USB file transfer system, it would be far simpler than this.

hello all ,
 i was searching forsomething and didnt really find it .
here is what i have in mind ..
i would like to start a laptop with cdrom ( booting into dsl )
and then mount the drive on sda available via usb .. so the usb acts as a host
to anything that can use an external flash/usb drive etc

would anyone be interested in getting a spin going ?

i dont know how challenging this might be ?

thanx all
