News:

  • Now avconv (libav.org) is supported in SVN, and will be part of soon to be released tovid 0.35 ! See Installing tovid under "Subversion" for help on installing from SVN.
  • If you have problems with tovid 0.34, specifically ffmpeg commands that will not run properly, use SVN. The latest updates for the fast changing ffmpeg api go there. See the Subversion section of "Installing tovid".
  • July 23, 2011 tovid 0.34 released ! See this section for details.
  • tovid needs a new owner! Please see this page if you are interested.
Note: this does not mean the project is dead, just that development is curtailed. Bugfixes will still be released, especially to keep up with fast moving backends like ffmpeg. A new python developer would be most welcome !
