Description:

kavi2svcd is a GUI for generating VCD/SVCD/DVD-compliant MPEG files from an AVI or MPEG file using transcode and mplex.
It can generate a Video CD image using vcdimager and burns to CD with cdrdao.

kavi2svcd supports the use of profiles, so that you can store your often used settings when transcoding files in a special workflow.

It supports an expert mode if you want to tweak much options and a basic mode, for the unpatient.

Kavi2svcd also offers a batch mode, where you can transcode large numbers of files one after the other automatically.

But please visit sourcforge, where you can get more information!

I'm having some trouble compiling kavi2svcd 0.8.7 on Fedora Core 5.

I installed all development packages, including kdevelop-3.3.4-0.1.fc5, but, after running:
aclocal
autoconf
automake
and successfuly running ./configure,
when I tried to compile with make, I got the following error:

make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/temp/kavi2svcd/kavi2svcd'
Making all in autom4te.cache
make[2]: Entering directory `/root/temp/kavi2svcd/kavi2svcd/autom4te.cache'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `all'. Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/temp/kavi2svcd/kavi2svcd/autom4te.cache'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/temp/kavi2svcd/kavi2svcd'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Any ideas what the problem can be?
Thanks.

there is a wizard to create an vcd or svcd .

vcd is a bit out of time these days .

so a update to create an ksvcd which seems to be possible would be nice ..

have to say that i use this program for some years now , first movie ever was converted with this nice program ..

Have you tried to change the "tools" on the transcode tab from mpeg to kvcd?
Maybe it is not at the right place in the gui.

I appreciate to hear, that this program was helpful for you such a long time :-)

Hope you'll like 0.8.5

Hi,
I was asked this some time ago.
But I will have to do some code rewrite (which is on my roadmap), so it will be easier for _somebody_ to integrate it into k3b.

It is open source.

I never got familiar with using k3b, so my ambition isn't that high! :-)

Moreover, kavi2svcd is no burning program. It is a conversion program.

So, to keep a long story short: I will not do it within one or two years.

Regards
Cornelius

Hi Cornelius

I get this error during make (see below). What do you think it is? If it's the lack of qt/kde 3.2 or better, is there a work around? I'm currently stuck on 3.1.

Thanks,

Hi Cornelius

I did but as a noob I wouldn't really know if I did it correctly.

Are there more specific instructions I can follow?

Thank you,

Ok, but I have one more question. Does it have support for calculating avarage video/sound bitrate for one cd svcd or sth?

(like the film machine for windows, you can see it: http://divx.howto.pl/arts_images/timemachine/svcd/6.png)

(sorry for that I didn't test it myself. I'm using gentoo and transcode have a lot of dependences that I don't want to compile if kavi2svcd doesn't have options that I need :>).

hi again,

see this http://www.cornelinux.de/web/linux/kavi2svcd/bilder/Transcode-tab.png image.

You can enter the audio and video bitrate and it will calculate the file size of the video.

You can either enter the file size you want to produce and it will fill in the video bitrate.

But the prediction of the filesize is not 100% reliable.

Cornelius

Support for inserting subtitles would be nice.

If you use the context menu on the transcode tab, you can insert subtitles...

feel free, to test it! :-)
