|Java GUI for encoding video using Mencoder/Mplayer||
This program is a simple java front-end for the free and very useful MPlayer
software, for the purpose of encoding video. Initially the focus is on
converting DVD into MPEG-4. MPlayer and Mencoder are available under the GNU
General Public License v2. Mencoder is primarily used on linux or related
unix platforms, but there are binaries for running on windows also.
There are many freely available frontends for this kind of functionality. The purpose of this exercise is to create one that try to be as cross-platform and simple as possible. This means excluding the use if a piece of software like Avisynth, which in it's current version is only available for windows.
The software is usable and works, but still fairly
basic in encoder options. Also users may have some problems getting nice
versions Mplayer/mencoder that provide the x264 encoding. However, the
software is under (intermittent) development and bug fix or feature requests
will be responded to if possible.
