I have a folder full of audio file with .mp3 .amr and .wav extension. I have a image.jpg. What I want is combine the image.jpg with every audio file in that folder and convert them to separate vidoe.mp4 file. How do I do it with FFmpge?


Here are two other answered questions that should help you achieve your goal.

"Combine one image + one audio file to make one video using FFmpeg" source: Combine one image + one audio file to make one video using FFmpeg

The order of options in the command line matters. The following works for my case:

ffmpeg -loop 1 -shortest -y -i image8.jpg -i sound11.amr -acodec copy -vcodec mjpeg result.avi

In a more general case, where image.jpg and audio.wav are your input, you can use the following command, adapted from the FFmpeg wiki:

ffmpeg -loop 1 -i image.jpg -i audio.wav -c:v libx264 -tune stillimage -c:a aac -strict experimental -b:a 192k -pix_fmt yuv420p -shortest out.mp4

This would use the libx264 encoder and provide you with better compression than the MJPEG codec used above. The audio is AAC, with the built-in ffmpeg AAC encoder.

The commandline interpreter does indeed have a FOR construct that you can use from the command prompt or from within a batch file.

For your purpose, you probably want something like:

FOR %i IN (*.ext) DO my-function %i

Which will result in the name of each file with extension *.ext in the current directory being passed to my-function (which could, for example, be another .bat file).

The (*.ext) part is the "filespec", and is pretty flexible with how you specify sets of files. For example, you could do:

FOR %i IN (C:\Some\Other\Dir\*.ext) DO my-function %i

To perform an operation in a different directory.

There are scores of options for the filespec and FOR in general. See


from the command prompt for more information.
