Projects / JTVD


JTVD is a graphical frontend for popular command line programs such as MEncoder, transcode, MJPEG Tools, toolame, DVDAuthor, and growisofs. It makes it easy to grab videos from Video4Linux devices such as TV cards, encode the data to DVD-compatible MPEG2 files, and author and burn a video DVD with a simple title menu.
