Multimedia Bonus Disc RC 2.3 has been released!

At long last, it's finally here. A new installer, many updated programs and a set of new ones are just a few of the things that comprise this release. Give it a spin! The installer will give you the choice to install almost 200 of the best multimedia programs or for the more advanced, it will allow one to chose individual packages. Testing will be greatly appriciated. Thanks!

Download the ISO here:

Thanks rbistolfi, let me know how it works. If anyone is interested, visit the site for a complete (I think) list of all programs included. http://dweeberkitty.110mb.com/features.html

Installer worked well, and all the programs I have used so far do also.

Thanks,

Guys, I'd like to as but I'd hate to hijack this thread... so if I do, please move this to another place...

Here is what I need to do
I have 2 video mini-dvd disks whose contents I want to transfer to a full-sized DVD (make 1 out of 2 disks)
Also, I'd like to pick some of that content and put it aside (for another disc)...

Does this bonus disc have the tools I need to do that?
I'll need to create a DVD using the VOB files, which i've tried in the past without any success.

You know MOE-lnx, I don't know exactly how to do that, but I'll bet that if you find the answer somewhere it'll tell you to use some of the tools on the disc. Possibly you can open the VOB files in Kino and export them as a DVD quality and then use ManDVD or QDVDAuthor to export it to a dvd. Also Kino provides a DVD export option which will export the files (if you splice them together or whatever you want first) directly to a dvd without a menu. But to answer your question, I can almost guarantee that the bonus disc has the tools for what you want to do. There are quite a few programs on there, so pretty much you would have a good selection of choices that would help you get the job done. Also there are some programs that will rip a DVD to an avi file or an mpeg or something and then you can run it back off to a regular dvd (after your editing of course) like you want to. Give it a try and I'll help as much as I can.

1. mount the mini-dvd
Code:
mount /dev/hdx /mnt/cdrom
Where x is the letter of your CD drive.

2. Copy the file to your hard drive.

3. Edit the individual files. I use Avidemux which is on the disk.
For some reason I have to re-encode the files to half D1 size to avoid a stuttering effect. And I have to burn to DVD+R even though my standalone DVD player should play DVD+ or -R. Use a DVD+-RW to experiment with.  Save the files in the MPEG-PS (A+V) format.

4.Use something like DVDstyler (on the disk) to author the DVD.
It will stitch the files together and let you create menus.

Thats a pretty polished looking web site Dweeberkitty. I will have to download your disk when I get home tommorow.

Thanks. Let me know how it works for you. Also, I'm in the process of making this SOHO compatible. There are a couple strange things if you are using KDE.

Let us know when the SOHO Compatible is ready.. I'm testing 5.9 now.

Just installed the MMBD. Lots of goodies there (still haven't done anything with any program, but it's loaded).
I would have preferred not to install KDE on my laptop, but I chose the full install so Sad
But that's fine.

A couple of suggestions:
* Switch to zenity instead of Xdialog. Zenity looks better
* Offer an option to uninstall. Since this is a very specific bundle of packages, you should be able to do this easily.
Nice work Dweeberkitty. Will test the applications later.

I have'nt had time to try too much yet. I did the full install.

Ditto!!
I am interested in a lot of this stuff but not all of it. After a trial period one might wish to remove the bulk of it and install just what you wish.
Nothing requiring JACK seems to work.
The tovid GUI does'nt start from the menu.
The virtual keyboard is silent (does it require jack?)

Other than that everything seems okay on first glance.

I think you have to give jack the proper permissions to run with real time priority. I have some notes around, I can post them later if I find them. Perhaps we could script the process and tell jack install script to do it. In the while, try starting jack as root or the app that uses jack -like ardour2 or rosegarden- as root, just to see if the permissions are the issue.
I dunno which app are you referring to, but surely the virtual keyboard just send midi messages. You need to connect it to a midi instrument to get sound. A midi instrument takes the midi messages and render the information to get an audible sound. There is both, software and hardware midi instruments to accomplish this.

Try loading up QJackctl and start the jack server. The problem is that jack is not running and it has to be running for those programs to work. Also, when using QJackctl, try disabling the option to use realtime priority, that usually fixes issues with starting jack from Qjackctl. Give that a try and tell me if it fixes the problem with the jack programs.

The tovid GUI does'nt start from the menu.

Yup, that's a known issue. It seems that tovid GUI needs wxPython, which I never was able to successfully build a package that tovid liked. Maybe if I should just remove that entry if I can't get it working.

A couple of suggestions:
* Switch to zenity instead of Xdialog. Zenity looks better

Yes, I agree, zenity looks better. I'll work on that.

* Offer an option to uninstall. Since this is a very specific bundle of packages, you should be able to do this easily.

Sorta kinda.....there are some apps that I would NOT remove after installation, such as xine-lib, kdelibs, ffmpeg etc... Those are some of the apps that I upgraded from ones included on VL. Maybe if I do an uninstall option, I can remove everything except those ones that I upgraded on the iso. There's not that many of them that I did that on, but still, I'd have to make sure I didn't remove those. I'll see what I can do.

Thanks for the testing guys!  Smiley

BTW, if you come accross some application for converting 3pg videos into AVI or MPEG and vise-versa, I'm very interested in something that can do that

Try FFmpeg, also another alternative might be Mencoder. I believe that FFmpeg supports 3pg, and with it, you can convert from practically any format to another. I don't know the syntax though to do it.
