OK so here is what I am attempting to do:
Take any video (major codecs/wrappers) and have ffmpeg convert them into an
H.264/mp4 file that will play on the major smart phones; mainly, iPhone 3,
iPhone 4, Android 2.1u1 on up, etc.
I have been able to produce a file from SUPER (by eRightSoft) which also
uses ffmpeg to convert the files (I think it may also be making use of
DirectShow for decoding)  into an mp4/H.264/AAC LC video file that plays as
mentioned above.  For desktop viewing the file is sent with mime type
video/quicktime which seems to satisfy that end. 

Now, eventually I will want to run my script to output 2 files from each
input video; one for mobile devices smaller file size and then for desktop a
larger file size based on definition/quality. May need more than 2 in the
final version.

What questions have ye?
