What is GnoMencoder?

GnoMencoder is a DVD ripping and video transformation utility. It is currently a mencoder front-end and it's a Gnome application written in C#. I started it as a quick hack for just not having to remember all the mencoder options and to learn C# in the process. Lots of features are missing.

Currently the main dependence is with Gnome but that can be reverted in any minute. A Qt# front-end should be fairly trivial. The encoding library can also be overriden to use anything but mencoder, thus eliminating the dependence.


The code is buggy and not very releasable, but developers are encouraged to try it and give feedback. It will be much appreciated.

Just point your CVS client to cvs.gnomencoder.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gnomencoder

You don't know how to use CVS but want to try it anyway? That's the spirit!

$ CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous@cvs.gnomencoder.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gnomencoder cvs login

Press enter when asked for password.

$ CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous@cvs.gnomencoder.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gnomencoder cvs co gnomencoder 

You'll have a fresh copy of the buggi^H^H^H^H^Hnewest stuff on the created gnomencoder directory.

See further instructions on the README.


I can't live without them, so here they are:

Old crap (this is a very old version)


GeSettings is a little sub-project of  GnoMencoder to create an easier wrapping to GConf#.
The classes are very new so there's a lot of work to do yet. But I encourage you to try them and give me feedback on where to work for improvement. Just check out GnoMencoder, and check the gesettings_gconf and gesettings_glade directories.
Documentation of it is here.
