Linux – ToVid for vcd creation



Linux.com has an article about ToVid, a utility to help convert video into VCD format. ToVid started out as just a VCD imager for mpeg files, but has expanded to be able to handle most video formats for input. It can also work with dvdauthor and other tools depending on whether you want to creat dvd or vcd’s.

You can download it from sourceforge (or it may be available in your distribution. It’s possible to add really polished effects like a menu as well. Most of this has been command line only, but now there is tovid-gui, which is in development (and currently available), to give a graphical front-end to the process.

Converting video files can take some time. In some cases it can be a longer process to convert than the viewing time of the video. The package also includes tools for getting information on video files and other useful utilities. If you’ve never used it before and have wanted something to use to work with video files, give it a try.
