Project Description
Windows Media Center to iPod video converter is an application that wraps ffmpeg.exe and uses it to convert dvr-ms files to mp4 files suitable for playback on an iPod or iPhone.

The second alpha release is up. It now has an installer !

It is released under the LGPL liscence as it includes ffmpeg.exe in the distribution.

Internally the converter converts the file by calling ffmpeg.exe using the following command line.

ffmpeg.exe -i input -acodec libfaac -ab 128kb -vcodec mpeg4 -b 1200kb -mbd 2 -flags 4mvtrell -aic 2 -cmp 2 -subcmp 2 -s 480x320 -title X output.mp4

Where input is the input file, X is the title of the video that will appear in iTunes and output.mp4 is the output file name.

You can obtain ffmpeg.exe from here

There is currently no indication of the progress of your conversion. I suggest that you leave the show output option checked. This feature will come in a future release.
