New Phone

Well ladies (and gentlmen),
I've moved into the 21st century and replaced my old cell phone with a smart phone. Really wasn't too much of a question when selecting as my criteria was an Android-based phone. Settled in on the Samsung Galaxy and couldn't be much happier. The only issue I've noticed is the wireless doesn't work for 802.11N and haven't had a chance to get it to connect to our wireless router at home.

Anyway....I figured I'd play with converting videos for the phone, the intent of this post. As always, FFMpeg is our tool:

$ ffmpeg -i ./Tosh-001.mpg -s qcif -vcodec h263 -ac 1 -ar 8000 -r 25 -ab 12.2k -y outputfile.3gp

Mount the phone, copy in the output file, unmount and play through the gallery. Easy-peezy.
