Description:

Katiuska is a theora encoder frontend. It uses ffmpeg2theora, mencoder, the encoder_example that comes with the theora libs and a little gpl bash script that I found with google.

It can encode mostly any kind of video that ffmpeg and mencoder can (avi, mpeg4 and 2, quicktime etc).

Katiuska is also now a DVD ripping tool with an easy to use interface and default settings. Just select your audio and subtitle language if any and you're good to go.

This is my first app ever so it might not work for you at all :)

IMPORTANT: You need to install the theora library, kommander from kde 3.4 to make it work and lsdvd for the dvd ripping part.

For installation: Just run ./setup.sh as root and then type "katiuska" to use it.




Changelog:

0.7.6: encoder should work with latest mplayer too now
0.7.5: should work with latest mplayer
0.7.4: looks like I forgot to include some scripts to scan DVDs :( , should be fixed now :) (expect a *BSD version soon)
0.7.3: fixed a regression bug, encoded file not correctly saved to the right location (screenshot updated to show device selecter combo, script copied from "Set CD-ROM Speed" :))
0.7.2: added combobox to select your dvd device
0.7.1: added cancel button, updated screenshot :)
0.7: added dvd ripping feature
0.6.1: fixed a little bug that didn't save the output file in the right place when no output name were specified
0.6: katiuska now support metadata information ie tagging thanx to the new ffmpeg2theora
0.5: the interface is a bit more
userfriendly now :)
0.4: ability to select an output directory for your encoded file
now installs into $KDEDIR/share/apps/kmdr-katiuska/ as requiered by el Se�r Laffoon :)
0.3: you can now use float values for audio and video quality
0.2: crop's now working

 script?

 
 by SWaN on: Nov 15 2004
 
Score 50%

What about adding a simple shell script that launches .kmdr file,
instead of adding an alias in /etc/profile? It's much safer!
It should look like that:

#!/bin/sh

A_PATH=/opt/kde/share/apps/quanta/scripts
APP=katiuska.kmdr
L_PATH=/opt/kde/bin
LAUNCHER=kmdr-executor

if [ ! -x $L_PATH/$LAUNCHER ] ; then
echo "Kommander Executor not found"
exit
else
$L_PATH/$LAUNCHER $A_PATH/$APP
fi

that looks great but not all distro have "/opt/kde/share/apps/quanta/scripts", as an example in debian it's in another place as there is no /opt. how could I detect that?

Just chose a directory to put kmdr file in (or where kmdr files are by default) and substitute this path in A_PATH. The same for L_PATH: just chose kmdr-executor path, or simply leave it blank, if this app is in your path.

ADDENDUM - to detect kmdr scripts' dir, try with 'locate kmdr'

Replace /opt/kde/share/apps/quanta/scripts
with $KDEDIR/share/apps/quanta/scripts
if $KDEDIR is set. If it's not,
$KDEDIRS should be set, in that case all entries from $KDEDIRS + "/share/apps/quanta/scripts" should be searched.

is there a way to get $KDEDIR if it's not set from a .kde conf file or something? or do i need to use locate?

kde-config ---prefix
or maybe even better all directories from
kde-config --path data

see kde-config --types for a list of resource types you can get paths for.

We need to finish our project tools, but here is how we handled it for the simple intaller. Install to
$KDEDIR/share/apps/kmdr-katiuska
The idea being that in the future we want to have kmdr-executor without arguments list all kmdr-* directories with application information. I hope in the coming weeks to release an up to date installer release.

There are other advantages to this. You can have multiple dialogs installed there and call them with @dialog(name.kmdr) and this will work great. You can even have other resources there.

To run the program create a script named katiuska and put it in /usr/bin.
#!/bin/sh
kmdr-executor $KDEDIR/share/apps/kmdr-katiuska/katiuska.kmdr

Maybe you'll want to help us with the installer too. ;-)

Hi,
Something like:
$(kde-config --expandvars --install data)/quanta/scripts/

#!/bin/sh

kdeinstdir=`kde-config --prefix`

A_PATH=$kdeinstdir/share/apps/quanta/scripts
APP=katiuska.kmdr
L_PATH=$kdeinstdir/bin
LAUNCHER=kmdr-executor

if [ ! -x $L_PATH/$LAUNCHER ] ; then
echo "Kommander Executor not found"
exit
else
$L_PATH/$LAUNCHER $A_PATH/$APP
fi

This way it should work on all distributions.

 Suggestion

Do not write "optional" in the output file label. Just fill the field with the default name.
I think it makes more sense as being coherent with most UI I've seen. Maybe it's in the HIG, I don't remember.

 freebsd

i like katiuska very much, but it is almost impossible to make it work in freebsd :(
the first problem is, that you offer two binaries with katiuska (which kind of conflicts the concept of kommander, being not binary...); i couldnt find source for encoder_example and i was not able to build ffmpeg2theora on freebsd (trying to point it at the patched and built ffmpeg freebsd-port gave me loads of unresolved symbols during make). after installing the linux campatability layer in freebsd and copying/linking the full /lib und /usr/lib from my old ubuntu system to /compat/linux in freebsd ffmepg2theora and encoder_example finally work :) and converting files in katiuska works!!!
but dvd reading doesnt work yet...
what devices does katiuska look for? i created a symlink from /dev/cd0 to /dev/dvd and have aproriate entries in my fstab...
thanks for your help and for making katiuska!

Do you have lsdvd installed? Katiuska uses lsdvd. Try "lsdvd" in konsole and see what happens.

 Well Done, mint app.

I really like this application, its very simple and effective.

Suggested Improvements:
-----------------------

* Better status window or progress bar, even if it was a command line bar.
* Ability to rip without encoding
* Video preview to preview resulting quality.

Apart from that it is very good.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
