ConvertMe!
Nautilus Scripts
Score 56%
Description:

ConvertMe! is a new video converter frontend based on FFmpeg. It intergrates with your Nautilus File Manager, allowing you to convert any video file by simply right-clicking on it! ConvertMe! supports multiple inputs and all the popular output formats!!

ConvertMe only requires around 10MB hard disk space, even if it installs many packages

The purpose of ConvertMe! is to simplify the converting process for the users.

I do not profit from this software. So in return please help me with rates, blames or any suggestions! (...may be presets)


===============================================================

Supported output formats :

OGV / OGG / MP4 / MKV / AVI / MP3 / WAV / FLV / MOV / MPEG-2 / WMV / JPEG Image Sequence

Inbuilt presets :

Youtube (Facebook) / Smart Phones (iDevices) / Standard Mobiles / HDTV DVD Players / Standard DVD Players

===============================================================
INSTALLATION

Just extract the tar.gz file and double click to run 'Install' file in the Terminal

I think the one who developed this should ROT in hell. I wasted 2 hrs converting a file and discovered that the file was converted only for the first 18 minutes of the video. I think you are an A*s**le.

Dude, chill out. It's not even the devs fault, probably something with ffmpeg.

Do you have a serious anger management issue or something?

Thanks for the nice GUI replacement for terminal screens.

But the current installation script (Ubuntu/Debian) removes the Nautilus script (although it still works), so I deleted that line as well as the line for installation of dependencies as I've already installed them.

I have no coding knowledge other than being a curious reader of scripts like this, but perhaps you can further improve this part by checking first if the dependencies have already been installed and then installing them if they don't exist -- as in this code:

Quote:for dep in xxx; do
if which "$dep" &>/dev/null; then
true
else
echo "Dependency $dep not found; attempting to install now."
sudo apt-get install xxx
fi

Yes, but I'm not a script pro, so I haven't thought about checking for dependencies. However, if dependencies are already available in your system, they won't get removed. Nothing will be changed.
I may remind again ; please use MP4-H264 preset in case you need a smaller file size. Thanks for being my 1st app reviewer! :D

1) The fact that 35 additional packages are required (Ubuntu 12.04) might look scary at first but the total disk space required is just under 7MB.

2) Using Nautilus script didn't do a thing, but apparently the reason was executable file in /usr/bin folder was not made executable, so it was an easy fix.

3) It could be better without displaying the terminal screen, as in "Audio/Video/Image/Text/ISO Convert" Nautilus script (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/?content=92533)

4) I converted an approx. 10MB MPG file to FLV with these 2 scripts: AVConvert gave me approx. 3MB file while this one created approx. 17MB file. It might be a good idea to make further comparisons.

5) Nevertheless this script can be useful due to extra options provided.

Thanks...

Thanks for the first impressions!! Well, this is my first app on Linux.

I don't know how did you find out the cause of the script issue, but it is due to the messed up debian package. I've removed it. The installation script works better than the deb package.
I'm working on, to display a progress bar instead of the terminal window.
If you need a lower file size, you should use something like the MKV container, or mp4 with H.264 compression. You can also lower the quality of the video, or specify a bitrate as you like. If you choose [MP4 - Best Quality - H264] that will result the lowest possible file size on earth. No converter, will be able to compress more than that, maintainning the same quality.

Thanks.
I think there was no problem with the DEB package other than this minor issue.
Many users might prefer using a DEB package instead of an installation script.

My friend, I have thought a lot what you suggested. After spending a day, I worked out the progress bar! Additionally, now it gives a video preview too..
Unlike Windows, I feel harder to code in Linux.. but I never ended up with such a functional program in Windows.
Thanks for you suggestions!
