A filesize limit option in the script could really help for easiest conversion, no need to use other tool then.

@thairacerjp :I've seen your videos, nice conversions!

Problem is the file size.
Can agaconv-script split files to be not larger than 2Gb ? (PFS limit)
Then AGABLASTER could play automatically those files specifically named, for example
conv_1.cdxl then conv_2.cdxl etc... in order

Do you think it's possible ?

BULI has resolved the problem with DVD & AllegroCDFS but it's not possible to add DVD on CD32

Except the file size problem, this tool is really great.
Thanks for your work !
Good to know this works so well for you

You can (almost) already do what you want with a bit of extra work.

(1) you can use ffmpeg to split a video in equally long videos. (2) you can run multiple videos with one command line on the Amiga.

Here is how:
(1) use ffmpeg to split the original video 'myvideo.mp4' into multiple videos 'myvideo001.mp4 myvideo002.mp4 ...".
In the following example each segment is 20 mins long.
$ ffmpeg -i myvideo.mp4 -c copy -map 0 -segment_time 00:20:00.0 -f segment -reset_timestamps 1 myvideo%03d.mp4

Now convert each video file with agaconv-script

(2) play the converted list of cdxl files with agablaster
> spat agablaster myvideo#?.cdxl

The Amiga command 'spat' is usually installed at s:spat. It replaces #? with all the respective file names and calls agablaster multiple times, once for each video. Hence it works (almost) like one video.
I use this for testing with multiple files (the next agablaster update will make sure the mouse button is released before it starts, this is helpful to get through a list of files without skipping one accidentally)

Note, I had to use "protect s:spat +s" to get spat working in the emulator.

I hope this helps.

@movec, thanks for your mini tutorial, i will do try and Bully report for do video in 320X196 works brillant on CD32, 24 fps and save place (320x254 : around 900mb, in 320x196 about 650 mb for the same file), you show how to convert to 64 colours but it's not very clear, is it possible in 128 colours ?

In your script I don't see any volume name. So I guess it works on the volume where you start, but then it doesn't find the file because it's not on the same volume. Hence, you have to add the volume name, e.g.
agablaster myvolume1:video1.cdxl
agablaster myvolume2:video2.cdxl

BTW, if you use the option --gfx-mode=hires with agaconv-script, then 'hires mode' is encoded into the video and you do not need to provide it on the command line to agablaster

Yes, you can use 128 colors (--max-colors=126). Then it will use only 7 bitplanes.

@movec : all problems resolved master, can reach videos on other volumes, I have done conversion 128 colors but it save "only" 50 mo for a file of 2GB and the quality is too narrow, & blade.
used also ffmpeg for split, superb ! , 20mn is ideal for get around 2GB (psf3/sfs 32 bits), now I have big problem with my indivision mkII : no signal , but it's another problem

Yes 20 min is a good limit for 320x196 videos with default settings (25fps,28000hz,256 colors) with very good quality

Thanks movec
