fmfconv is a Fuse movie file converter. It can convert .fmf files to any video file format known by FFMPEG.


-a codec
--acodec codec

Select audio codec for FFMPEG output (by default file format determine).


List available FFMPEG audio codecs (see -a/--acodec).


Force AIFF-C output if sound format is AIFF.

-A rate
--arate rate

Select audio bitrate for FFMPEG output (by default audio codec determine) where ‘rate’ is ‘default’ or a number.


Save sound to Sun Audio (au) file.


Save sound to Apple Computer audio (aiff/aiff-c) file.

-F format
--format format

Select file format for FFMPEG output (by default the filename extension determines the format).


List available FFMPEG formats (see -F/--format).

-f timing
--frate timing

Set output frame rate. ‘timing’ is ‘pal’, ‘ntsc’, ‘movie’ or a number with maximum 3 digit after decimal point, or a #/# (e.g.: -f 29.97 or -f 30000/1001).


Give brief usage help, listing available options.


Scan input file(s) and print information.

-i filename
--input filename

Input file.


Convert sound to mono (by default sound is converted to stereo).

-C cut
--out-cut cut

Leave out the comma delimited ‘cut’ ranges e.g.: 100-200,300,500,1:11-2:22 cut the frames 100-200, 300, 500 and frames from 1 min 11 sec to 2 min 22 sec (in the given timing see: -f/--frate).

-o filename
--output filename

Output file.


Save video as PPM screenshots.

-p profile
--profile profile

Select the profile for FFMPEG output where <profile> is ‘youtube’, ‘dvd’, ‘svcd’ or ‘ipod’.

-g form
--progress form

Show progress, where <form> is one of ‘%’, ‘bar’, ‘frame’ or ‘time’. frame and time are similar to bar and show movie seconds or frame number as well.


Decrease the verbosity level by one.


Do not convert sound to 16-bit signed PCM and STEREO or MONO. This is an advanced option. If stereo/mono or audio encoding change through ‘fmf’ file, your sound will be crappy.

-R res
--resize res

Resize video frame where ‘res’ is ‘vga’ for 640x480, ‘hvga’ for 480x360, ‘qvga’ for 320x240, ‘pal’ for 768x576 (this set frame rate to 25 also) or WxH, Sx, N/Mx or W.


Save video as SCR screenshots.

-s filename
--sound filename

Output sound file.


Process only the sound from an ‘fmf’ file.

-E rate
--srate rate

Resample audio to ‘rate’ sampling rate where ‘rate’ is ‘cd’ for 44100 or ‘dat’ for 48000 or a number (‘cd’ and ‘dat’ set ‘stereo’ as well).


Increase the verbosity level by one.

-c codec
--vcodec codec

Select video codec for FFMPEG output (by default file format determine).


Print the version number and exit.

-r rate
--vrate rate

Select video bitrate for FFMPEG output (by default audio codec determine) where ‘rate’ is ‘default’, ‘ffdefault’ or a number.


List available FFMPEG video codecs (see -c/--vcodec).


Save sound to Microsoft audio (wav) file.


Save video and audio as FFMPEG file (default if FFMPEG is available).


Save video as yuv4mpeg2.

--yuv-format frm

Set yuv4mpeg2 file frame format to ‘frm’, where ‘frm’ is one of ‘444’, ‘422’, ‘420j’, ‘420m’, ‘420’ or ‘410’.


Convert a Fuse movie file to a mpeg video with quality equivalent to YouTube

fmfconv -p youtube input.fmf

Convert a Fuse movie file to a DVD video format

fmfconv -p dvd input.fmf output.vob

Extract audio (mono) from a recording

fmfconv --sound-only --mono input.fmf output.wav
