nativesith has shared a quick guide on how other can also make .bik videos for games like Grand Theft Auto IV and Smackdown vs Raw.
To quote: A couple days ago I presented some Bik videos converted from mp4's in 480p. Today I will show you all another way to watch NewISH without converting. Just look in your other game folders, almost all other games have Video folders with videos already in bik form. Simply copy any video to your desktop rename it CNT or weazel and place in USRDIR/ps3/movies and watch it with Niko. Many files play with out character voices, but still very cool.
Check out Bink Video and download RAD video tools (http://www.radgametools.com/bnkmain.htm)
The first few times I tried the program , nothing worked. Then I converted video I had already converted to 480 p mp4 for my ps3's. That is when every video started to work. I advise anyone trying this to do that first, since the BIK conversion will take a while. For any other video formats (flv, avi, mkv, wmv,etc...) to mp4 I use Allok.
Once the file is in 480p.mp4 then open up
Bink and Smacker
Select RAD video tools
Find and Select the file
Select BINK it
Now in the options check off compress to a % of the original and place the value beside that to 100
That is it Press Bink on the right hand side and wait for the file to be converted
The file will be in the same folder the original is in just rename to CNT.bik or weazel.bik and replace GTA IV.
Once Rad Video Tools is installed one can watch all the videos on one's external hard drive from all the GAMES that contain bik files!
I also want to add a quick note myself, if you're attempting to mod a .bik video for a game like Smackdown Vs Raw I advise you make sure it's the same size as the original one so the video isn't too big or too small.

To quote: ... a long time ago, an a galaxy far, far away; a scene developer by the name of Native Jedi reached out to Obi-T000 Kenobi, and other moderators throughout the scene worlds for help, because the Evil Empire was chasing him throughout the universe. The Empire was after him, for he was in possession of custom game modifications; ones that could be used to cripple the Empires plans on total universal domination.
The Empire seized control of his custom game modifications, and then all hope had seemed lost... but he joined with Obi-T000, and set up a secret Rebel base at PSX-Scene with Pave Solo, Evilblunta and J2-D2; where they could once again design custom modifications for the games they own, without the fear of the Empire awaiting in ambush, trying to diminish and destroy their efforts.
With a team of other GTAIV game modders, two members of the Rebel Alliance, J2-D2 and Native Jedi, have unleashed their new plans that will bring a new era in GTAIV modifications. But with the ever watchful empire ready to destroy anyone who opposes them, the Rebels must remain secret in transferring the files. Please, you must resit the dark side. Join the Rebel Alliance today! And remember... The first rule of GTA IV WARZ, is there is no GTA IV WARZ!
