|ffmpegGUI v1.2 - a GUI front end for the OS4 compile of the ffmpeg program.|
Version 1.2 adds a tab page to support mapping file streams as well as well as a menu to play the video files with an external player specified by the VPLAYER tooltype. (ie. MPlayer or DvPlayer). Also added support for the -shortest command.
See below for a full list of changes.
Version 1.2 (Released version)
Added VPLAYER tooltype to specify a video player that can be launched from ffmpegGUI.
(CAUTION: The Special version of DvPlayer does not appear to exit cleanly if the video type
is not supported. This can cause ffmpegGUI to hang. The registered version is fine.)
Added a "Play File" menu that allows playing the "Input 0", "Input 1", or "Output" files via
an external player. Tested with DvPlayer and Mplayer. If using Mplayer it's suggested to
use the -quiet or -really-quiet options. (See ffmpegGUI docs.)
Added Disable Video (-vn) gadget to support easier stripping of audio from movies.
Added "Map Streams" tab to support mapping of one video stream with up to 3 audio streams.
(Note: Mapping was limited to one video stream due to the Amiga version of ffmpeg having
problems when trying to add a second video stream.)
Added support for a second input file. Now supports Infile0 and Infile1.
Added check to ensure output file is not the same as either input file.
Added INFILE1 tooltype to provide default Input1 file.
Added INFILE0 tooltype to provide default Input0 file. IFILE is still supported for
compatability but will be overridden by INFILE0.
Added ability to clear Input0, Input1 and Output filenames by canceling the file requester.
Cleaned up "Input File Info" output and added support for second input file.
Added support for "-shortest" command which ends encoding when end of the shortest input
stream is reached.
Added "Flash (YouTube)-->avi" selection to Quick Setup menu to convert YouTube flash (.flv)
files to a roughly equivelent size and quality avi file.
