How to convert a video file for the MEMUP Wizzle portable video player

Posted by on Sunday, 11 July, 2010

I own a really cheap MEMUP Wizzle video player. It plays regular mp3 files, but it’s not simple to get videos to run on it.
This device uses a AVI video compression codec (sherpya mencoder-mingw) with some strange options (version 1.0, based Xvid 1.1 video with 20 fps and audio codec 0x0050 mpeg1 layer 2, 44100khz and sample rate 128kbs)
After some research, I found that you can convert your videos easily with, surprise surprise, mencoder 🙂 !

This works perfectly under Linux and even on other OSs (so said, I did not test it).

Here is the command line to convert a video:

mencoder -noodml INPUT_FILE -of avi -o OUTPUT_FILE.avi -ofps 20 -vf-add scale=320:240 -vf-add expand=320:240:-1:-1:1 -srate 44100 -ovc xvid -xvidencopts bitrate=600:max_bframes=0:quant_type=h263:me_quality=4 -oac lavc -lavcopts acodec=mp2:abitrate=128

Replace INPUT_FILE and OUTPUT_FILE with the filenames you wish to convert from and to.
