Katiuska is a theora encoder frontend. It uses ffmpeg2theora, mencoder, the encoder_example that comes with the theora libs and a little gpl bash script that I found with google.
It can encode mostly any kind of video that ffmpeg and mencoder can (avi, mpeg4 and 2, quicktime etc).
Katiuska is also now a DVD ripping tool with an easy to use interface and default settings. Just select your audio and subtitle language if any and you're good to go.
This is my first app ever so it might not work for you at all :)
IMPORTANT: You need to install the theora library, kommander from kde 3.4 to make it work and lsdvd for the dvd ripping part.
For installation: Just run ./setup.sh as root and then type "katiuska" to use it.
