This is an app idea has been in the mind for quite a few months. I am busy with work and study, but finally it’s ready for release.
Previously I did some work to port ffmpeg to android platform as an app, I received a dozen of positive feedback. But many of them suggest the UI could be better. Now hopefully this app can help.
It’s the first release for this app, but I think it’s already very powerful. 🙂 The app is capable of converting almost any commonly-used video formats to videos playable by Android system default player. The list of codecs is supports include (but not limited to) asf, avi, divx, flv, m2v, m4v, mjpeg, mkv, mov, mpg, ogg, ogv, rm, rmvb, webm, wmv etc.
I’m planning to allow user to configure more about the output video settings, like resolution, codec format, container format, etc. Also an ffmpeg command line interface might be provided for advanced users. It might take some time for these features to be ready, as I’m still busy with work and study. As always, feel free to suggest or feedback anything!
Side Note: I did a search on video converter, only a few apps exist. Their method is to upload the video to some remote server, convert the videos there, and then download the video to the device. Hope Video Converter Android can help some users who don’t want to do that.
