    I was wondering if someone could help me with my idea because I'm not a developer and don't know much about programing but I have a realy good idea.
    An app that uses ffmpg4iphone to convert mpg and avi to mp4 files
    the app would just need to initiate the terminal comand line
    ffmpg -i X.mpg X.mp4. Or for avi ffmpg -i X.avi X.mp4
    X being the name of the file to convert

    the app could just let you choose the file to input that you could put in a directory with I file or ssh. Or maby some type of ifile addon that you can choze the file and run the comand from there like how you can choozw web or text veiw for HTML files

    thats a good idea,but i cant help you. but if you want to get the word out you should probably post this on many forum sites or even youtube or something like that just so that you can find a developer quickly.

    the problem is the hardware, it would be cool, yes, but it will take alot of time to convert a video, start first with simpler files like music and see how it goes from there

    I've already used ffmpeg on my iPod with mobile terminal to covert a 5 min mpg to mp3 and it only took about a minuet. I used mobile terminal but it's just anoting to type out and may confuse people

    You can set terminal to have the command preset in the menu where you touch the screen. Just go to the Terminal settings and click "Menu" and mess around with it from there.

    I know I just think it would help slot of people who don't know how to use ffmpeg or terminals to have a converter app that you can select the app, becides the name of the file is at the begining of the comand so it barely helps anyway.
