Convert an .MTS file to a .MP4 file

We want to convert it to .MP4, for instance to show it on a mobile device Android, or to play it om xbmc, or to import into kdenlive.

For a whole directory, type:

IFS=$(echo -en "\n\b"); for i in *.MTS; do ffmpeg -i "$i" -vcodec mpeg4 -b:v 15M -acodec libmp3lame -b:a 192k "$i.mp4"; done

or offtopic:

find . -print0 | while read -d $'\0' file
do
  echo -v "$file"
done

Now, if you want to resize it for some reason (show on mobile phone):

#ffmpeg -i 00031.MTS -s 480x320 -b:v 4000k 00031.MP4

-i = input file

-s = size <=== PUT THE SIZE PARAMETER JUST AFTER THE INPUTFILENAME, OTHERWISE YOU GET AN ERROR

-b:v = videobitrate, 8000k gives a slightly better image, but doubles the filesize -b:a = audiobitrate

Using these parameters you shrink a 25MB movie to a 6 MB movie.

Convert an .DV file to a .MP4 file

ffmpeg -i tape.dv -vcodec mpeg4 -b:v 15M -acodec libmp3lame -ab 192k -threads 2 -ilme tape.mp4

-ilme = Force interlacing support in encoder (MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 only). Use this option if your input file is interlaced and you want to keep the interlaced format for minimum losses. The alternative is to deinterlace the input stream with -deinterlace, but deinterlacing introduces losses.

Convert an .MTS file to a .DV file for video editing

We want to convert it to .DV, because then our video editing program (kdenlive) will process the clips much much faster!!!

#ffmpeg -i 00005.MTS -f avi -b:v 16000k -ab 192k 00005.DV

-i = input file

-f = format, appeared neccessary

-b:v = videobitrate, this value of 16000k is exactly the same as the source file, because we don't want any loss!!

-b:a = audio bitrate, this value of 192k is exactly the same as the source file, because we don't want any loss!!

ALTERNATIVE

I also found this commandline, worked very well:

ffmpeg-kino -threads 2 -i 00120.MTS -s 720x576 -r pal -aspect 16:9 -ac 2 -ar 48000 -pix_fmt yuv420p -y 00120.MTS.dv

Another commandline:

ffmpeg -y -i 00141.MTS -vcodec mpeg4 -b:v 8000000 -ab 128000 -s 1280x720 new2.mp4
ffmpeg -y -i 00101.MTS -vcodec mpeg4 -b:v 14M -acodec ac3 -ab 192k new.mp4 <-- deze gebruikt om .MTS in kdenlive te importeren

dus:

for i in *; do ffmpeg -y -i "$i" -vcodec mpeg4 -b:v 14M -acodec ac3 -ab 192k "$i".mp4; done

Convert to WebM (VP8)

A valid WebM file can only contain VP8 video and Vorbis audio in a .webm container.

ffmpeg -i bla.mp4 -vcodec libvpx -b:v 15M -acodec libvorbis -b:a 192k out.webm

For web page (reduced size):

# ffmpeg -i 44.mp4 -s 568x320 -vcodec libvpx -b:v 300k -acodec  libvorbis -b:a 64k 44.webm

Convert an .MTS file to Flash (FLV)

ffmpeg -i bla.mts -s 640x360 -ar 22050 -b:v 1M blaat.flv

of pas de bitrate aan voor hogere kwaliteit:

ffmpeg -i bla.mts -s 640x360 -ar 22050 -b:v 3M blaat.flv

Convert an old analogue letterbox recording to SD digital format

The input file was

Input #0, mpeg, from '1106_20091226203000.mpg':                                                                                                                                           
  Duration: 04:24:55.20, start: 0.276144, bitrate: 6934 kb/s
    Stream #0.0[0x1e0]: Video: mpeg2video (Main), yuv420p, 720x576 [PAR 64:45 DAR 16:9], 8000 kb/s, 25 fps, 25 tbr, 90k tbn, 50 tbc
    Stream #0.1[0x1c0]: Audio: mp2, 48000 Hz, stereo, s16, 384 kb/s

and the picture has big black borders on the top and bottom and looks squashed. It was supposed to be stretched to fill up the screen (Our old analogue TV did that automatically).

This must be done in 2 steps: first the cropping, then rescaling back to 16:9

The first command is

ffmpeg -i input.mpg -vf crop=720:430 -vcodec mpeg2video -b:v 8M -acodec mp2 -b:a 384k 25ycrop.mpg

Note that we try to keep the audio/video exactly the same as the sourcefile. The commandline options -sameq and -vcodec copy don't seem to work here.

