  1. Transcode video from Explorer context menu?


    Is there an app available somewhere to transcode video from the Explorer context menu? I could do with one as much to avoid breaking my concentration by being distracted by opening and configuring another app when I am trying to work on something else, as to save time. Typical use would be to save disk space by converting very large video files of low quality to small files of low quality.

    :)

  3. N96 Real Player no sound

    What application did you used in transcoding a particular video? Some apps sometime fail to transcode the audio portion, or transcode it in a format which the realplayer of the phone(not a full version) can't play. Have you try to play the transcoded video
    in pc first before transfering to the phone, if the audio is alright ? Transcode it to 3gp format, most of the time it plays the video/audio alright.

    Transcode video from Explorer context menu?

    If you have an app that can do the transcoding, you can add it to the 'Send to...' context menu.
    You just put a shortcut to it in the %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo folder.


    That would at least open it in you preferred app and save some time. If your app accepts command line switches you may even be able to configure the compression setting too - not sure how you'd configure where it would put the output file though. It very much depends on what third-party app you want to use - Windows doesn't have one of its own.

    For a 'home made' solution, are you familiar with FFmpeg? It's probably the best open source command line utility for video processing. I use is so much I have added it to my %PATH% environment so I can uses it from anywhere I can open a command prompt.

    I've just written a .bat file with my most commonly use compression settings in it, put in in my 'C:\Program Files\FFmpeg' folder, and added a shortcut to it in the SendTo folder. It will ask you where to save to and what output filename to use, but then it just goes and compresses the video. If it's of use to you, copy and paste this into Notepad and save it as a .bat

    Code: @echo off echo full path to output folder required . . . echo example: C:\TEMP set /p out_path="path to save to? : " echo Name (no spaces allowed) with an .mp4 extension required . . . example: my_video.mp4 set /p out_file="save as filename? : " echo compressing %1 to %out_file% in %out_path% choice /m "Continue with this video compression?" if ERRORLEVEL 2 goto eof ffmpeg -i %1 -crf 28 -preset veryslow -tune film %out_path%\%out_file% pause[/quote]

    Then type the path, filename, and Y to confirm (or N to abort).

    FFmpeg can accept almost any video format as input, in this example the output must be mp4 because that is what the preconfigured compression options are intended for.

    Dalchina, File Converter is exactly what I was looking for.
