       lavtrans -o outputfile -f a|q|i|w [-i num] lavfile1  [lav­
       file2 ... lavfileN]


       lavtrans  can  be used to convert the recorded videos from
       MJPEG one "container" format  to another. It can  also  be
       used to split the streams, or do destructive edits.

       Like  all the other mjpegtools(1) lavtrans can also accept
       an edit list file in place of  actual  video  files.  This
       allows  it  to  be used to construct a stand-alone copy of
       the editted video sequence described in the editlist.

       Note that lavtrans can only change the container  type  of
       MJPEG video, no its format.  As such it is not possible to
       use it combine streams of different format.


       lavtrans accepts the following options:

       -f [a|q|m|i|w]
            Specifies the output format that should be saved.
              a - output to AVI file
              q - output to Qicktime file
              m - output to movtar file
              i - output single JPEG images,
              w - output WAV file (sound only!)

       -i num
            Convert a single frame to a JPEG file.

       -o outputfile
            Specifies the name of the output file If you want  as
            output single JPEG images the output file string must
            be a valid format string

            Multiple filenames as input are acceped, also  mixing
            of edit list files and other in video files.
