done, a long list will appear on your DOS screen and you will be back at the
command prompt again.
+<li> Next step is adding sound to your video file. Run the tool avi2wav using the format:
+ avi2wav [input.avi] [output.wav]
+ For example, if your original file is called "filename" then you'd put in the following:
+ avi2wav filename.avi filename.wav
+ OPTIONAL: You can name the output differently.
+<li> The extracted audio file must be in mp3 format, so you have to convert the WAV file into MP3.
+ One option is using the LAME codec. You can download the win32 binary from <a
+ href=""></a>
+ One format used with LAME (good quality/size) is:
+ lame --preset standard [input.wav] [output.mp3]
+ For example, if your audio file is called "filename" then you'd put in the following:
+ lame --preset standard filename.wav filename.mp3
+ OPTIONL: You can name the output differently. Also, you can use other wav to mp3 tool, or even use
+ other options in the lame command. The --preset standard will give you a VBR file, so if you want a
+ CBR file, just change the preset to --preset cbr [kbps], where [kbps] is the Constant Bit Rate desired.
+<li> Now we have to merge the sound with the video, so run the rvf_mux tool found
+ in the packet you've downloaded, using the format:
+ rvf_mux [option] [videoinput.rvf] [audioinput.mp3] [output.rvf]
+ For example, if your video file from step 6 is called "filename.rvf" and the audio file from step 7
+ is called "filename.wav" then you'd put in the following:
+ rvf_mux filename.rvf filename.mp3 filename_av.rvf
+ NOTE: You can use any name for the output file, but it's recomended that the name is not the same name
+ used in the input video file.
+ You can change the frames per second of Rockbox playback using the -play_fps [fps] option. The default
+ value is 67.0 fps.
<li> Copy the .rvf output to your jukebox, load up a recent daily build and
plugins, and kick back and watch the movie!
