FlaskMPEG for Linux?


I'm looking for an encoding app for linux similar to FlaskMPEG on Windows. I don't mind if it's an mencoder frontend (although mencoder seems awfully slow) - I just don't want to have to wrestle with the CLI for doing encoding tasks - namely encoding mpeg1 videos into xvid+mp3 avis.

I've already tried Kmenc, which is ok but balks at .mpg files.

tried acidrip? seeing as i wrote it i know it'll definitely do what you say you want.

mencoder is well well fast if you use it right. i hit about 80fps on average with a XP2600+. certainly a lot better than my experiences with FlaskMPEG... mind you i've not touched that for more than 3 years....

whoa, i'm getting 5fps with this command:

mencoder -of avi -sws 0 -ovc xvid -xvidencopts me_quality=6:bitrate=980 -oac mp3lame /home/tom/consolevania\ resident\ evil\ special.mpg -loadidx -ss 0 -o /home/tom/test.avi

what have i done wrong?

erm... i forget what options do that i don't use... but i think the sws option was deprecated a long long time ago... i've not used it for a long time, everything like that should be processed through the -vf framework. also in the example you have, the -of is irrelevant (avi is default), -ss is default to 0 (well... of course it will start at the first frame!) also i'd not use the loadidx unless you are having problems without, but an index build isn't going to slow it down that fast....

personally i use the ffmpeg options instead of xvid, and by default i'd run something like:

mencoder -oac mp3lame -lameopts abr:br=224 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:vbitrate=900 -vf scale=480:-2 -o blah.avi blah.mpg

Right, your options give me a constant 45fps. Many thanks

I'm just yum installing Gtk2-Perl to get the frontend going, I've already sorted lsdvd.
