I've got some 1080p movies on my Ubuntu system, which I'd like to trasfer to my Android phone for when I'm in a situation where I have nothing to do (like an absent teacher at school). My phone screen has a resolution of 480*320.
I've tried this command;
ffmpeg -i movie.mp4 -vf scale=480:ih*480/iw downsized.mp4
And it changes the resolution of the video, but the file is not as small as I'd like it to be. What else can I do to get the file as small as possible? Perhaps change the audio quality and framerate to something lower (I'm guessing 1080p video has better audio quality than my phone's sound card supports anyway). I'd like to keep the sound at the best quality the phone supports and the human ear can still hear. I'd also like to convert the sound from surround to stereo. Is there perhaps a different file format that's smaller and supported by Android 2.3?
Thanks in advance.
