Convert mp4 videos to mpg format !

At times, you will want to convert the mp4 videos to mpg format, which the common DVD players and the older TV’s support directly.

To do this, you can use the FFmpeg for Windows.

Download the program from :

https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/win64/static/ffmpeg-20161104-b4e9252-win64-static.zip

Extract the zip file and copy the bin folder in the zip folder to your preferred drive, let it be C.

You may give the path like C:\ffmpeg\bin

Once done, copy the mp4 file to be converted  ( sourcefile.mp4 ) to this path, ie C:\ffmpeg\bin.

Open command line and run the following commands :

cd C:\ffmpeg\bin

ffmpeg -i sourcefile.mp4 -target pal-dvd -ps 2000000000 -aspect 16:9 targetfile.mpg

You will find the converted video file in the same path, ie C:\ffmpeg\bin
