I like to burn dvd's and lots of the files which my movies are in are avi. I just started to use linux so i don't know a good decoder program.

does anyone know a good program that i could use? i would like a program that can convert loads of file types.

thanks in advance

mencoder, not player part of mplayer. mplayer has mencoder. I don't think there's a gui though. you're going to have to do it CLI. Don't be afraid of the CLI.

Once you go Slack, you don't go back.
