how to convert video file format using kino video editor


I installed kino but ./configure gave following warning

libiec61883 is the new, preferred Linux 1394 streaming interface; others are deprecated. If you must only support dv1394,then you must explicitly specify it using --with-dv1394.

Now kino can only open .dv files.Has anybody used kino-non-linear DV editor to transcode.

well if you are running " ./configure" to configure the source code you have NOT installed it with " make" and "make install "

so it is NOT installed
what distro are you using

and why not use your package manager to install it rather that building the source code .

I forgot to mention.Then I did 'make' followed by 'make install' & everything went well with no errors.So it runs.
QUESTION
But kino can open only .dv files.How can I use it to convert .avi files to other format?

did you install ALL the needed prerequisites ( -dev for ubuntu, -devel for fedora
or build ALL of them from source .
http://www.kinodv.org/article/static/3
Quote:
Here's the list of required components. You can usually install them from your Linux distribution's repository.

* libglade2
* gtk 2.6 (and related dependencies)
* libxml2
* libdv
* libsamplerate
* libasound
* libXv
* libpthread
* ffmpeg, libavformat, and libavcodec
* libraw1394
* libiec61883
* libavc1394

Some optional, but recommended runtime utilities include:

* ffmpeg2theora
* sox
* vorbis-tools
* lame
* mjpegtools
* dvdauthor
* 'Q' dvdauthor
* growisofs
* mencoder

Here are some links to some closely related dependent projects:

* libiec61883 (http://www.linux1394.org/)
* libraw1394 (http://www.linux1394.org/)
* libavc1394 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/libavc1394/)
* libdv (http://libdv.sourceforge.net/)
and why not use your package manager to install the ( rpm, or deb ) file for kino

As I have mnetioned I installed successfully from tarball that means ./configure gave the following warning.

libiec61883 is the new, preferred Linux 1394 streaming interface; others are deprecated. If you must only support dv1394,then you must explicitly specify it using --with-dv1394.

So I ran ./configure --with-dv1394

Do you think because of this only dv file type is supported.

I haven't built it myself. Have you read through the other options. "./configure --help" & the README file may provide information on other options.

What is it that it can't do? None DV formats need to be imported. The pre-compiled package version I have will do that.

IMHO, if you want to transcode video from one format to another, ffmpeg or mencoder would be better tools.

You mentioned AVI files. Remember that AVI is a container format. It might contain DV streams or different video streams inside.
The description of the Kino package on my distro mentions that it will record DV & DV-2 streams in AVI container files. So I imagine that
avi files are supported but you may not have support for the video streams your AVI files are using.

Which distro do you have. For SuSE, I'd recommend installing the Packman repository. Fedora has a similar repository that have better versions of media related packages.

I'm not sure if the message you saw "If you must only support dv1394" means that this option enables only dv1394, but I think that it means that you should use libiec61883 unless you specifically want to use libdv1394 instead. I think you left out options for ffmpeg, libavcodec, etc.
