I installed Avidemux (from the Ubuntu packages list), and able to convert my movie files for Nokia E71.

Definitely lot easier to use than mencoder. 😀

    Could you tell us the configuration you used with avidemux?

    I can’t remember how exactly I did it. However, the key here is to understand the capability of the phone. The resolution and the frame rate of the movie needs to be converted to the stated capability of the movie player in the phone.

    found a few ffmpeg posts and after a few unsuccessful attempts, I have found a solution.

    to encode an avi to to an nokia e71 recognized mp4 format:

    ffmpeg -y -i inputFILE.avi -acodec aac -ab 72k -s 320×176 -aspect 16:9 -vcodec h264 -b 300k -qcomp 0.6 -qmin 16 -qmax 51 -qdiff 4 -flags +loop -cmp +chroma -subq 7 -refs 6 -g 250 -keyint_min 25 -rc_eq ‘blurCplx^(1-qComp)’ -sc_threshold 40 -me_range 12 -i_qfactor 0.71 -directpred 3 outputFILE.mp4

    original file was 700MB, resulting mp4 encoded file slightly less then half @300MB…quality is excellent

    even though I don’t foresee watching many video’s on this amazing phone, I thought I would share my findings…

    if your wondering on the source avi properties:
    $ file aviinputFILE.avi
    inputFILE.avi : RIFF (little-endian) data, AVI, 632 x
    258, 23.98 fps, video: DivX 5, audio: MPEG-1 Layer 3 (stereo, 48000 Hz)
