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

46 Although outdated and no longer maintained, it can still be used to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

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

174 Support for most of the dependency packages requires using
175 options passed to the <command>configure</command> script. View the
176 <filename>INSTALL</filename> file and the output from

178 enabling dependency packages.
