Video encoding on the Odroid-C1


as you may have seen I have recently built a timelapse rail Now I searched for a solution to encode a small preview video on the odroid-c1 directly.

After having testing different scripts which didn’t work well I took a look inside the Amlogic’s S805 Datasheet which can be found on

There is a hint that says:

Video/Picture Encoding
o Independent JPEG and H.264 encoder with configurable performance/bit-rate
o JPEG image encoding
o H.264 video encoding up to 1080P@30fps
That is fine news and so I tried avconv to generate the preview video. After successfully encoding the video you may start a vnc server and control the preview video directly on the odroid-c1.
Just log into your odroid and type
avconv -f image2 -r 15 -i htc_one_v_%04d.jpg -vcodec libx264 -r 24 -s 352*288 -strict -2 time-lapse.mp4
That should do it:
Watch the video to see how it works.
P.S.: It’s of course not 1080 Pixels@30fps.  1080P is  a HDTV high-definition video mode known as HD. Sorry for that mistake in the video!
