Convert video for phones, iPods, DVDs

By   |  December 18, 2007

Need to convert a video file to a DVD template? Or your favourite song to a ringtone? WinFF is a graphical front end for FFMpeg and converts just about any multimedia format to another, including to phone ringtones, DVD formats and Flash files.

Written in Free Pascal and Lazarus, WinFF is available for both Linux and Windows.

The one reason to get WinFF is that it removes the guesswork from converting multimedia files using the command line FFMpeg. Remembering all the correct switches at the command line version is mostly hit or miss. Using WinFF most of the options (bitrate, de-interlace etc) are available in the main window.

The other reason to get WinFF is that is it capable of converting multiple formats at once. So, for example, you can convert MPEGs, FLVs, and MOVs into AVIs in one go.

On Linux, particularly Ubuntu which ships with a restricted set of codecs, getting WinFF to work properly may require a little extra work. Details on how to get these codecs to work are available on the WinFF site here.
