Parent article: Transmageddon and Arista pursue simple transcoding
Command line encoders like FFmpeg and MEncoder can perform almost any conversion, but require the user to know exactly which options to enable, and, in most cases, demand that every codec switch be specified or else they fail to produce a usable result.
Don't I know it! (I'm a longtime MEncoder/MPlayer user who regularly recycles a script that contains a plethora of command-line switches whenever I'm transcoding video.)
Thanks for the article. I'm tempted to try out either of Transmageddon or Arista, assuming I can wade through the dependency hell I'm facing (I'm a KDE user and, if I understand correctly, these are GNOME/GTK apps).
