Video Encoding made easy

There are several video/audio encoders available in Linux like Ffmpeg and Mencoder. But not everyone like the commandline version very much. But there are also GUI  front-ends for both these encoders. Avidemux and Vive are the GUI front-ends for Ffmpeg. And GMencoder is the GUI frontend for Mencoder. I built a deb package for these to install them on Ubuntu.

In order to use these tool you must install the Ffmpeg/Mencoder through Synaptic.

[Download Vive]

[Download GMencoder]

Also if you don’t want the GUI’s and stick with the commandline version. This page helps you to create custom commandline arguements for Mencoder.

    The full set of Mencoder frontends can be fount here
    But I think these are the best considering the gnome desktop and they have a cool and simple interface.