Next we must scale the video back to full screen, again the same settings for vcodec and acodec:

ffmpeg -i 25ycrop.mpg -s 720x576 -aspect 16:9 -vcodec mpeg2video -b:v 8M -acodec mp2 -b:a 384k bla.mpg

Other examples

 # ffmpeg -i 00039.MTS -f avi -vcodec mpeg4 -b:v 16000 bla.wmv
 # ffmpeg -i 00039.MTS -f avi -vcodec msmpeg4v2 -b:v 16000 bla.wmv
 # ffmpeg -y -i VIDEO0005.3gp  -vcodec wmv2 -f avi  -ar 44100 kerst2009.avi

 # ffmpeg -formats            -> lists formats
 # ffmpeg -f avi              -> force avi format
 # ffmpeg -codecs             -> lists codecs
 # ffmpeg -vcodec mpeg4       -> use codec
 # ffmpeg -acodec libmp3lame  -> use mp3 audio codec
 # ffmpeg -i <inputfile>      -> show info about movie file
 # ffmpeg -y                  -> overwrite outputfiles
 # ffmpeg -vcodec copy -ss 00:01:00 -t 00:03:00 -i infile.mpg outfile.mpg -> this cut the file from 1 minute to 4 minutes (t=duration)
or
 # ffmpeg -i inputfilename.mpg -sameq -ss 00:01:00 -t 00:03:00 outfile.mpg
The above will extract 3 minutes of mpg file from the 1 minute mark using same quality as the source file. This is useful for Variable Bit Rate (VBR) encoded files.
 # ffmpeg -target dvd|vcd|svcd|dv|dv50  -> all options are set automagically, but you can overrule as long as they don't conflict w/ the standard
          -r  --> set framerate, default = 25. also 'pal' is accepted
          -threads --> set thread count
 # ffmpeg -i 00090.MTS -f avi -b 6000k -ab 192k -vcodec mpeg2video 00090.mpg
    convert MTS to XBOX readable format

Sharpening

Using the -vf option.

# Strong luma sharpen effect parameters
unsharp=7:7:2.5

PvdM: dit betekent [unsharp @ 0x64f7c0] effect:sharpen type:luma msize_x:7 msize_y:7 amount:2.50

# Strong blur of both luma and chroma parameters
unsharp=7:7:-2:7:7:-2

# Use the default values with ffmpeg
./ffmpeg -i in.avi -vf "unsharp" out.mp4

PvdM: dit betekent [unsharp @ 0x64f7a0] effect:sharpen type:luma msize_x:5 msize_y:5 amount:1.00

Example:

ffmpeg -i part1.dv -vf "unsharp" -target dvd test2.mpg

Timestamps

To set the timestamp of the file to the video's internal creation date/time, you can use:

exiftool '-CreateDate>FileModifyDate' FILE 

To force a date/time when converting:

ffmpeg -i 00041.MTS -vcodec mpeg4 -acodec copy -timestamp 2000012312:21:34 bla.mp4

Split video files

ffmpeg -i input.mpg -ss 00:00:10 -t 00:00:30 out1.mpg

-ss is the start point in hh:mm:ss from the beginning of your video file

-t is the length of time in hh:mm:ss of your new segment.

So, in the above example, you're starting 10 seconds in from the beginning of the original file and ending 30 seconds later.

If you want to create multiple parts in one pass then the following should work:

ffmpeg -i input.mpg -ss 00:00:10 -t 00:00:30 out1.mpg -ss 00:00:35 -t 00:00:30 out2.mpg

In this example, the first segment is the same as the first example, but you're also creating a second file starting at 35 seconds in and being 30 seconds long.

Remember to use the correct encoding:

ffmpeg -i input.mpg -ss 00:00:10 -vcodec copy -acodec copy output.mpg

Cut an avi file from second 1 to 12.9.

mencoder -ss 00:01 -endpos 00:12.900 -ovc copy -oac copy -o out.avi in.avi

Merge video files

To merge 2 or more files, use the 'cat' command and pipe it through ffmpeg, like this:

cat 1.mpg 2.mpg | ffmpeg (-f mpeg) -i – -vcodec copy -acodec copy outfile.mpg

Unfortunately, this does not work. Again, mencoder to the rescue:

mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy -o output.mp4 1.mp4 2.mp4

Flip video files

hflip and vflip

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vf hflip,vflip,format=yuv420p -codec:v libx264 -preset medium -crf 23 -codec:a copy output.mkv

The above did not work, but this did:

ffmpeg -i VID_20130915_110755.mp4 -vf transpose=2,transpose=2 output.mp4

create timelapse movie

To create a timelapse movie from images in a directory, use:

mencoder "mf://*.jpg" -mf fps=5 -o test.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=msmpeg4v2:vbitrate=1000

I know, this is mencoder, but it works.

FFmpeg uses the following format:

ffmpeg -f image2 -r 10 -b:v 1M -i %03d.jpg test2.mp4

but this doesn't work. Also it requires the imagefilenames to be of name 001.jpg - 999.jpg, which is not always the case.

