KmPg2 is a user friendly MPEG2 encoding wizard that enables the user to easily create high quality DVD compatible MPEG2 streams from any input video file.

Creating high quality MPEG2 streams involves a lot more than simply feeding the input video to mpeg2enc/transcode/mencoder/etc. The input video needs to be carefully prepared by pulling it through a chain of stream processing tools like low-pass filters, color correction filters, static and dynamic chroma and luma noise filters, scalers, and so on. This processing chain needs to be tuned in such a way that all irrelevant data (like noise) is removed before the video enters the encoder. KmPg2 uses the video processing / encoding tools from the MJPEGTools project to achieve this.

KmPg2 features a 'profiler' that enables the user to interactively create custom pre-processing pipelines that are optimised for a specific type of video material. These preprocessing pipelines (profiles) can be stored and used with the actual encoding wizard. For example, you could create a profile that is designed especially for restoring a single aging VHS tape, or you could create a profile tuned for your digital camcorder and re-use it for every new recording that needs to be encoded.

As far as I know, DVDAuthor does not support colorful subtitles. You will have to live with plain white for now.

This is some good stuff for movies!
Not so great for a series though. Could you add:

File lists
projected finished size

So those of us who try to sqeeze a whole season of 1/2 hour video could do it with ease?

good work. I'm using your excellent tool since months on a AMD64 Debian Etch system and I'm desperately waiting for a new version which supports mencoder as well as ffmpeg ???

is it possible to encode hd movies without scaling them to 576p?
Will this be possible in future? it would be amazing!!!!
Please!! :)

 Will not run

Getting error "You don't have the utility "y4mscaler" installed!" But it is installed. What do I have to do so that KmPg2 can find it?

Yes I read the "read ME =" and the "install" documents, But they are, at best, confusing.

The command:

y4mscaler -h

should give you usage hints for y4mscaler. It this does not happen, the application is not installed correctly. Please ask your distributor.

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.
