Convert mkv (mjpeg) to mpeg4

Wes Miller
Hi,

Is this a correct way to convert an mjpeg in a .mkv into an mpeg4 file?

     gst-launch filesrc location="xyz.mkv" ! matroskademux ! ffenc_mpeg4 ! filesink location="xyz.mpg"

Thanks,

Wes

Well, I added some to the pipeline.  The output file is there but it doesn't show anything when I play it.

     gst-launch  filesrc location=1.mkv ! matroskademux ! videorate ! jpegdec ! ffmpegcolorspace ! ffenc_mpeg4 ! filesink location=1.mpg

  Might want to use a container format, no ?

"MPEG4" is a bit ambigious, it refers to video codecs as well as a
container format.

You should really put encoded video into a container format, such as
matroska (matroskamux), MP4/ISO/Quicktime (mp4mux) or, if you absolutely
have to, AVI (avimux).

Also, if your matroska files contain MJPEG, you will need a decoder
between matroskademux and ffenc_mpeg4. Encoders can usually not encode
straight from JPEG format.

Cheers

Thanks!  This worked.  

     gst-launch  filesrc location=1.mkv ! matroskademux ! videorate ! jpegdec ! ffmpegcolorspace ! ffenc_mpeg4 ! mp4mux ! filesink location=1.mpg

So when i see an MPG file (that i didn't make <grin>) is it likely to be a container file even though the extension seems to say it's raw mp<something>g?  Guess that wouldd explain why the same file extension opens different players.

Again, thanks!
