OggConvert 0.3.2 released
OggConvert version 0.3.2 “…and some blood on my shirt” has been released.
This is the latest release of OggConvert, a simple Gnome utility to convert media files into the patent-free Theora, Dirac and Vorbis formats.
Dirac encoding requires version 1.0.0 or newer of the Schroedinger encoder for GStreamer.
OggConvert is written in Python using PyGTK and PyGST. It is released under the GNU LGPL.
What’s new in this version:
- (Hopefully) fix time remaining being way off on AMD64. Closes bug #250174.
- Fix (MPEG) files occasionally showing “120% Completed” and other such oddities.
- Dirac is no longer considered “experimental” now that the encoder has reached v1.0. Go ahead and try it out!
- Use “perceptual weighting” in the Dirac encoder by default. This should result in much smaller output files (and slightly quicker encoding) at equivalent quality settings.
- OggConvert’s quality settings now match ffmpeg2theora’s.
- New translations: Catalan, Franco-Provençal, Hebrew, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Norwegian Bokmal, Slovak, Serbian, Turkish and Traditional Chinese. Many thanks to all the translators.
- Other minor bug fixes
