MeGUI+Avisynth equivalent on Linux

Hello,
I've tried to look for equivalent programs to MeGUI and Avisynth on Linux but I didn't find a lot: console programs or front-ends who sucks... isn't there a program for Linux which allows me to (re)encode any video files to matroska?

I tried to use mencode but I need to compile mplayer with x264 support, too bad the compile process stops after 10 minutes with some errors in the code.

It was the rc1 which gave me that error... I'm a big noob with Linux and I came from Windows XP with Megui+Avisynth... it was quite a shock experience this jump (and crash)!

Dont worry... MeGUIx autoupdate will get all the needed files (including dependencies) and compiles them locally on your PC.
Im testing the compilation process on various distros to ensure it will work almost for everyone.

Ok I'm really looking forward this program... if I can help with the testing and the translation into italian I would be glad to help!

@Sharktooth
if you need any info about where slackware hides all its files (even tho i have only been using it a little while myself) i'll try and help out

@drakend
is it giving you an error with x264 itself (something about pointer blah) or is it doing it with ffmpeg?

the issue i had was with the ffmpeg i had compiled - although mplayer comes with it, so i just let it compile that and it went through ok

Carpo no the problems came with mplayer compilation, right after x264 one.

well you can try what i did

uninstall (if poss - i tend to make tgz (slackware files) so i can uninstall if i need to) x264 and ffmpeg

then compile mplayer normally - i tend to use ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-xvmc --enable-gui --enable-largefiles

and all seems to go fine, may not fix your problems but it did mine - then i just re-installed ffmpeg and x264 after mplayer - and all works

The best tool on linux at the moment is avidemux.

It has all the advantages of virtualdub and can do any video and audio codecs you want, and has great visual filter tools for crop,resize, etc...

Megui, staxrip, autogk, etc... are all nice, but avidemux does much more (you can cut, append videos, crop, filters, etc...) and is multi platform.

IMHO it's the best free tool for video conversion, cutting, etc... on windows and linux.

It should be included in your distro's repository. You can also find it here:

http://avidemux.org/


(In this thread you find the latest development build with the latest x264 (build 648 at the moment) for windows.
http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=108784&page=21)

(Linux devel builds are certainly available around here or you should be able to find some repositories with the latest devel builds, depending on your distro. You can also compile it yourself with the latest x264 if you need it.)
