Title: AVxCAT (formerly FFMPEGCA) version 1.2.0
Post by: CDRWSel on 2011.03.04, 04:24:53
AVxCAT major release 1.2.0 is out
This is an Audio Video eXtended Conversion Authoring Tool using FFMPEG as main tool
It is a very nice GUI with lot of possibilities. 
- Convert not protected DVD film into portable codec (full film or any vob file)
- Convert Audio-CD to any supported audio codec (mp3, ogg, wav, flac etc...)
  With cddb (cddb2wav) support or not
- Convert any audio/video files to any audio supported codec
- Convert any audio/video files to any video supported codec
- Preserves IDTAGs or Metadatas is possible (codec dependant)
- Create slideshow or animation out of pictures
- Create video chapters and presentation (with possible) sub-titles
- Create user profiles to accommodate end-user most used options
- Apply VoiX filters
etc...

Added corrections and new function makes this release a main release.
I hope Jep could try it to create his OS2 mpeg1 video (this released one agains the test one has the codec type for animation enabled which allow to change from default FLV (Flash) to an other format like AVI etc...

Regards,
Remy

Note: If any bugs are found, please use the write to author option. This one should work with thunderbird or PMMail.

For those interested by mp3 "normalize" option using mp3gain automatically called by AVxCAT could send me an email and I'll provide them the test build (futur) and howto proceed.

Cheers

Hello Remy! Is the "VoiX" in this post related to my VoiX port for OS/2? I'd be really happy :)

Hi,

The VoiX beta5 doesn't have enabled stdout nor stdin etc...
 
Andy Willis took the provided source and made all needed updates and his build works now with stdin, stdout and correct binary/ascii mode for FFMPEG stdin compatibility.

Of course, according the licence, all information are provided as well the source code of it and
Because VoiX doesn't use much space, this special build is included

Of course, it was a very nice idea porting VoiX and now, it is going better... Great thanks  

Process:
any input file (except wav)
1/ ffmpeg to wav (audio stream only)
2/ VoiX filter apply if available
3/ ffmpeg to final choice format
All is done in one command using stdin/stdout (pipe)

For wav, first ffmpeg isn't used

Ps: Next AVxCAT should have enabled mp3gain option (in transparency mode. That is, as soon mp3gain is found under AVxCAT, it enables a special "Auto" volume level (using -r -k options) and final step will call mp3gain (for mp3 and may be aac !).
This futur update will have AAC extension .aac renamed to .m4a (which is the right non protected extension = ipod)

I'm comming back as soon tests are finalized.

Kind regards,
Remy

Mentore, I had also sent you an email about the changes... it may have gone into a spam bucket or something.

No problem for it, you didn't need my permission to work on my port. Instead, I'm really glad to know that some of my little experiments have been useful!

  Hi AVxCAT has been installed on my harddisk for some months now, but I never really had time to used it until today.
  I am writing to thank you for this great tool for OS/2 and eCS... and to say you can add the "*.rmvb" filter on supported file formats... because I am converting rmvbs to wmvs right now and the result is perfect. :)
  (running version 1.2.4)

   Regards,

   Daniel Caetano

I wanted to try out AVxCAT but have problems when opening files or directories on drives above O:

A DrRexx window pops up but only for a few seconds. See attached. Any clue?

This probably doesn't help much, but I don't have any problems using U:, V:, and W:, in eCS 2.1.

Please, use the email contact included into avxcat.
Describe all step you did and what kind of drives are above O: ?
Thanks and best regards

I often work with drives on T: or V:

Just gave a presentation yesterday at Warpstock on AVxCAT... quite a few were unaware of it but very interested in it and expressed appreciation for it.

Ok, so this is not a known issue then. P, Q, R, S, T, U, V are all regular JFS drives. I've tried different drives from D: to O: which worked. But none of the ones above O:. To bad all my multimedia stuff is on S: which AVxCAT can't open. P: where my programs including AVxCAT are installed is about 30GB. So nothing special. One thing comes to my mind - may it be a problem that I have to many drives? There was an jfs problem with more than 16 (?) drives but I've installed the appropriate fix for it. Is there a similar problem with Rexx?

Probably cant test very much the next days and you will not hear anything from me till start of Nov. But will test afterwards again.

Somehow, that problem tickles a brain cell, but I can't find any information about it, or remember what it was all about.

What version of OS/2 or eCS are you using?

What version of JFS are you using?

What parameters are you using on the IFS lines in CONFIG.SYS?

What kernel are you using?

Exactly what drives, and format, are you using (all of them)?

Have you got
DLLBASING=OFF
near the top of your CONFIG.SYS?

Do you have
EARLYMEMINIT=TRUE
near the top of your CONFIG.SYS?

Many years ago, there was a JFS update that required you to reformat any JFS drives that you had, to actually fix a problem that the JFS update fixed (but I don't think this was one of the symptoms).

Hopefully, something will trigger a memory recall, or give you something to try.

Please Andi,

Could you please issue a "Vol drive_letter:" under a promt command ?  e.g.  "vol P:"
What result do you get ?

What about your reserved drive letter under config.sys ?

Get this build which should issue an error message if required vars for the sysdriveinfo aren't correct
remydodin.levillage.org/outils/avxcat_125_debug.EXE  
add http:// before the link (the file will be left for 2 weeks)

Best regards,
Remy
