Compatibility links for libav-tools (transitional package)
  3 reviews

Ffmpeg is the leading multimedia framework, able to decode, encode, transcode, mux, demux, stream, filter and play pretty much anything that humans and machines have created. it supports the most obscure ancient formats up to the cutting edge.

this is a transitional package that provides the following links:
* avconv -> ffmpeg
* avplay -> ffplay
* avprobe -> ffprobe
this package can be removed, when nothing uses the av* program names anymore.

This codec is awesome - encodes and decodes tons of media file formats and more....! :)

This set of tools are command line only and the full help for their options makes up I'd say around 100 screens of closely packed info - of which you'll probably only ever use 10 to 15. Just my kind of tool :) Btw: I prefer libav over the closely related ffmpeg tools, mostly because of the philosophy behind the development. Also ffmpeg seems a little slower in adapting new features. But from the enduser's perspective there is very little difference.
