Default Working Scripts on the SanDisk Forums

It looks like someone got it working and automated!

Shell script (bash)

Someone took the research used to make the above script made a Python version with a cross-platform Qt GUI and put it on Google Code.

Both versions use mencoder to do the encoding and then AVI-Mux to make it so that the Fuze will actually detect and play the files.

Unfortunately, AVI-Mux is Windows-only (the author(s) couldn't find a linux-native program to do the job), so Wine is needed to do conversions on Linux. Fortunately, however, AVI-Mux actually runs in Wine, unlike SMC.

As a bonus, even though the conversion requires Wine or Windows, it's still all F/OSS!

I can confirm that the shell script works on both Kubuntu 8.04 and OpenSUSE 11.1, assuming the needed codecs are installed. I have not (yet) tried the Python version.
