Hi there everyone i am new to this leappad stuff, i managed to get a movie onto the leap pad 2 for my daughter but the sound is quite low on the video itself. Is there any way i can address that issue on the leappad manager program?

I am not sure if it is in the current public version, but there is a section for additional ffmpeg commands and under the input box gives an example of '-af volume=1.5'. If you enter that without quotes into the box and adjust the 1.5 to maybe 3 then it will increase the volume when converting the video. One of my movies I had to go up to 6 for it to sound decent. 3 seems to work well for most though

Yep I see exactly the same behavior. If I open Leap Pad Manager as Admin, I can't drag and drop but I can drag and drop in regular user mode. It's a bugger that the Leap Pad 2 won't connect in regular user mode, only in Admin mode. Windows 8.1 Pro here. Thanks lonelynoose for the idea on video conversion and packaging in user mode, and then adding it in Admin mode.

Deak - a browse button would be awesome, or even a simple input text box where we could enter in a file location from a local disk.

Wonderful software Deak - thankyou very much. I think there are probably a lot more people using it than you know.

cheers.

Thank you for the feedback. I did implement an option to install stuff from an 'install' folder so you just need to stick everything in there you want to install and choose that from the menu option. I am not sure if that feature is in the latest public release or not.

Hi Deak,

Yep the Install from folder option is in the current v6.9.1 public release. That's how I did it anyway.

Aside from all that, I had a think and it'd be neat to get ffmpeg to dump a frame a certain way into the video and output it as a thumbnail for the video/app, so the icon for the vid would make sense. I'm not a C++ proficient coder (python's my thing), otherwise I'd volunteer to do it myself.

cheers, k.

I had thought about that, but a screen grab of the video as the icon would be so small, you might not be able to make out what it is and there is a good chance the screen grab would be of something useless instead of something you would recognize.

P.S. I am looking for a Java developer for my minecraft mod site if you happen to know Java or know someone that does Smile

Sorry Deak, I'm not a Java guy either. I know others that are, but they are all very busy chaps.

I don't think the thumb idea would be all that bad really. I've tested a few youtube videos to see how the results vary. HD stuff is somewhat ordinary, but not super awful. Lower res stuff comes out pretty OK.

ffmpeg.exe -i input.mp4 -vframes 1 -ss 5 -filter:v "scale="82:-1", pad=w=82:h=88:x=(ow-iw)/2:y=(oh-ih)/2:color=black" thumbnail.png

This outputs a single frame 5 seconds into the video, scales it proportionally to 82 pixels wide, and pads any background (if there is any) with black to make it 82x88, and saves in png format.

I got the thumbnail dimensions from your tiger thumbnail so I assume that's right.

cheers K.

ok I will give it a shot. 5 seconds would not work for movies since you would most likely grab the credits. I could grab a few screenshots and display them so you can choose which one is best. I will look into adding this feature once I get some free time.

That's a nice idea but sounds like a bit more work for you. Even just a Thumb from 50% of the way though could do. This PHP code on stackoverflow shows a neat way of getting the length of the video from ffmpeg, and halving that, and feeding it back into ffmpeg. That's using a linux bash shell tho. There are plenty of other ways though I guess.

cheers, K.
