Then follow the following command lines to get going

3gp to avi : ffmpeg -i source.3gp -f avi -vcodec xvid -acodec mp3 -ar 22050 destination.avi

flv to 3gp : ffmpeg -i source.flv -s 176×144 -vcodec h263 -r 25 -b 200 -ab 64 -acodec mp3 -ac 1 -ar 8000 destination.3gp

    RE; 3gp

    Hi, the code for video should read ‘libxvid’ NOT just xvid.
    You get an error message.

    As for mp3 support well I’m still having troubles.. it seems ffmpeg is not compiles to support 3gp.

    Anyway it should also read ‘libmp3lame’ anyway.

    hope this help someone. cheers Carlo
