Cool Linux video converter

May I offer Linux video converter?

(Google "Linux video converter rudd-o.com" without the quotes. The first hit is what you want -- apparently the mods don't want me to post hyperlinks so now you have to google stuff).

If the target format you want is not supported, just log on a bug in the Web site.

Not exactly for RH9 but it should work if you can compile the latest mencoder there.

I wouldn't be surprised if you will have a problem installing these programs on RH9. It is an ancient distro. You should upgrade. The base libraries that it uses will be so old that you may run into a lot of dependency problems. Many media type packages are notorious in this respect.

There's a number of options.

ffmpeg
mplayer/mencoder
vlc
transcode
cinelerra

and others

I use ffmpeg as it allows you to keep the quality, and the syntax is more intuitive. mencoder seems to favor small filesizes. Some of the others offer more dumbed down interfaces, but don't handle quite as many filetypes as well as expected, if at all.

I have also written a little frontend for ffmpeg/mencoder some time ago, because of how long it always took to figure out a working command with the cli tools. It's almost impossible to remember all the options which makes trial and error a pain without a gui.
Anyway, it's here:
