thin liquid film (TLF) is an application which allows linux users to quickly and easily convert video files into a format suitable for playing on the video capable ipods. I wrote this application, after purchasing a video ipod, and being frustrated that the only real option for converting video was either via command-line, or via a servicemenu with no ability to configure the resulting video file. TLF uses the ffmpeg engine to do the encoding. It is written in pyqt, so it should work with a default kde installation, and is very easy to install.
features ...

* Batch process any number of files;
* Display detailed information about source video files;
* Change output settings for one or many files;
* Save default settings for future sessions;
* Configure output quality settings;
* Choose between mpeg4 and h264 as output codec;
* Choose between 320 and 640 output video width, while maintaining aspect ratio;
* Choose between 1 or 2 pass encoding;
* Preview encoded videos before encoding;
* Progress bar to show encoding progress;
* Uses ffmpeg as the encoding engine;
* Upload encoded files to your ipod directly;
* Set file information for upload to your ipod;
* Add files to existing or new video playlists on your ipod;
* Add pre-encoded videos to the transfer list;
* Add files for encoding via the included servicemenu.



This is the infamous 1.0 release of thinlqiuidfilm. I've finally identified the cause of the last known bug in tlf - relating to the progress bar. I think this is caused by *ubuntu's insistence on using the dash shell as default, rather than the bash shell. I've put a little routine in the install script to detect this, and guidance on how to fix it. Otherwise, the only other changes are some minor tweaks to the install script.

Next step is to widen the scope of tlf to be a task based gui for converting video to specific device formats or for specific formats. Hopefully, this will happen soon.


A bug fix release:

* Fixed a bug in the h264 ffmpeg arguments - missing dashes
* Fixed a bug with the progress dialog not showing up
* Added an .m4v file filter in the open file dialog for the file transfer list

If you still don't get a progress dialog when encoding files, please post a bug report with terminal output on the forum.

0.94 (RC3)

- The transfer panel now shows the total size of all files ready for transfer;
- I've updated the encoding options, so that they work with the latest version of ffmpeg - a fix for fedora 6;
- Lots of minor bug fixes.

0.93 (RC2)

There's been a bit of a change to the UI. Hopefully it looks a bit better. In addition to the UI tidy up, there's been a bit of polish done to other UI aspects particularly in relation to feedback on the results of an encode/transfer and other user input errors.

0.92 (RC1)

This is a bug fix release. The following bugs have been fixed:

- Codec list corrupted if only one codec is supported by ffmpeg;
- File list order fixed;
- File info errors fixed for other versions of ffmpeg;
- Version checking code is fixed.

0.91 (beta 2)

Bug Fixes:

- Fixed ffmpeg errors for versions of ffmpeg that don't support the -rc_max_rate option;
- Fixed file list ordering issues;

New Features:

- Preview encoded video before encoding files;
- Changed layout and workflow, so that you can add pre-encoded videos to the list to transfer to the iPod;
- Provide file meta data for files to be transferred.

0.90 (beta 1)

Initial release. Please report bugs that you find to the forums (see link below).

 Won't work Opensuse

 by helmerj on: May 7 2008

I have just recently discovered your app and would love to get it to work on Opensuse (10.2).
Whenever I try to add a file (xvid video) it lets me know, that the file I chose is not supported. Avidemux recodes the file just fine for the ipod...
I figured it might be a ffmpeg problem as "ffmpeg -h" returns no --enable-xvid but --enable-libxvid so I applied the patch described in the forums. But it still complains about the video files not being valid.

Has anybody gotten this to work on Opensuse or can point me in the right direction otherwise?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers J.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
