(mono and stereo are both supported, sample rate must be less than 29KHz.)
Virtualdub is a good program for this purpose.
I've installed Virtualdub.
I could set the RESIZE filter to the wanted size (50% of the original size -> 312x176 ).
I could configure the framerate to 12 fps.
But I couldn't configure the CONVERT FORMAT filter to 15-bit RGB. It's only possible to convert to 32-bit RGB or YCbCr 12, 16 or 24.

How can I convert to 15-bit RGB using Virtualdub ?

Yes, hard drive emulation is only possible with the ARM controller upgrade. My 68K runs at 49 MHz.

Because the original is 15fps and required an 030 etc.

Also I read std Minimig is 500kb/s max transfer.
With the latest firmware hard disk read speed can be as high as 1,800 KB/s. Moreover in turbo mode the Chip RAM runs twice as fast as in the original Amiga chipset.

I could convert my test video with Virtualdub to RGB 16bit 555 and save it as an .AVI file, and I converted the audio to 8bit 11050 kHz and save it as a .WAV file, all went fine.
But now my problem is that when I try to run AVI4HV from a Shell, I have an error message, for example, when I type : avi4hv.exe testvideo.avi
it returns me this error : "avi4hv.exe: file is not executable"

I tried to add an icon to avi4hv.exe via Dopus4 (I'm under WinUAE), but still no positive result...

the avi4hv executable is not the AMIGA program to playback the video.
It is the Windows program to convert the 15bit avi file and wav audio file into an amiga HAM6 video.

When you have created the HAM6 file you then run HAMP.RUN from the shell on an amiga.

eg. Shell> HAMP.RUN {your video name}

Thanks for yours explanations !

I used avi4hv in a WinXP shell, it run well, but the only problem I had is concerning the output file. After two tries with 2 different video/audio files, avi4hv generated each time a 1KB file. The process was very fast. My sample video is 37 seconds, so maybe it is too short ? Is there a minimum/specific length for a video file (like for the specific video resolution that must be 320 pixels) ?

I didn't tried it since my last post so I'm still stuck. It would be cool if, at least, someone could share a converted video like Chain asked, yes, a short movie trailer would be nice to try on a real Amiga.

Or even better, a quick Youtube tutorial on how to convert a video with avi4hv !

ok, I remember getting a similar error as the 1k files. I cant remember the fix though. I "think" that reinstalling Virtualdub worked (perhaps maybe resetting the program to defaults worked too) But I am not certain. I will retry later in the week.
