I have acquired a MDV 001 Mini Video Camera that works very well with UBUNTU. I want to transfer the recorded data from my PC to CD/DVD but the problem I have is, the camera records in AVI format but my video player can only handle JPEG. any conversion program AVI to JPEG which I could use.
I met a guy who is going about with a thermal imaging device. He wants to remove the watermark from the images and tells me that the software developed by the company can do this using only the jpeg. Unfortunately it's only available for windows. I'm dubious that this is possible, but I have to admit I'm not extremely well versed in image manipulation. Is it possible to extract the unadulterated image from a copy with the watermark and other data on it?
Somewhere along the line I have managed to get the below error when loading a jpeg in the gimp (either with 'open with' on context menu or directly)Running as an unprivileged user
Calling error for procedure 'file-jpeg-load':
Procedure 'file-jpeg-load' not found Opening '/home/fortyfourgalena/Desktop/photos/liza/inkosanalodge_20061201/20061201_171151_PC010620.jpg' failed: Procedure 'file-jpeg-load' not found
This happens on a system running 10.04 / 64-bit. As I seem to recall a recent gimp update (might be wrong), I checked a 32-bit 10.04 laptop and it does not show the behavior. For information: the 64-bit system has some additional stuff installed for image processing (ufraw and darktable) but I have been using this already for a while without issues. The other main change on this 64-bit system before I noticed the problem was the installation of a geforce 8400 video card including the 'nomodeset' option in grub and install of the latest driver from the nvidia website. verify that the gimp on a 64-bit system is still functioning.Further a 'repair' from within synaptic throws the following error
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/gimp_2.6.8-2ubuntu1.2_amd64.deb: subprocess dpkg-deb --fsys-tarfile returned error exit status 2
Note: I found some messages regarding this problem on the web but they were referring to older kernels (2.6.8); and people reverted back to an even older kernel. And yes, there have been a recent kernel upgrade.
I am using the following command to create a video of a bunch of jpeg files. The problem is that some of the jpegs are portrait and others are landscape. Ffmpeg is stretching the portrait images. Is it possible to maintain aspect ratio of the jpegs... perhaps put black bars on the portrait images using ffmpeg?
I use GIMP to edit pictures. When I cut part of one picture and put onto another picture, I try to save it as a jpeg, but it says "You must export image before you can save- JPEG Plug-In can't handle transparency." Is there another plug in that allows me to do this?
Also on a GIMP related subject, how can I set the eraser tool to transparency instead of white/other colors?
I've downloaded a few suggested converters, but they don't seem t ohave the right combination..I have some .avi's (from my camera) and want to put them on my website (using Joomla AllVideo component) so they have to be converted to .flv or maybe .mov.
I am trying to find a way to convert MS Mpeg4 files to a format that is playable on Totem or any of the media players for Ubuntu. I have tried many converters, even trying ones in Windows (I really didn't want to but thought I would give it a shot)
I have installed all the limited FFMPEG and x2.64 restricted and limited libraries. I have all the multiverse and universe repositories. I have tried WINFF, Avidemux, DeVeDe but to no avail and now I am tearing my hair out. Totem cannot find any plugins suitable.
I have a set of archival files from a previous machine that ran windows and one of Microsoft's proprietary photo packages. I have a set of files with the extension .mix and can find no program to convert them. I have tried the ABC program but it fails with floating point exceptions.
I have a training CD for my job,its an interactive disk with audio clips etc. I want to try extract the audio which is in the .AUD format. I have tried SoundConverter but it does not recognize the extension.Firstly am I correct in saying the audio is the .AUD extension,there is another file in the same folder with .DAT extension.
What are some good VGA to HDMI converters that work well with linux? Any suggestions? I don't know the resolution I'm working with just yet, but it appears to be a 42" hd lcd tv/monitor. I think there's a VGA port on the back, but I'd rather route the signal through HDMI for better resolution.
I am looking for some conversion software to convert mp3 files to a format that will play on a standard CD player .cda so that I can listen to audio files whilst in my car. Does anyone know of such a converter.
I was looking for a converter to use on common avi files and maybe some others and came across this thread. I followed it all the way to where it asks me to install ConvertIt by adding the repos and then running Synaptic. I found convertit and marked for install and clicked apply and got this error:
Code: convertit: Depends: gambas2-runtime (<2.1) but 2.13.1-1ubuntu1 is to be installed Depends: gambas2-gb-qt (<2.1) but 2.13.1-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
So i check synaptic for that and i had them installed already from the guide. So i marked them all for reinstall since i installed them in the terminal the first time. Reinstalled and i still get the same error.
Any idea whats wrong? Or is there a better movie converter thats easier? I just want to re encode the files so the will play on my 360.
I'm trying to convert some songs I have in the Format .WMA to .MP3 searching around I found the program soundconverter, then installed it, only when I try to convert some music gives me an error saying that lack the decoder Windows Media Audio 9 also researched how solve this problem but got no success, I installed a lot of codecs and solved nothing.
So I still have a windows partition for two reasons: 1) Steam I know you can run this on wine and I have tried that, but I can;t run valve games at max everything (including AA and Filtering) and I like my good graphics so there is not much I can do about that. The other reason is AVS Video Converter, I've fallen in love with it, it converts anything to anything quickly and flawlessly, but I want an alternative to it for Ubuntu, something that works flawlessly just like AVS, to refine my needs more, I use it to convert video for my PSP.
You may all know about Total Video Converter, Any Video Converter and such used in Windows, where you chose codecs, like i want to convert to mp4 for my phone.
But.. there's one specific thing I'm looking for that most don't seem to have. Cutting. I need for example, to cut from 24:00 to 30:00, that is the only part i want cut and converted to mp4 ready for my phone.
I search for a Video Transcoder (neither ''Arista'' nor ''Transmagedon'') which can Recode a Video with my OWN options (like width: 640 high: 360)! And i need also (and this is more important) an Video to Mp3 Converter ( not WinFF, because i get an Error: libmp3lame unknown ) which i can convert many FIles at the same time.
I have a 'Gadget Geek VHS to DVD maker' USB device that takes analogue video in (composite) and plugs into the computer via USB.
Here is the output of lsuss (it's the eMPIA one):
Now this is essentially as far as I get, DBUS just says the following when I plug it in:
What I want to be able to do is open the (theoretical) output stream it produces in vlc and record it from there. Then I run into my next issue. There is no video* folder or link or file in my /dev directory and I can't stream video directly from the appropriate 'special file' inside /dev/bus/usb/00*/00*
1)i have used Arista-transcoder recently and whenever i used to convert some formate it shows me the message for the updater(Codecs).for this i add repository to Soft source after that it start downloading but meanwhile in downloading it shows me the error.Moreover,You can see the error in the pic,which i have attached...
2)is their any other converter which i can use for Both purposes(Audio&Video)other than Winff and Arista?
I've had no trouble with it until attempting to add new music to my banshee music library and ipod. I've copied the music into my music folder and tried to convert to MP3 with sound converter but it keeps popping up with the warning "Cannot overwrite source files". I tried to convert the files to MP3 directly from the cd but that didn't work either.
I would like to get one software using which we can converto file format to another. Like .mkv to .mpg and .avi to mpg or .3gp to .avi . converting one to another.The other software I need is about ripping and editing mp3.From DVD video or VCD format, i would like to extract only audio mp3 files and i would like to cut some unwanted portion of those mp3 files.Which software do I need? I dont want to install Ubuntu studio