Rename files sequentially

cnt=1;for i in `ls *.jpg`; do mv ${i} ${cnt}.jpg;cnt=$((cnt+1)); done

DVD

Re-encode for DVD use

# mythreplex --demux --fix_sync -o /data/stream -v 224 -c 128 "/data/newfile2.mpg
# tcrequant /data/stream.mv2 /data/video.small.m2v 1.17052143685

Pull Chapters from VOB

You can pull chapters from VOB files using mplayer. Here's a command line to pull chapter 3 from the DVD drive and dump it to a VOB.

mplayer dvd:// -chapter 3-3 -dumpstream -dumpfile 3.vob

Rip VOB to mpeg4

and deinterlace as well.

ffmpeg -i VTS_01_1.VOB -vcodec mpeg4 -b:v 10M -acodec copy -deinterlace lan1deinterlaced.mp4

Rip VOB to DV

The following command will rip a VOB file strait from an unencrypted DVD and convert it to a strait DV file.

ffmpeg -i /cdrom/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_1.VOB -target dv /home/joel/Videos/game_vi.dv

Rip VOB to DVD

The following command will rip a VOB file to an MPEG2 video with AC3 audio for a DVD. It also uses the '-sameq' option which uses the same quality factor in the encoder as in the decoder, allowing almost lossless encoding.

ffmpeg -i myfile.vob -target dvd -sameq myfile.mpg

Rip VOB to VCD

The following command will rip a VOB file to a MPEG1 video with MP1 audio.

ffmpeg -i myfile.vob -target vcd myfile.mpg

Rip VOB to Flash (FLV)

The following command will rip a VOB file to 352×240 (the same size as VCD) and will save it as a flash file.

ffmpeg -i myfile.vob -s 352x240 myfile.flv


Convert .dsf files (SACD) to standard .wav files (PCM - CD quality)

ffmpeg -i 04.dsf -acodec pcm_s16le -ar 44100 -ac 2 output.wav

This however, does not give enough audio quality.

The Golden Line:

ffmpeg -i input.dsf -acodec pcm_s24le -ar 44100 -ac 2 44100_24.wav

I have tried it with 32 bits and with 88200 and higher, could not hear it.

Create multichannel WAVs or FLACs

This command will 'rip' the first 5 minutes (which is the first song actually) of a quadraphonic (4.0) .WAV file that is 45 minutes long:

ffmpeg -i The\ Doobie\ Bothers-\ Toulouse\ Street.wav -acodec pcm_s16le -b:a 1400k -ss 0:0:0 -t 0:5:0 -ac 4 -map_channel 0.0.0 -map_channel 0.0.1 -map_channel 0.0.4 -map_channel 0.0.5 output.wav -y

The resulting file 'output.wav' will be a multichannel wav with the following channel order:

1. front left

2. front right

3. rear left

4. rear right

When loaded into audacity, and then when exported into either .WAV or .FLAC move the channel slider to 6 channels and the following channel mix must be done:

output 1 -> channel: 1

output 2 -> channel: 2

output 3 -> channel: 5

output 4 -> channel: 6

Channel identification

Standard speaker channels

This table shows the various speaker configurations that are commonly used for end-user equipment. The order and identifiers are those specified for the channel mask in the standard uncompressed WAV file format (which contains a raw multichannel PCM stream) and are used according to the same specification for most PC connectible digital sound hardware and PC operating systems capable of handling multiple channels. While it is certainly possible to build any speaker configuration, there isn't a lot of commercially available movie or music content for alternative speaker configurations. Such cases, however, can be worked around by remixing the source content channels to the speaker channels using a matrix table specifying how much of each content channel is played through each speaker channel.

where

  • 512k gives rather bad image
  • 1M gives perfect image
  • 768k hits the sweetspot
  • -dmix_mode loro is used for downmixing surround sound

Note, the names of encoders and decoders do not always match, so there are
several cases where the above table shows encoder only or decoder only entries
even though both encoding and decoding are supported. For example, the h263
decoder corresponds to the h263 and h263p encoders, for file formats it is even
worse.

Channel name Identifier Index Flag 1.0 Mono<ref group="Note">For historical reasons, when using (1.0) mono sound, often in technical implementations the first (left) channel is used, instead of the center speaker channel, in many other cases when playing back multichannel content on a device with a mono speaker configuration all channels are downmixed into one channel. The way standard mono and stereo plugs used for common audio devices are designed ensures this as well.</ref> 2.0 Stereo<ref group="Note">Stereo (2.0) is still the most common format for music, as most computers, television sets and portable audio players only feature two speakers, and the red book Audio CD standard used for retail distribution of music only allows for 2 channels. A 2.1 speaker set does generally not have a separate physical channel for the low frequency effects, as the speaker set downmixes the low frequency components of the two stereo channels into one channel for the subwoofer.
