Software News: Movie Encoder "mencoder"
Today a MorphOS version appeared of the movie encoder "mencoder" (which exists in a Linux package together with MPlayer). This resembles ffmpeg and includes 49 audio and 123 video codecs. Unfortunately it is far from easy to configure mencoder. One must write a configuration file containing all the parameters for each codec. (nba) (Translation: dm)
