Ubuntu Multimedia :: Converter For Video And Audio Formats
Oct 12, 2010
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 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.
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 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 want to know if there is any application from which I can view/convert the JBG Images to any other format. I have installed XnView and Image Magick. XnView does no support the JBG Images and Image Magick gives error while converting the image.
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.
I think that the biggest problem that I have had is that some of the music (and audio books) that I have gotten have not played on my walkman, or have not been able to be downloaded in to I-tunes.
First: I hate itunes... I only try to make it work because I love my wife. (and do not want her to hit me)
Second: I know that my Walkman has a very limited range of files that it can play, so I will need to convert some types of files.
But my basic questions:
* How can I figure out what format a file is in? * Below that, how can I identify the singular characteristics of a file? (bit rate, and other formats...) * Is there a best way to switch the formats or format options of these files. (I am currently using sox to do this, it seems to very complete)
Basically. I know nothing! The most that I do not know is that two files that as far as I can tell have the same formats, and should work the same never the less, one of them works, the other does not. I am looking to figure out a way to look at these files (maybe they are mislabeled) and figure out what their real format is (and a more complete format than just being MP3 or such) and then to be able to convert it in to a format that is able to be used by myself and/or my wife.
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 installed Perl Audio Converter, The system recognizes the install, When I type perl in the terminal it says "Perl is already the newest version" And the perl files appear in my "bin" directory, However the program does not appear in the menu, Is this a common problem?, How do I fix it?
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'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 have a video file in which the audio runs faster than the video, so they quickly go out of sync. The way to fix it would be to separate the audio and video streams, speed up the video (the audio is FINE, it's the video that's wrong), and then recombining them. What is the easiest way for doing that?
Is there an application that anyone knows about that I can use to convert either an .flv or .ogg file that contains both audio and video to just an audio .ogg file (preferably vorbis+theora) without audacity? I'm fairly certain audacity could accomplish this but it seems like overkill for what I'm trying to do and the computer I'm trying to use does not run it so well.
::EDIT:: I should also mention that I've tried looking on google. I did find downloadhelper extension for firefox which uses ffmpeg to convert the files but I don't see any obvious way to strip the video.
How can I edit the song info found in MP3 files and other audio file formats in Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit other then using Rhythmbox?
It's a pain to use Rhythmbox to edit the artist, album, year, Genre and other info of each song because you have to find the song by it name and then change the info. There is no way to put it in a view as folder or drive name or partition so you can simply go to where the files them selves are on the drive and edit mutiple files at the same time without having to search for each song individuly.
In XP all you need to do is right click and select properties and then edit the info there but in Linux all you can do is view the info under properties.
