Description:

This is a final - working - version of my script, which I use to convert files supported by ffmpeg to MOV format, supported by my iPod Video G5.

Everything was tested to be easy to use (finally, after installation). If You have any problems with it, just let me know - I'll try to help as far as I can.

INSTALLATION:
Just download "avi2mov" script, and save it in /usr/sbin/ directory (You can save it in any directory, but take care later, because i assume, you've saved it in /usr/sbin/ :) ).

After this, You need to set proper permissions, so use chmod:

chmod +x /usr/sbin/avi2mov

Finally, You need to add this converter to Service Menu. Create file

/usr/kde/3.5/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/convert-avi-to-mov.desktop

with Kate for example, and copy and paste this code:

[desktop Action MediaConvertFile]
Exec=/usr/sbin/avi2mov %U
Icon=reload
Name=Convert selected file to mov ...
[desktop Entry]
Actions=MediaConvertFile
Encoding=UTF-8
Icon=reload
ServiceTypes=video/*
ExcludeServiceTypes=kdedevice

And that's all! :)

mp4 is indeed also a video format. ipod videos use them and so do PSPs

mp4 is also an audio-only format.

You're absolutely right. But after all, this script works, i've just made a mistake, because mainly i've used it to convert files to mov format, not to mp4, and i haven't done extracting an audio from movie to mp4 yet.
