Project Description

Description

Yet Anoter Set of MEncoder Scripts is, for lack of a better term, a textual front end for MEncoder, with regard to some of the more common audio / video tasks that a desktop Linux user may come across on a daily basis.

Primarily, YAMS is intended to rip dvd video from disc to file (*.avi via lavc fourcc codec - 'divx' / 'xvid' style); transcode video from other less popular streams such as Quicktime, mp4, or other over to (the aforementioned) lavc; and lastly to merge video files into a single re-encoded / transcoded file.

YAMS is far from 'sexy', and simply aims to be a quick - and - dirty helper script for your daily enjoyment.
