Oggify is a program that was written to help manage and convert FLAC audio files into other formats. It ships with MP3 and Ogg Vorbis support. It is intended to allow a user to have a directory tree of FLAC files, and be able to update a tree of MP3 or Ogg files as they add new FLAC files. It has an easy command-line interface with a variety of adjustable settings. It also features a plugin architecture to make it easy to add support for more formats.
mp3togo is a command line tool for creating sets of low bit-rate MP3 or Ogg Vorbis files for use on a portable player. It reads MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, m4a, and WAV files, decodes and normalizes the file, and then encodes the file in the desired output type. This makes large archives of music compatible with generic portable players no matter what formats exist in the archive. The smaller, disposable files produced can be stored at a greater density on small capacity portable devices. Files can be specified on the command line or read from m3u files or a running instance of XMMS or Amarok. A cluster mode distributes the transcoding to local LAN nodes.
KmPg2 is a user-friendly MPEG2 encoding wizard which assists the user while creating high quality DVD compatible MPEG2 streams from any input video. It is designed to be easy to use, requiring little technical knowledge. The wizard uses the powerful video processing tools and the MPEG2 encoder from the MJPEGTools project. KmPg2 features a separate profiler, which can be used to interactively create custom preprocessing profiles for specific types of video material.
DVD Rip-O-Matic is a simple DVD-to-XviD ripping wizard that uses MEncoder to do the actual encoding. The wizard was designed to be very easy to use; it automatically detects the optimal settings. It should also produce very high quality AVI files, even if you have no idea what the settings mean and just use it in the next-next-next-finish way.
KDE DVDAuthor Wizard will assist you while creating a DVD from one or more DVD-compatible MPEG-2 files. It is designed to be very easy to use. All you need to do is add one or more files to the playlist and answer the questions that follow. You can add a menu that will contain animated thumbnails of the files in the playlist. PAL and NTSC menus are supported, both in widescreen 16:9 and standard 4:3 format.
mkcdtoc is a small and flexible command line utility to create TOC files for cdrdao. It reads a list of audio files and outputs a TOC file with a track specification for each audio file. Input data can be a raw list with one file name on each line, or an m3u play list. The program has a modular architecture and can be extended via plugins. The distribution includes a few plugins that can retrieve meta information from audio files to fill CD-TEXT blocks in the generated TOC file. There are plugins to perform audio file to WAVE format conversion.
DVD95 is an GNOME application to convert DVD9 to DVD5 (4.7 GB). It needs no additional packages, since embedded versions of vamps and dvdauthor are included. The interface is pretty simple to use. The shrinking factor may be computed for best results, or an adaptive compression ratio method may be used. The DVD can be converted to a file tree or an ISO file. The result can be viewed in xine, vlc, or mplayer. Burning the converted image is done with third party software. The output can either include or omit the menus in the source.
unweave opens each of a list of image files, removes the artifacts generated by weave interlacing, and overwrites the original file (unless told otherwise). The artifacts are removed by simply removing either the odd or the even lines of the image, and interpolating them from the remaining lines.
