Ubuntu Multimedia :: Alternative To AVS Video Converter?
Feb 6, 2011
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.
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.
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.
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 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
I've been working on a small program to perform a very specific and useful task of quickly and efficiently converting videos to go on any Apple Ipod or Iphone. This includes both classic and 5th generation Ipods as well. Ibulk is a command-line only program but incredibly easy to use and runs off FFmpeg with AAC functionality. The program comes with a Read Me file which will explain its options and instructions in concise detail. Ibulk converts several videos in its input folder to the desired H.264 or XviD video encoding to its output folder. All videos are created in mp4 format with 160Kbps 48000Hz audio sound quality (highest setting an Ipod can handle) and both video encoders at the highest bitrate an Ipod can handle with the exception of some videos which will be auto-adjusted to meet the Ipod's requirements. Ibulk is written in the native unix/linux language and so it should work on any linux distro.
I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a rmvb video converter that works with ubuntu. There is a windows rmvb converter, but when I try to use it through wine it either crashes while converting or just doesn't work period.
I am looking for a video converter that will convert AVI into DVD format to burn a disc. I had a program called convert X for windows 7 and with that I was able to make menu's for the DVD and when it finished converting, it would burn it to a disc.
i am using Ubuntu 11.04 on my computer system. I urgently need a good video converter for converting videos.I have already installed FFmpeg and men-coder,Winff etc. The problem is each has its own drawback.For instance ffmpeg cannot convert a .avi to .3gp with audio working. My preferences are the converter should be user friendly, should support all popular video formats.
I'm currently using handbrake (with the gui) to convert some video files to mpg4. It takes about 2 hours to convert an average movie is there anything a little speedier? I'm running a core2duo processor.
[URL] I'm going to be purchasing a usb to S-video converter in the near future, the link above is one such product. I'd like something which will work with linux. The application is for a camera (s-video out (only)) to a laptop.
is there a linux avi to iphone video converter? specifically .avi to .mp4? cause my iphone would only sync to itunes I was trying out windows based ones. but they all claim to be free then only convert the first 5 mins then demand money. so is there a linux one that will do the whole thing then I simply transfer the .mp4 file over to my virtual windows?
Is there any converter which can handle audio and video files like Total video Convertor in windows?I am looking for a gui tooli want to convert wma to wav and mp3 for now...i do lots of format conversions
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.
