Ipod movie maker is a dialog windows bash script which allows you to merge *.txt subtitles with all formats of movie files and save it in avi format. You may convert all kinds of video to .mp4 which is Ipod Video compatible format. You will be only questioned about the location of a source movie, subtitles, encoding (default WINDOWS-1250), font location (default /home/$USER/.mplayer/font/subfont.ttf), and where to save reasult .mp4 file. You can have each work done seperatly or have whole process done from hardcoding subtitles to encoding to ipod format.
  1. Make sure that you have mencoder and ffmpeg compiled with libxvid, libfaac codecs enable
  2. Make sure you have proper true type font installed in /home/$USER/.mplayer/font directory
  3. Make sure you have compiled gtkpod with libfaac codec to upload movies on Ipod viedeo
  4. to get this script working write this in your console
    chmod 755 ipodmoviemaker
    cp ipodmoviemaker /usr/bin/

2007-07-19 New version avaible. Check Ipod MovieMaker 0.1
Fixed problems with spaces in filename, now you can convert all types of movie files with various signs including spaceline unless it don't have .avi extension
Now function "Let's have done both" ( hardcoding subtitles and converting to ipod format) works fine, although there is no echo of mencoder activity
