Convert Flash Videos on a directory to MP4

/ Published in: Bash
Save to your folder(s)

This will convert videos to MP4 that's optimized and plays on my phone. The said videos should be stored on a directory so this script could parse them.

Requires unstripped codecs from the Medibuntu repository (libavcodec-unstripped-52, libavdevice-unstripped-52, libavformat-unstripped-52, etc.) which contains the MP4 and libfaac Encoders. See: and

This script also requires the libnotify1 package for the notify-send command (or you can just echo it, instead of using the desktop notification daemon)

Update the ffmpeg statement as needed, check the documentation at
