Do more: Transcode/Convert
Authored by: lucite on Nov 07, '04 09:55:42AM

Hi,

Using the same --sout syntax you can actually take an existing file (vs. a stream) and convert it to an .avi file. You can probably transcode/convert into other formats - the vlc doc supports this - but I haven't properly tried thus far.

The one I really want to try is taking a DVD and converting it into an .avi/divx/etc. - if you've tried this, please post your results.

P.S. be sure to let vlc finish it's work before trying to open the apparently finished new movie when converting - the file size is deceptive: vlc just claims that amount of space at the beginning of the conversion.
