32 <para>
33 <application>Transcode</application> was a fast, versatile and
34 command-line based audio/video everything to everything converter
35 primarily focussed on producing AVI video files with MP3 audio,
36 but also including a program to read all the video and audio streams
37 from a DVD.

45 Although outdated and no longer maintained, it can still be used to
46 extract items from a DVD using only the required and recommended
47 dependencies, or to recode to AVI files.

160 The details of how the <application>FFmpeg</application> libraries
161 are used has changed since this version of
162 <application>Transcode</application> was released. The patch allows the
163 package to be compiled, but some or all of the internal calls to
164 <application>FFmpeg</application> may fail at run time (they report an error
165 and processing continues, but without any output).
166 </para>
167
168 <para>
169 For many packages, that would be a critical error. In this case,
170 the main reason to install <application>Transcode</application> is for
171 the <command>tccat</command> program, which works. Some of the
172 <command>transcode</command> options work - for the others, use
173 <command>ffmpeg</command> directly on the command line.

177 <note>
178 <para>
179 Support for most of the dependency packages requires using
180 options passed to the <command>configure</command> script. View the
181 <filename>INSTALL</filename> file and the output from
182 <command>./configure --help</command> for complete information about
183 enabling dependency packages.
