thin liquid film

thin liquid film (TLF) is an application that allows Linux users to quickly and easily convert video files into a format suitable for playing on the video capable iPods. It uses the ffmpeg engine and allows batch processing of any number of files, displays detailed information about source video files, saves default settings for future sessions, has configurable output quality settings, and displays a progress bar. Encoded files can be uploaded directly to your iPod.

    Release Notes: A bug relating to the progress bar that was caused by Ubuntu's insistence on using the dash shell by default rather than the bash shell was fixed by changing the install script to detect this and give guidance on how to fix it. Otherwise, the only other changes are some minor tweaks to the install script.

      Release Notes: A bug in the h264 ffmpeg arguments was fixed along with a bug with the progress dialog not showing up. An .m4v file filter was added in the open file dialog for the file transfer list.
