For this, I use mencoder (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MEncoder) - the command-line of MPlayer.
Here's what I've been using. I need to put it in a shell script...
mencoder -vf scale=240:-10 <input file> -o <output file>.mp4 -of avi -ofps 15 -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=230:acodec=mp3:abitrate=64 -delay +1
The delay flag slows down audio or speeds up audio - in this case my video was one second behind the audio, so I sped it up.

I'm sure I know the answer to this but is there some kind of software that can be downloaded to my actual phone that can be used to convert videos on the phone to store, rather than having to do it on my computer then transfer it over to my BB?
Thanks for any advice or help!

Specifically on Linux (but also on Win and Mac) the Handbrake app can be used to convert for BB. If you have a relatviely recent BB just use the "iPhone and iPod" preset of the Handbrake. This is a graphical tool (available as a command line too) and is very easy to use. It can convert directly from a DVD.
Just keep in mind the developers in the help forum are not especially friendly, but hopefully you will not need any support as it is intuitive enough.

hi, i am new to this forum and a BB 9700 user. I used akme ffmpeg transcoder to convert a HD flv file to MPEG4 format. However, after the conversion, the audio part lagged behind for like 1-2 seconds. Is there anymore settings that I need to do? *the output file format was based on the Blackberry 9000 Bold High Quality..it's the only series nearest to 9700 I could find*
On another note, during the conversion of the files, I saw this sentence in the DOS:
[h264 @ 6C19BE80] brainfart cropping not supported, this could look slightly wrong....
Please help. Thank you very much.

When the audio lags behind the video, two possible causes :
cause 1 : it's because the encoder did a bad job. To verify this you can simply try and read the video with VideoLan Client or with GOM player or Media Player Classic.
cause 2 : it's because the CPU reading the video is not fast enough. This happens often :
so let's say you have a 640x480 video with a video bitrate of 1000kbps, and want to reencode it to a Bold2 video, then you should apply a bitrate of (480/640)² * 1000 = 563kbps.
