I’m doing a little bit of research on converting movies with ffmpeg on linux (ubuntu).

first install ffmpeg and mplayer :
sudo apt-get ffmpeg mplayer

then you can convert videos simply with this command..

ffmpeg -i -b 400 teaser_hi.flv

the -i is the input file
the -b is the bitrate.. in kpbs

now to generate thumbnails of a movie

ffmpeg -i -y -s 320×240 -r 0.05 %d.jpg

I still have to understand these options..
