Hi

I,m looking for a software solution for use in Ubuntu like this software for Windows: Easyworship (http://www.easyworship.com/)
Does anyone know about such software for Ubuntu?

SMILE (http://smile.tuxfamily.org) looks about right. Never got it to display inserted graphics though.

It's basically a video slideshow creator that can reuse existing video, pictures and sounds/music. The devleoper is French and he writes everything in French. EN interface is available though.

Thanks for your reply. It's possible that Smile could be the solution.

Another question: Is there a software available for television studio? I'm thinking of av software that can show media in a preview and media in a live section. The live section is on the screen 2 or an projector.

EasyWorship is terrible software, as someone who works in the industry I am not a fan.
MeadiaMonkey is a great free Windows alternative, and OpenOffice Impress has a Presentation Mode, to allow you to preview everything, and have something different outputting on the second head,
PM me for more info.
Cheers,
Nick

I think you could try playing with either of VJ applications: FreeJ, LiVES, Veejay.

I use Easy Worship and don't plan on changing. I will stick with my windows box for the presentation and plan to record the sermon on a ubuntu machine.

I found a software for Mac, called Boinx (http://www.boinx.com/boinxtv/overview/).

Anyone know of a similar software for Ubuntu?

Yes I did, but my french is a bit poor... :o
I understand there is a english translation for the software, but the web page is only french?

Have you tryed the likes of openlp ran through wine also opensong both are windows programs(openlp was going to do linux at some stage). I have had openlp runing in ubuntu before its a bit slow though. I have tryed Lyricue in the past and found it very hard to understand ( you need two programs running one for GUI other for display) may have changed since I last tryed.
hope this helps
Ps Smile is like Windos photostory not what you want at all

I have been searching for software like media shout and easy worship for a while for my church. Closest I've found is openlp - it's windows only right now but version 2.0 is being developed in python and runs in linux and macosx. Grab the svn and try it out.

http://openlp.org/en/download.html

Get the nightly build. It's gradually adding features. I can't wait till it's done.

I've been using OpenSong with good success. It can't do videos but for lyrics, verses, announcements, etc. it is great. Also works for pictures. Plus, it has a nice 2-screen mode for adding songs on the fly, etc.
http://www.opensong.org/
The download page is still on sourceforge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/opensong/
And there's a .deb file on this page:

Don't grab the svn, that is an old repository. OpenLP now uses bzr on launchpad. However as redxine said, the latest v2 code is on the download page (http://openlp.org/en/download.html) which links to instructions on how to install. Although v2 is still being developed, it does work in Ubuntu and is now quite functional.
