    Hi,

    I was playing around with Qt4 the last couple of days. After reading the basic tutorial, I wanted to try to write a small GUI as a first exercise.

    Since I frequently use ffmpeg to convert videos for my iPhone, I decided to write a small frontend for that awesome converter. I never made a GUI before since I thought this would be something really complex - so I had no experience at all - however surprisingly after less than eight hours work I ended up with something which was actually usable.

    So, I thought I could share this with you. Maybe someone finds it useful.

    32bit: http://www.[PIRACY.mup].com/J19PWDPA6R
    64bit: http://www.[PIRACY.mup].com/57QQEDJTWO

    You will need the Qt4 runtime-library packages libqt4-x11 (~21MB) and libqt4 (~6MB) and maybe some additional dependencies and the ffmpeg binary in a path.

    This program is freeware and you can distribute it freely as you like as long as you do not charge anything for it.

    Made a few changes in the layout, made it more idiot-proof and added an option to limit the audio bitrate. You can also save the settings now (will be saved to ~/.iVideoConvert_settings).

    I am too busy at the moment to compile a 64bit binary. If you want one, ask.

    I have room for one more button. Anyone got a good idea what to put there? I was thinking about a 'Reset settings' button, however there are essentially only four settings, so that would not add much convenience. Another idea was to open an extra window to display some information about the input file, but I guess this would be more of a gimmick and not used by a lot a people.
