Converting mpg to dv



One of the slickest video editing tools I’ve used in linux is kino. The only problem is that it’s geared towards dv files which comes straight from a camcorder (using the dv format.) Most of my video clips are in mpg format…. so there are ways to get it converted… here’s one such suggestion….

ffmpeg -i some.mpeg -s PAL -r PAL -ar 48000 -ac 2 out.dv

of course, you may want to adjust the format (PAL/NTSC) according to your situation.


While I’m on the topic of video conversion in linux: Mplayer is the swiss army knife of sorts and it’s companion mencoder are among the best tools out there for moving from one format to another. This linux.com article details the conversion of most any video file format to a dvd compatible format under linux using these two tools.
