This is better than the default software that comes with most of the rockchip players - has more options, and CAN embed subtitles in movies.
MPlayer & MEncoder based.

Download links: The latest version 0.57.3 is here:

ftp://guest%40learnfree%2Eeu:guest@learnfree.eu/vidrop/vidrop-0.57.3-install.msi


Currently there is no helpfile, but the gui is self-explanatory (just look at the hints that show up when you hover the cursor over some option).

Screenshots:




If you encounter bugs, or have comments - send me a PM or post here.

Thanks for sharing this lokster.

Did you create the software yourself? Is there any more information about who created the software etc....?

Yes, I created this software. It's made in the AutoIt scripting language. For those interested - the source code is included in the installer. It's the "viDrop.au3" file.

I must say here, that the encoding itself is made in mencoder. viDrop is just a GUI frontend to mencoder (which is only command line application). And the installer is so big, because it includes mplayer and mencoder.

lokster,

Thanks for sharing this.
Can it convert Real Media files to .avi as well?

Fantastic...no more editing convert.ini files !... thank you...

Is it possible to add a feature whereby a number of files to be converted can be selected at once and then all converted using a single setting selection such as your medium.ini? ... as opposed to having to load each file individually to the batch...thanks...

Your medium.ini setting is what I independently found to work well for my player...the 96 kbps audio is a noticeable improvement over 64 kbps when listening to video using the built in speakers on my OptimusX/Vista rockchip...

This feature already exists - check "Auto add to batch", and then just select all the needed files in windows explorer, and drag&drop them to the green input box.
Finally, hit "Run batch"

This is a very good front-end as far as I can see. Smile

But to make it the best all around add an option to rotate resulting video, which is Mencoder option rotate=2, if I am not wrong.

There is lot of Rockchip devices... and Meizu M6... that work with image rotated to the right.

I am sure you'll be a success!!! Very Happy

Tried converting a video clip for my T29 which uses Xvid too, but could not play. Not very sure where the problem lies.

Is it my computer, that the converted videos do not have sound? i've tried both "mp2" and "copy" options, but the final conversion ends up with no sound.

It`s like an MP3 Player which plays Music CDs only.


T39 doesn''t sound as good as my T29

lokster: Thanks for the reply. Missed having to drop the batch directly on the green box.

A couple of things I've noticed. Will convert flv files but must manually change extension to .avi and sometimes aspect is not 320x240 but could be 320x242 or 318x240. These won't play on my rockchip but if run them through AVIConverter will correct to 320x240 which will play.

Also, for the same file your converter takes about 20% longer to convert than with AVIConverter. Any idea why?

Thanks. Its great to have all the conversion parameters that you've included that can be changed incrementally as well as to have the drag and drop batch function. Well done.

lokster:

Forgot to ask if there is any way to increase audio volume during processing with viDrop?

Thanks.

New version of viDrop available! - 0.51

Fixed some, bugs, added new ones... Smile
A lot of GUI improvements
- added Picture properties control - gamma/brightness/contrast/saturation
- auto update function (download updates from internet)
- encode only selected time interval
- rip DVDs. Note: to rip a DVD you must enter your DVD drive letter in the "Advanced Settings" -> "DVD", and then in "Main settings" -> "Input A/V File" enter "dvd://" (without quotes) and press ENTER. Then convert as usual. For now there are no extended DVD options - no language/subtitle select etc... Maybe in the next version.

If you want to rotate the the picture add "-vf-add rotate=2" in "Advanced settings" -> "Extra mencoder parameters". This will rotate counterclockwise. Add "-vf-add rotate=1" to rotate clockwise.

here are screenhots:



And here is the download link: http://users2.titanichost.com/lokster/en/vidrop-0.51-install.exe (7.7 MB)

@jp - a little delayed answer to your questions - maybe you can increase the volume by checking the "Normalize" option in "Advances settings" -> "Audio".

1. now the output file extension is allways .avi
2. make sure you allways select the Pan&Scan option in "Advanced settings" -> "Resize method"

1. Make sure that your player CAN play AVI files with XVID video and MP2 or MP3 audio. If it can't - this software is not for you.

2. Check the screen resolution of your player, and set the program to use this resolution in the "Advanced settings" in "Video" - Width and Height (this setting is MANDRATORY. You MUST set the proper resolution, otherwise you will get "File format error" when trying to play the file on your player). Set the proper Audio codec - mp2 or mp3. For the rockchip players it's mp2. This setting will also cause "File format error" if incorrect.

3. Go back to "Main settings". In "Input A/V file" enter the filename of the video you want to convert and press enter (OR drag&drop the file from windows explorer to the green input box OR press the "..." button and select the file).

4. If the video is some RIP-ed movie, you can embet subtitles directly in the picture, so you can see them on your player. If the subtitle file has the same filename as the input A/V file, they are automatically detected and opened. Otherwise - you must select them by pressing the "..." button in "Input subtitle".

5. Select the output file - this is the file that will be created, and will be playable on your player. By default it is created in the same directory as the input a/v file, only it has the "_converted.avi" suffix.

Basically, that's all. Hit "Convert" button in "Current file". And wait...

If you want the output file to be smaller, you can lower the video and/or audio bitrate.
For 320x240 videos, video bitrate below 200 is stupid, and over 500 - maybe too high to be played smoothly on our cheap chinese players. The default value of 300 is very good for most purposes.

lokster: Thanks for the program update and revisions. They will be very useful.

Volume during processing can be increased by adding the following into the extra mencoder parameters box in the advanced setting section:

-af volnorm=2:0.7

I'm not sure if this corresponds to the Normalize function that you've already included.

In my Volume normalization I use only -af volnorm
Adding -af volnorm=2:0.7 to the additional parameters will override it. I think that this will do the trick. (I have to check the mencoder manual...)
