…with an open minded approach

Compress your mobile video files to mp4 (x264 + mp3)

My mobile phone records videos with an astonishing 100MBytes/minute… this is because the video is saved with almost no compression at all… So I made this little script to compress a video file with x264 (video compression) and mp3 (audio compression) and store it in a MP4 container.

It uses the “avconv” executable which comes with the ubuntu package “libav-tools” – if you dont have it, you can install with “sudo apt-get install libav-tools”
