Thanks also to Peter Swallow (Swoop) for his great work testing ffmpeg and ffmpegGUI!

Here are the change notes for ffmpgGUI v2.1 which includes a list of many of the new codec's and formats supported by the new ffmpeg. Note that ffmpeg also now properly decodes ac3 audio typically included with DVD's.

Version 2.1 (Released Version)
Added USE_KINGCON tooltype to allow using kingCon cousole for output.
Modified to close console output window when 'Ok' is clicked on the done
requester.
Added high definition video bitrates: 548k, 12000k, 16000k, 24000k and 36000k

Organized "Predifined Setups" directory into sub directories.

Modifications to support ffmpeg SNV-r16701:
Added check for required ffmpeg version number. Still allows running other
versions
but unsupported items will not work and I removed workarounds to avoid crashes
Added routines to handle differences in commands for new ffmpeg.
(audio codecs: mp3 to libmp3lame and arm_nb to libarm_nb)
Added new video size choice of 704x576 to support arm_nb/wb video codecs.
Added support for arm_wb audio codec via libarm_wb encoder. (Higher Quality
for older cell phones.)
Added support for new audio bitrates now enforced for arm_nb/wb audio codecs.
(arm_nb - 7.4k, and 12.2k; arm_wb - 15.85k and 23.85k )
Updated Cellphone saved settings files to use compatable audio bitrates.
Changed Cellphone quick setup menu presets to use compatable audio bitrates.
Removed workaround for padding crash defect when used with mpeg1video codec.
(Seems fixed with new version but will now crash with old version.)
Added requester for indicating libmp3lame error reported by ffmpeg is Ok.

Added support for the following file formats:
.ogg (Audio / Video format)
.m4a (ipod audio file format)
.bmp and %5d.bmp (graphic file format)
.tiff and %5d.tiff (graphics file format)

Added support for the following video codecs:

Added support for the following audio codecs:
aac (iPod / PSP)
alac (iPod lossless)
flac (free lossless audio)
vorbis (ogg audio)

Added the following to the predefined setup files:
(NOTE: Where indecated, not tested on devices since I don't have any.
Feedback?)

Slight correction. Where the news item says ffmpegGUI v1.2 it should read ffmpegGUI v2.1. Sorry for the typo.

Yep, and more. Do an ffmpeg -formats in a shell to see all the supported formats and codecs. The list is long! A 'D' next to the format indicates that format can be decoded. An 'E' next to the format means it can be encoded.

To encode in an xvid or divx format, set the video codec to mpeg4,
then in the "additional options" field type '-vtag DIVX' without the quotes.
Don't forget to press enter. This sets the tag so the player knows how to decode the video.

I guess it is corrected, but I could only find one typo.

Well, it's not listed as a supported container format in the output of the ffmpeg -formats command but the best way to find out is to try it.

So, I loaded and input file, set the Output Format to "Use File Ext" added a .mkv to the output file name. To my suprise it encoded the video just fine and MPlayer was able to play it back without an trouble. It appears the audio equivelant, .mka, is supported as well. By default it encodes the video in Mpeg4 and audio in mp2 but it is a very flexible container format and can accept most audio and video codecs. Give it a try and see. If all goes well, let me know and I'll them as supported formats from ffmpegGUI.

So has anyone really had no problems with this? I wanted to try the new version so stupid as I did overwrote my old version. Now it doesn't work! FFMpegGUI is broken on my system.

It keeps saying "Error: libraries did not open properly!" Well that's a start but which one?! A little more info please!

So I Snoopyed it and found it was looking for a textfield.gadget. Well, where is this gadget? It's not on my system. It's not on OS4 Depot. Aminet? It's not on my OS4.1 CD so why don't have have it? What is going on here??
