    Hi everybody,

    I was very happy to see AGAConv for MorphOS on Aminet but I can't use it.

    When I tried to launch a simple conversion (ex: agaconv file.mp4 file.cdxl), it only said : "bin:bash: unknown command" (I have the same error when I launch "agaconv" alone).
    It seems to be a Python script, but I have an error if I launch it with "Python agaconv".

    And if I try with agaconv-converter, I had an error too.

    Is it a problem with my "installation" or the way I use it ?

    Hope someone here uses it and could help me ^^

    Salut

    Essai de remplacer dans le script "agaconv" /bin/bash par sh ou /bin/sh
    ou utilises sh pour lancer le script....

    Hi BeWordl,

    Thank you for your answer but when I replace "/bin/bash" by "/bin/sh" or "sh", I got an error :
    agaconv[149]: syntax error: `((' unexpected

    Or with only "sh" -> agaconv[149]: syntax error: `(' unexpected (I got the same error if I launch it with sh).

    I tried to send an email to Polluks, but my mail never comes to him.

    Maybe someone uses it and succesfully converts video to CDXL ;) I want to make some CDXL videos for my CD32 and my Amiga 1000 ^^

    Thx

    Indeed, SDK's shell does not understand this kind of "for" command.
    As a work-a-round you may use agaconv-encode without the wrapper script...

    Hi Polluks,

    Thank for your answer.

    I tried to use encoder directly but it seems it doesn't like me to put "--in=file.mp4", asking for in file anyway...

    If it's possible, can you give me a step by step protocol ?
    I tried to RTFM but I didn't find mention about MorphOS and I can't find examples anywhere.

    Thx

    For you information
    The script needs ffmpeg to create single images

    ffmpeg is already installed and in my path but it doesn't work.

    If I wrote "agaconv-encode A3000.mp4 --out=text.cdxl", nothing happens.
    If I wrote "agaconv-encode A3000.mp4 --out=text.cdxl", it says : "Error: expected file name, option --in=A3000.mp4 provided."

    Do I need to create single images first ?

    [scratching head] After looking deep in the script, it seems so.[/scratching]

    If I can do something, I'll post an how-to here.

    OK, multiple success tonight ;)

    Extracting images : OK
    Extracting audio : OK (it seems ^^)
    Converting in CDXL : failed...

    In fact, I can't find how to put all images in the command. If I use a joker, AGAConv-encode says "too many file names on command line" (for agaconv-encode, image0001.png is the infile and image0002.png is the outfile...).

    I copy paste my command lines here.
    They need to be improved for sure... and I'm not sure AGAConv can use this image format...

    Extracting images from .mp4 :
    ffmpeg -i test.mp4 -y -r 15 -s 320x200 -pix_fmt rgb24 test/test%04d.png
    (-r 15 : 15 FPS ; -pix_fmt rgb24 : 8 bit without alpha)
    Tried to follow the command in the script but there are a lot of variables and some ffmpeg MorphOS doesn't know some commands...

    Extracting audio from .mp4 :
    ffmpeg -i test.mp4 -ar 28000 -f u8 -acodec pcm_u8 -ac 1 test/test.raw
    (-ar 28000 : 28Khz ; -ac 1 : mono)
    I have a raw file but I can't listen it... so, not sure it's correct

    Converting in CDXL :
    agaconv-encode --cdxl-encode --fps 15 --pcm-file test/test.raw --gfx-mode lores --cdxl-24bit-colors --frequency 28000 --cdxl-padding-size 4 test/test0001.png test.cdxl --status
    (all options from the script)
    Here, the problem is the "infile". With test/test0001.png, it only takes test0001.png and makes the error described above.
    I tried test/test*.png or test/test#?.png, it says "too many files".
    And I tried just test/, it says "std::exception".

    No more for me tonight ;)

    Thx Polluks, but how can I use it ? ;)

    Do I need to put it in the AGAConv script to replace something ?
    Or it's another script ?

    Thx again.

    This is a standard diff:
    "-" remove line
    "+" add line

    However I want to upload a new version...

    Hehe ! I applied the diff with patch command (in GG:bin/) and agaconv almost works now, almost ! ^^

    This is my error message :
    > agaconv --in=A3000.mp4 --out=test.cdxl
    agaconv[430]: [: missing ]
    agaconv[430]: ]: not found
    agaconv[769]: syntax error: `$hamMode=="yes"' missing expression operator

    I looked lines 430 and 769 but not sure what to do.

    I tried again, with help of Movec on EAB too for using agaconv-encode without the script, but it doesn't work for me...

    Sorry to be like Jim Carrey in Dumb & Dumber ^^

    It seems that ffmpeg MorphOS doesn't recognize -hide_banner and -filter_complex commands.

    Polluks : And you, how do you proceed ?

    Do you have a new version of ffmpeg ? Or did you "just" make the MorphOS port of agaconv without using it ?

    BeWorld puts his hands in ffmpeg and seems to progress quickly ! We'll have a new version of ffmpeg soon (and maybe ffplay for streaming) ^^

    I'll try his new version of ffmpeg asap ;)

    Oh yeah ! It's working !
    BeWorld made port of the last version of ffmpeg (still beta but seems working) and with your last agaconv, I just create a cdxl with my "demo.mp4" file.

    I dont' use the script but command lines from movec

    Now, I'll watch these cdxl file on my CD32 ;)

    Thx everybody !

    ffmpeg 4.3.2.... so working :-)
    here list of options :
    - Support network with openssl
    - libmodplug
    - libopus
    - libmp3lame
    - libvorbis
    - libtheora
    - libwebp
    - libfreetype
    - zlib shared
    - png shared
    - bzlib
    - lzma shared

    My only limit is ALTIVEC support... when i compiled with it, result is sound/video crappy.
    I will create github, if any interest, someone can check.

    For ffplay, all working with SDL2 but only in software rending.. so is slow.
