Tovid is a program I have always liked. 
I am using VL7.0 standard with XFCE

The buildbot has built this for both the 32 and 64b editions.

You can grab them by adding the untested repository to your slapt-getrc

The version in the Vector repositories (0.34-i586-1vl70) has stopped working.  The program runs, but it will not encode the movies.  A more recent version from here does work, however.

Pls give details of error while running tovid...

I've already gotten rid of the Vector package of tovid, and installed the newer one (tovid svn-r3493) from subversion.  So, I can't give the exact error it kept giving me.  However, whether I ran the gui or ran it from command line, it gave the same error.  The error came about when it was trying to encode the video, claiming that the there was some sort of mismatch and the video could not be encoded.  I did successfully encode the same video with the newer tovid, however.  When I checked the Google Tovid Group, there were some posts on this subject, stating that due to ffmpeg's perpetual evolution, that many encoding issues could be solved via installing latest tovid from subversion.
