Converting Video files in Linux
To start with you would need to install "ffmpeg". This program allows you to convert any video or audio file to what you want it to be.
If you have Debian then you would type in the root terminal :
apt-get install ffmpeg
After installing that you will need to plan what you want to convert and what format you want to convert it to. This program is command line and not graphical so you would need to open up your terminal.
so you need to let the system know that you want to run that program so you would type in: "ffmpeg", then you need to give it the command to run its duty so you put in "-i". Then you give in your input starting with "/home/", then your output starting with "/home/" again.
so this is how a example command line will look:
neel:/home/neel# ffmpeg -i /home/neel/Desktop/Famguy/part6.flv /home/neel/part6.avi
note: I have the file format I inputed and the file format I want to output.
Punctuation is important, if you miss spell or have a capital where its supose to be lowercase, it will not work.
