View Full Version : [ubuntu] Alternative to AVS Video Converter

February 6th, 2011, 06:32 AM
So I still have a windows partition for two reasons: 1) Steam I know you can run this on wine and I have tried that, but I can;t run valve games at max everything (including AA and Filtering) and I like my good graphics so there is not much I can do about that. The other reason is AVS Video Converter, I've fallen in love with it, it converts anything to anything quickly and flawlessly, but I want an alternative to it for Ubuntu, something that works flawlessly just like AVS, to refine my needs more, I use it to convert video for my PSP.

Have you tried 'WinFF' I have used it for a long time.
It is a GIU for ffmpeg. You can get WinFF from the Ubuntu repos
and also you can install it for that other windows OS.

How about FFmpeg? AVS Video Converter uses FFmpeg to convert videos. Unfortunately, AVS Video Converter is a proud member of the FFmpeg Hall of Shame (http://ffmpeg.org/shame.html) and is currently violating the FFmpeg license.

There are hundreds of similar converters and most are made by the same guys in China.
