Another poll where many of the nominees are not directly comparable.

K3b and Gnomebaker are CD and DVD writing programs.

Freevo and MythTV are personal video recorder projects.

Others again do belong to be in this poll. Do you know what multimedia programs are.

No it is not. It is a multimedia utility.

Where is the heck is transcode, ffmpeg, and GStreamer.

Electro, you've posted similar feedback in multiple polls. We realize that in many cases the nominees are not directly comparable. If we broke it out to the granularity some people are asking for we'd have literally a thousand polls. We try to strike a balance when deciding on the categories. Some single polls have been broken into as many as four distinct polls. A couple years ago we did have spreadsheet, word processor, etc. and is did not generate enough interest.

I forgot about ffmpeg, but along with mencoder it should be included as it is also widely user for DVD ripping.

I chose GnomeBaker, but OGMRip is missing. Compared to AcidRip or DVD::Rip, at least, it does an excellent job and is much more versatile (for example, converts a DVD to H.264 and Ogg Vorbis, and puts everything into a Matroska container).

Another poll with hard decision. I use many from the list a lot, especially K3b and digiKam, So The final vote goes to the one I use more time: digiKam.

I use k3b a lot

I do a lot of distro testing so I burn a lot of CDs and DVDs. K3b handles the job effortlessly and takes one level of setup and configuration right out of the equation, enabling me to spend less time configuring and more time testing. K3b has always done what I needed it to do automatically.

It was tough to choose between K3B and Digikam. I regularly use k3b to record cd and dvd disks.

I finally went with digikam since it even supports my very old Olympus camera that uses an obsolete file storage scheme.
