Just spent a few hours figuring out the right concoction of ffmpeg arguments for transcoding my collection of digital videos for playback on our new 2014 QX60. This results in full screen (i.e. no black bars) playback, at full res. I've thrown MKVs, MP4s, AVIs (DivX, Xvid), and about 18 movies so far at it and all have resulted in perfect support.

ffmpeg -i <input file name> -y -threads 2 -vtag DIVX -f avi -vcodec mpeg4 -b:v 1071000 -aspect 16:9 -s 720x480 -r ntsc-film -g 240 -qmin 2 -qmax 9 -acodec mp3 -ab 128000 -ar 48000 -ac 2 -benchmark <output file name>


All the software I could find to do it either resulted in black bars, was Windows only (I use a Mac, though the above ffmpeg command should work on any supported platform: Windows, Linux, BSD, etc. assuming ffmpeg was compiled w/ the right codec support), or cost $$$ (which I'm cheap and didn't feel like spending).

Oh that's great. I recently did used DivX converter that was downloaded via divx.com and used the Home Theater option. It ouputs 720x480 max and select the audio tracks and subtitles I want. I can select multiple video files for it to decode one after another. Another great option without having to type anything.

This is awesome guys, I have been working with Nissan on this issue for a while. I used the script you provided and so far so good, one movie down successfully. Thanks for your efforts and for sharing. I have been trying to use DVDfab to convert some of my DVDs for playback in the car and it's been hit and miss.

@Stephen Lau where do I use that transcode you provided? I used both Mac and Windows. I have all kinds of formats and would like to use your script.

Thanks

Stephen, thank you so much for posting this! I just got 2016 XQ60, which unfortunately still has this ancient codecs to work with. I appreciate your work sir!
