Re: RFS: winff
I know I should be patient and that Lenny recently has been frozen, but
this is my first package for Debian and I would appreciate some feedback
on how I have done after a month waiting. I therefore take the liberty
to send this mail with my request for comments (or of course sponsorship).
For completeness I have added the full description of the winff package
winff - video and audio batch converter using ffmpeg
WinFF is a graphical user interface for FFmpeg. It will convert
almost any video file that FFmpeg will convert. WinFF does multiple
files in multiple formats at one time. You can, for example, convert
mpeg's, flv's, and mov's into avi's (or DVD/VCD format or MPEG or 3gp
etc.) all at once.
This package provides a variety of preset conversion settings for
common formats and devices. These presets are intended to hit the
"sweet spot" for each individual codec. They have been written with a
tip of the balance to quality.
