It mostly depends on what exactly you want. Let me explain: while transcode supports h264 encoding, it not yet supports the mpeg4 container. So, if h264 in avi is enough (to be, maybe, later be reencapsulated in mpeg), you're set :) otherwise, no luck :( If h264 in avi would suffice, you can use: - the h264 encoder through ffmpeg (1.0.x, 1.1.x, HEAD): $ transcode -i source.mpg -y ffmpeg -F h264 -o out.avi ... - the h264 encoder directly (1.1.x, HEAD): $ transcode -i source.mpg -y x264,lame,avi -o out.avi ...
