Windows based "Media Coder" on Linux

Hi folks,

I've been able to install and run Media Coder using Wine. A useful How To is here:

I don;t frankly understand its full power, as I simply want to compress and convert some of my videos. Some of you gurus will find it very handy though.


PS I posted the url in the Mint How To section of the forum.

For Dayna to get Wine you need to do this instead:

Code: Select all

wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Code: Select all

sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
