Is this a quick/simple way to convert a bunch of JPG stills into some sort of video file so it can be played back in VLC? If the convertion can be done using VLC, that would be preferred.
I use mencoder to assemble a series of jpeg frames into an avi, which can then be easily played back in VLC
mencoder mf://*.jpg -mf fps=24 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:mbd=1:vbitrate=12800:autoaspect=1 -o video.avi
you may want to play with the lavcopts but that should get you going...
ps. I tried to do this with VLC itself but just couldn't figure it out
