hello people

we have someone here from beyondTV
and we're investigating linux video , as a mean of creating resources for social centres, very cool. One thing tho is we want to get Gmencoder working so we can do GUI video conversion to Real media , quicktime etc. I tried installing and got:

Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnomeui-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgnomeui-2.0' found

I'm a bit wary of installing this as i am worried about hosing my system. Any you guys have any ideas? ta v.much

steve

ps also are there any low level firewire debugging experts here? we are having really inconsistent results capturing video

I tried to compile gmencoder but ran into the same problem. It looks like its looking for some old package that's just in an older gnome.

I don't know of any other GUIs for mencoder, but I'll keep my eyes open. Mencoder is an extremely powerful encoder, no doubt...

I use a script like:

Code:
mencoder $VID \
        -ovc lavc \
        -lavcopts \
vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=1:vhq:vbitrate=2000:v4mv:mpeg_quant:vqmin=2:vlelim=-4:vcelim=9:lumi_mask=0.05:dark_mask=0.01 \
        -vf lavcdeint,hqdn3d,crop=688:464:12:4,scale=352:240 \
        -sws 7 \
        -ssf cgb=3.0 \
        -oac mp3lame \
        -lameopts q=6:aq=0:mode=1:highpassfreq=0:lowpassfreq=0 \
        -o $OUT

mencoder $VID \
        -ovc lavc \
        -lavcopts \        vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=2:vhq:vbitrate=2000:v4mv:mpeg_quant:vqmin=2:vlelim=-4:vcelim=9:lumi_mask=0.05:dark_mask=0.01 \
        -vf lavcdeint,hqdn3d,crop=688:464:12:4,scale=352:240 \
        -sws 7 \
        -ssf cgb=3.0 \
        -oac mp3lame \
        -lameopts q=6:aq=0:mode=1:highpassfreq=0:lowpassfreq=0 \
        -o $OUT


In this example I'm cropping and applying some different filters. The source video sucked in this case (from VHS of "Videograms of a Revolution").

ok nice one jeff. it might be worth emailing the author, it would really help being able to use a GUI at first anyway
