You can convert to audio only formats using youtube-dl itself, although it still downloads the video and then converts it. To do this, use -x or --extract-audio to the command, for example: youtube-dl -x http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iyeUcFKRv4&feature=c4-overview&list=UU1KPy3cAAj0i0RIFC_SzjMg

You can convert existing downloaded files using ffmpeg from the command-line ffmpeg -i "input file.mp4" -acodec copy "output file.aac" The "acodec copy" part is the bit that doesn't change the audio stream.

There are a number video transcoders that you could use to covert mov files to different formats suitable for uploading. Handbreak is a popular one that has both a GUI and command-line version (handbrake-gtk or handbrake-cli). To use Handbreak on Ubuntu, you need to add a PPA: https://edge.launchpad.net/~handbrake-ubuntu/+archive/ppa I personally like, ...

GStreamer is a multimedia framework used from within applications. It is not generally used directly from the command line. FFmpeg also has a set of libraries for use within applications but is mainly known for the ffmpeg command. This program can transcode media files and seems more suitable for what you want to do. To find out how to use ffmpeg, read man ...

A command line alternative to download and immediately convert to a desired format is to send a file downloaded with cclive to avconv with the cclive option --exec. Examples: Download video, then extract the audio track to keep the original encoding: cclive -f best <videolink> --exec "avconv -i '%n' -acodec copy <name>.<extension>" ...

Try with the find command: find /media/Przenośny/transcode/* -exec transcode -J stabilize --mplayer_probe -i {} \; I have to wait ~1min after this message to see the next file to be transcoded: [decoder.c] cancelling the import threads 0:01:24, ( 4, 9| 0, 0| 6, 1) Redirecting with >> is useless as all the logs go to stderr and are pretty verbose ...

YouTube Center is excellent user script, which works accross browsers, doesn't involve bloating your OS with ton of Youtube downloaders unless you're a strictly 320 kbps person for your audio files. Besides, you have Handbrake at your disposal which involves bit of a manual work but will do exactly what you want. :)

Handbrake is actually pretty good for what you intend to do: http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php The PPA for the software centre is here: https://launchpad.net/~stebbins/+archive/handbrake-releases It meets the following criteria: It scans DVDs for non-trivial titles It can include all the audio and subtitle tracks, although not automatically (you have to ...

A workaround is to convert to .mp4 first: avconv -i input.avi -c copy temp.mp4 avconv -i temp.mp4 -c copy output.mkv rm temp.mp4 Sadly, one cannot simply pipe the mp4 format between avconv instances: "[mp4 @ 0x80846c0] muxer does not support non seekable output"

For a proper Ubuntu approach I'd suggest to have a look into ffmpeg (command line). Example: ffmpeg -i infile.wmv -vn -acodec copy outfile.wma Or, if you want an MP3 file: ffmpeg -i infile.avi -vn -ar 44100 -ac 2 -ab 192 -f mp3 outfile.mp3 Also there is another PPA software called Gnac; it's a GNOME software that uses the Gstreamer media framework and ...

Rhythmbox already has this functionality. All you need to do in order to use it is to describe your device for Rhythmbox to know its capabilities. Quote from http://live.gnome.org/Rhythmbox/FAQ : Create a .is_audio_player file on the device. You can set a few fields in this file to override the media-player-info device information like this: ...

avidemux works very well for converting various formats. It is not the easiest program out there, but it does the trick very well. Just open your MP4 file, adjust the output settings to the format you want and click save.

Handbrake is hands down the best video converter out there.

Amarok tries to tell what your media player can play, and if it can't handle what you are trying to put onto it, it transcodes them before transferring them to it. Banshee also can do this, but I have never had any experience with it. You can, however, choose what codec it transcodes into by going to Edit > Preferences > Encoding. In terms of scripting, ...

A guy called Jason has released a Python script makeMKV-Autoripper that does just that. It checks the DVD/BR drive every 5 seconds and calls on MakeMKV when it detects when a DVD/B-R is inserted. It will then fetch information about the movie from IMDB, and finally rip the whole disc. I haven't tested it yet but I am planing on building a headless server ...

You've been duped The so-called "ffmpeg" in the repository is actually from a fork that does not support these filters. See Who can tell me the difference and relation between ffmpeg, libav, and avconv? for more on that. Getting the real thing This means that you'll have to get the real ffmpeg from FFmpeg. Downloading a build If you only want deshake ...

As of this ticket #1979 at ffmpeg bugtracker the simplest solution is to have this bug fixed or to manually add -fflags +genpts to the command line. I.e. change ffmpeg -i inputfile_that_cant_be_muxed_into_mkv.ext -c copy out.mkv to ffmpeg -fflags +genpts -i inputfile_that_cant_be_muxed_into_mkv.ext -c copy out.mkv

My recommendation would be to install & use Ffmpeg not WinFF. sudo apt-get install ffmpeg Once Ffmpeg is installed, open Terminal and paste the command: ffmpeg -i input.mov -sameq output.mp4 Where input.mov & output.mp4 Change the filenames accordingly. That command encodes the video into an .mp4 format but keeps the same quality as the ...

ffmpeg and mencoder decimate all. i compile ffmpeg from source - there are directions for compilation on my blog here: http://aking1012.blogspot.com/2010/10/installing-ffmpeg-and-mplayer-from.html. i have only had to resort to mencoder for some oddities with a couple of ogv videos, otherwise it's ffmpeg for me. These are both command line.
