What is the best way using Linux to convert a DVD from NTSC to PAL format? I have a DVD made from an HD recording using a video camera. Made a standard DVD by copying from the Camera to the DVD recorder [ergo NTSC].
Is there any way to convert *.flv and *.mp4 videos to *.swf format please? I have some videos downloaded with .....-dl that are in the above format. I would like to make them all into SWF files, so anyone can watch them in their browser, without having to find a suitable multimedia player.
I have some .mp4 files. While open this file using vlc-player the resolution is fine. Then I convert this .mp4 format to .avi format using "ffmpeg". While open the .avi file using vlc-player the resolution is not fine.
just wondering is there a simple script to convert datetime to UTC format. I have been searching different forums but most answers are for converting UTC to datetime. For example what is a simple command/script to convert todays datetime to UTC format i.e. '2009-10-09 11:47:59'.
I guess many guys got lots of eBooks in PDF and other formats, but some e-readers like Sony Reader, Barnes & Noble Nook, Hanlin eReader and phones/devices using Android only support specific formats with their default reader apps, especially newly-released and hot iPad. What's the best way to convert those PDFs to ePub (ePub is the only ebook format iTunes accepts)?
I have a Humax HDPVR-1000C digital cable set-top box. Now I want to transfer some of the shows I had recorded with the box to a DVD. So I copy a movie from the Humax box to an external USB hard drive and then plug the hard drive to my OpenSUSE box. The hard drive now contains three files: one with the extension .hmt, one with the extension .nts and a fairly large file with the extension .ts.
After doing some googling I found out that the .hmt and .nts files are apparently related to Microsoft HighMAT technology. So it seems that the Humax box stores the recordings in M$ HighMAT format.
My question is that how do I fit these files to a DVD that can be played in a DVD player? VLC can play these files just fine, but really would like to burn them on a DVD.
I use Linux for my everyday work but lately I've been faced with a trouble when I send out file printouts from my browser from my Debian system to (normally) window$ systems, where they are not readable. Is there a way for me to convert the postscript files into pdf format? Most window$ users will have some sort of pdf reader installed but I am still to find one user that has Ghostscript and Ghostview installed. where can I find the TTF fonts that are shipped with every standard installation of Debian? I'm sometimes forced to print files through a windows system and because the fonts loaded in that system are not the ones I use in Debian (URW Gothic L, as an example) I end up having my official documents disfigured. If I can carry around with me a ready-to-install fonts package I can get over this obstacle.
I have an pdf file on my linux RHEL 4.7 machine. I can open that file but when i click on 'saveas' to save the file in 'Text' format there are no options i see there. I need to save the 'pdf' file to 'text' format. could anyone tell me how to save the pdf file to Text format. Iam using 'KDE'
I have a bunch of text files that I created with mousepad in xfce. I didn't really think I would need to share them, but I guess I have to. Is there anyway I can batch convert these to rtf so they could be viewed on a windows client?
I am trying to use John the Ripper but it doesn't take regular MD5 hashes, only shadow MD5 hashes. For example this hash: 900150983cd24fb0d6963f7d28e17f72 (which, decrypted, is 'abc') within a text file, John the Ripper does not detect because it is not shadow format. How can I convert this MD5 hash into shadow format?
Recently, my hard drive crashed. I was using XP and do not have my install discs (lost them 3 moves ago...). I make backups regularly and only lost roughly 3 days worth of material (nothing really important). On my other PC I've been running linux forever. I don't need windows and have installed a new HD in the PC and put fedora on there w/ no issues. Now historical email. There seems to be many workarounds for getting dbx files to mbox inside windows, but how would I accomplish this task without a windows install anywhere (Virtual installs are out as I do not have any install discs for windows anyways).
After a quick search, I only found one possible solution (in perl) and am looking for something that I don't have to program my self. I am a programmer by trade but have never programmed in perl (c++, FORTRAN, matlab, python... yes) and at this point, don't feel like learning new syntexs for this one problem (python has been my goto scripting language for everything linux...). Also if anyone has a link to a c++ lib(link to documentation?) that does the same thing... I might take a look at that and make a gui for it... then release it for others...
