audio convert is a script that converts between WAV, Ogg, MP3, MPC, FLAC, APE, AAC, and WMA files. It has an easy-to-use interface that makes it possible to fill in the tags for a few formats, copy the tags from input files into the new files, and choose the quality of compression. The script was initially designed for the Nautilus file browser and can be easily installed into Nautilus by using the installer provided with the script. You can then right-click on files and choose "audio-convert" from the "scripts" menu. The script is also known to work on rox or directly from a shell.
OGMRip is an application and a set of libraries for ripping and encoding DVDs into AVI/OGM files using a wide variety of codecs. It relies on mplayer, mencoder, ogmtools, oggenc, and lame to perform its tasks. The GUI features a clean HIG-compliant GNOME 2 interface and tries to minimize (as much as possible) esoteric settings.
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.
shrip is an application for ripping and encoding DVDs into AVI, OGM, MKV, or MP4 files. It relies on OGMRip to perform its tasks. It also supports a wide variety of codecs such as MPEG4, XviD, Theora, and H.264 for video, Vorbis, MP3, AAC, AC3, DTS, and WAV for audio, and VobSub and Srt for subtitles.
AKVIS Sketch is a program for conversion of photos into pencil sketches and watercolor drawings. It can make any photo look like a black-and-white or color drawing, and it can imitate the techniques of graphite or color pencils, charcoal, or watercolor painting. The program works in an entertaining way. It allows you to observe the conversion of a photo into a drawing or watercolor in real time, and even lets you interrupt the process when the required result is achieved. Its special effects can be used to create a blend of a drawing and a photo, imitate motion, or add a "time machine effect" by swirling the background. It can accentuate certain parts of an image by blurring the rest of it.
