Transcoding video formats and codecs that are supported by the currently installed DirectShow filters to AMV format. Tested with ffdshow and MatroskaFilter for AVI and Matroska files with XviD video and MP3 audio. This has been tested in earlier Wine releases starting from 0.9.7.
What does not
Encoding will be slow if the window is not minimised during the encoding process, because the video preview eats CPU time. Transcoding QuickTime video crashes (with QuickTime 6 installed and working). Builtin quartz.dll crashes, NULL pointer dereference in CopyMediaType.
What was not tested
Everything was tested.
Before using: Install Windows Media Player 9 (WMP 10 may work but was not tested) Copy native msxml.dll, quartz.dll and qedit.dll to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 Run 'regsvr32 msxml.dll && regsvr32 qedit.dll' Add DLL override for quartz.dll Install ffdshow and any other DirectShow filters for the video formats you want to convert from See http://www.s1mp3.org/wiki/index.php/Video_encoding#How_to_encode_on_Unix_or_Linux for full instructions on using the AMV tools in Wine.
