Transmageddon Video Transcoder Adding New Features

The Transmageddon video converter that's built atop GStreamer for Linux/Unix systems to transcode video files is on the heels of a new release that will deliver multiple new features.

Christian Schaller of Red Hat has blogged about his work on adding hardware encoding support to Transmageddon. With the open-source transcoder being built atop GStreamer, it was fairly straight forward to add hardware encoding using the GStreamer 1.x VA-API package. The Video Acceleration API allows for hardware encode/decode on the Linux Linux graphics driver while the other Linux graphics drivers are mostly centered around VDPAU and now OpenMAX too. With the GStreamer 1 VA-API package now in Fedora, it's easy to use the GNOME-focused video application with hardware acceleration when using the program's development code.

Other features for the next Transmageddon release include support for multiple audio streams, DVD ripping support, and language tag setting support. Christian anticipates being able to release the new open-source video transcoder next month after the Munich GStreamer hackfest.

More details on the Transmageddon can be found via Christian's blog and the project site at LinuxRising.org. In related news, also be sure to read about the features coming to GStreamer 1.4 that were covered this morning on Phoronix.
