Is there a program/software for OS/2 that will convert AVI or MOV (or both?) to MPEG? (one movie file format to another).

Tom, I found VCD Gear at Hobbes, no clue about how good it is. But, it seems like a new apps since it was from 2002, or something. Check that out. The description doesn't mention AVI to Mpeg. But worth a testdrive.

I will give it a try. Thanks for the information and the url.

PS I have seen software for Win that does it. I thought of trying them with OS/2 Warp and ODIN but I will try VCDGear a tryfirst.


OS/2 Warp-ed to the very end.

For Win you should try out FlaskMPEG I think it also can convert from AVI to MOV. Not really sure. But, another software that is really great that can handle this is Cleaner costs around $300 but is really great. More or less no loss at all in quality and as well there is supported hardware inf one need some speed as well.

But, here it would be nice to see a port of any kind of *nix software to OS2 for above mentioned topic.

I did a http://www.google.com search using 'avi mpg convert' and found some programs to convert one to the other (mostly Win stuff but one had the source code too).

VCDGear can also be found at http://www.vcdgear.com where there is a version for many different platforms.

Good old Main Actor was another apps I was thinking about but couldn't figure out the name. But, main problem here is that it's a dead product and you need to have it registered to get it to work proper for serious work.

Well, it's a dead product and you need to have a registered version of it to get it to work fully. Else from that there is no problems - works fine as you point out.
