No need to covert the VDI file to RAW format. Just copy the vdi file into the local folder. For me, I will just put it at /root/testing.vdi
Step 2, Create a new VM in Proxmox
On the “OS” tab, choose “Do not use any media”
On the “Hard Disk” tab, choose “local-lvm”, as storage, Disk size is any size you want, for example, 8GB. Format, choose “Raw disk image (raw)”, On CPU and Memory, choose the same as the Virtualbox settings.
Confirm to create the new VM.
Step 3, Detach and Remove the Hard Disk
Say my VM ID is 109, choose Virtual Machine 109, Hardware, Hard Disk, choose “Detach” button.
At this point, the hard disk will be listed as “Unused Disk.” It still exists but is not attached to the system. To destroy it completely, select the Unused Disk and click Remove again; and confirm when prompted.
I have an website which is hosted on Dreamhost.
I has a script to convert video from any formats to flv file, which can be played as flash video.
When I look at the error which made is shown as below.
ffmpeg unknown encoder mp3
It looks like mp3 audio is not supported by ffmpeg on Dreamhost. I think it is supported when I first write this script.
I checked the support history under Dreamhost control panel. The log said the account is moved to a new server last month. It may make something different.
OK. I google it and got the answer
There are many video formats in computer world. Say MPG, WMV, AVI, MP4, The FLV is a video format played by flash player, which is installed almost 99% of computers all over the world.
Video quality of the different formats widely vary. MPG compression is quite bad, a thing from the past. Regular FLV, WMV and MP4 have a similar, decent quality/ filesize performance. Quicktime 7 introduced a superior new codec (H.264) in 2004, which is used in MP4 and MOV files. Flash Player 8 introduced a similar impressive new codec, the ON2 VP6. And the latest Windows Media (version 10) has the excellent VC-1 codec. What does this mean? If you use one of these newer codecs you get great video quality at small filesizes, but since the software is less widely adopted, it’s possible that your visitors first need to upgrade their plugin.
The only weak point of the flash player is that it solely supports its native FLV format, so you’ll have to convert your existing videos to the FLV format. MP4 support is on it’s way as well, but the required plugin version hasn’t spread yet.
To make a better quality of FLV video. The following instruction are suggested.
1) Rescale the source (720×540) to (480X360) or 320×240 to an uncompressed intermediate file.
2) Use the 2-pass VBR converter, use a keyframe for every 2 seconds (50 frames) for video with little motion up to a keyframe every half second (10 frames) for video with a lot of motion.
3) Bitrate for the video: 200 – 1000 kbps. Audio is set to 32, 64 or 96 kbps mp3. 32 for just speech, 96 for cool music.
I have a dream, mentioned in my Chinese Blog. I want to replce the current Windows 2003 server by a Linux server.
There are something to do before I move to Linux.
I am familiar with the Windows just like lots of other people who runs a Windows desktop.
Now for Server side, Linux, Bind, Apache, MySQL, postfix, and many server software are all running well.
The problem is I have to redesign my sites to PHP, MySQL. It is a big job.
It took me about 8 hours to convert G2Soft, main site of my Pentacle In-Out Board.
There are still some other sites I runing on this Windows server. I have to convert them one by one to a new site.
