Other supported codecs and file formats
other supported file formats
The following file formats are auto-detected and supported. Some MPEG 1 videos may fail. The basic transcode session needs at least the options "-i" for input, "-o" for output and "-y" with your choice of export module. The following are example outputs:

transcode -i test.X
-o test_divx4mp3.avi -y divx4
