AnywhereDVD Converter

Postby elchucko on Wed Jan 09, 2013 10:18 pm

I have a program called AnywhereDVD Converter that runs on W7. It allows me to download a video with audio and while downloading, strip the video content saving only the audio. Is there a comparable app for Mint? Thank you

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I use the program "Handbrake" for my linux mint build here. That is a great DVD converter tool for linux. You can find that app and the .deb for it at this link here. http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php

That program handles any conversion format you need on your videos. For burning I use the included burning app called "Brasero."

DeVeDe is yet another good video converter for a DVD format on linux. It makes the proper VOB and Audio files in that app you can drag and drop to the above burning application. All of these apps above and below are native linux apps. I do not promote Wine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

For high definition to a blu ray disk or a regular dvd disk I use the linux version called "TsMuxeR" at this link here. http://www.videohelp.com/tools/tsMuxeR

You will have to use the CLI
Code: Select all
 sudo apt-get install lib32*
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
for this above program to work correctly if you are using a 64 bit linux build. These are your 32 bit libraries you will need for "TsmuxeR." The program only runs in a 32 bit mode. This is just a demux and remux tool for .mkv files that are common through the interwebs and torrents.

For an MKV extractor GUI check this link here. This will apply the correct audio codecs for your video projects under high definition using TsMuxer, you will need to convert the DTS audio codec to a AC3 using this tool if you are into 720p or 1080p to play correctly on a stand alone blu ray player or PS3. Here is the link for that . http://www.iloveubuntu.net/mkv-extracto ... -mkv-files

Finally I also have yet another audio codec conversion app called "WinFF" you can download for converting the audio for your video files. WinFF can be found here. http://winff.org/html_new/

Remember to download your video codecs through apt-get for the above tools. I fetch my video codecs through the CLI (command line interface.)
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install ffdshow
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


If the above code is not working try this link called ffdshow tryouts. http://ffdshow-tryout.sourceforge.net/download.php

Have fun :)

Wow, thank you for this information! Being new to the Linux Mint world, I've been meaning to ask: I notice when downloading Mint programs (Ubuntu?) from the internet they are zip files. When I un-zip the file how do I use these files to "convert" them to a useable format (runs on Linux)? I assume download the zip file, un-zip then via Terminal convert/install the package using sudo commands? Thank you

The included package managers for the .zip files should be able to handle a .zip file for you. I just choose to open up the packages above straight onto my linux mint build on the desktop when I download them. Just as long as the program is not .zip file for the windows OS. I got that ffdshow up and working for me on the linux mint build I am using for video development right now. Just go to the site and do some research and download the correct package for linux. If you need more tools the command prompts for that script should tell you upon installing it in your CLI. I think I might of installed a few more packages that way, its been awhile since I downloaded those above tools on my linux build.

Just try to run those above apps and they will tell you if you need more tools as you use them. Those apps are developed well and will prompt you for more additional tools you might need. That mkv extractor gui has its own built in CLI that will tell you if you need additional tools from the apt-get.

I think ffdshows codec is included with your linux mint VLC player that comes included with your linux mint build. You might not even need the above ffdshow, as those other programs will go fetch that codec straight from the codecs being used in VLC player. That was my bad. :)
