Video Converter in Linux


Hi all,

Besides Transcode, is there any other alternative? (at least I need to convert RMVB to mpeg)

Thanks.

You'll need some patience to sort through all the man pages of mencoder. I wish they had included some examples. In any case, I've tried mencoder in the past --the quality of the output video left something to be desired (I was converting wmv to mpg) with its jerkiness and audio/video failure to sync properly. Apparently, Mplayer/Mencoder is such a mishmash of code from a bazillion different programmers that it's not even possible to properly sync all the formats or, say, step forward through a video file frame by frame. Still, if you need *something* that's in that particular format, in Linux your best bed is Mencoder, since it has the most number of formats available.

Some examples can be found at the bottom of man mencoder.

Cool The last resort

You can always try virtualization. I like virtualbox and once you load a virtual machine with winxp, you could use any video converter. I like total video converter or you can try the free gxtranscoder.

Cool Linux video converter is now available

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.
