    Nice to see they can't even spell their own project name correctly, on their blog.

        Can it scale the video files? E.g. from full hd to a dvd size? (& keeping aspect ratio)

          Yes, this page explains how (http://www.linuxrising.org/advanced.html). If there is a transformation (size+codec combination) you find particularly useful for a wide audience let me know and I will add a standard preset for it.

            Yes, you can find information about how to do it under the 'Advanced' tab on the Transmageddon homepage.

              Does it support AMDs hardware acelerated encoding?

                Well I got a dvd player that can only (apart from dvd video&video cd) play xvid/mp3 in avi containers but it only plays a maximum resolution of the dvd-video (720x576), I often transcode downloaded youtube moves etc into this format. I wrote scripts for myself that use ffmpeg to do this, but if your tool can do a better/faster/less hassle (e.g. detect if the movie file is too large & set the proper aspect ratio for resizing) job then I'd gladly use it :-).

                  Well it relies on whatever GStreamer plugins you have installed and as far as I know there is no GStreamer plugins (apart from maybe the commercial ones from Fluendo?) that supports AMD hardware
                  encoding. The only hardware encoder I have tested and which do works is the one from Intel.

                    Well if you write a xml file specifying xvid video, mp3 audio, avi container and a max resolution of 720x576, then Transmageddon would automatically resize any video down to that size if the video is bigger. If the video is that size or smaller it would not resize the video, but leave it as it is. If it resizes it always make sure to preserve aspect ratio.

                    I demonstrate I quickly put together a xml file for you:

                      Cool, thx, I'll try it when the new version becomes available on my distros repositories.

                      BTW: what about the framerate? that xml file specifies 30fps, or is it a range 1-30?

                        There is lots of HW accelerator work going on in gstreamer

                          It is a range, so framerare in this case will never be allowed above 30fps. You can set it do a really high number if you want to always preserve original framerate. If you want it always to do
                          30 fps (since maybe your hardware requires that), make the number 30,30
