Compress Canon IXUS 860 IS videos

  • Configure your /etc/apt/sources.list, add this line:
    deb stable main
  • Install the debian-multimedia repository's public key:
    sudo apt-get install debian-multimedia-keyring
  • Install transcode :
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install transcode
  • Supposing your input video is mvi_0004.avi and you want to convert it into test.avi using XVID codec, just type:
    transcode -i mvi_0004.avi -o test.avi -y xvid

Tip: do not use the same filename for -i and -o options. I got strange results with the video sound…

Tip 2: this simple command can be used to convert all the AVI in a directories hierarchy

find . -name "*.AVI" -exec transcode -i {} -o {}.xvid -y xvid \;

Notice: if you need a nice user interface, just install avidemux
