Install Gstreamer 1.0 & Transmageddon 1.1 in Ubuntu 14.04

Transmageddon is an open source application that provides users with an easy-to-use and modern video conversion utility based on the highly acclaimed GStreamer multimedia framework. It supports almost any format as its input and can generate a very large host of output files

The idea behind this application is to help users create files they need to be able to play on their mobile devices and for people not hugely experienced with multimedia to generate a multimedia file without having to resort to command line tools with ungainly syntaxes.


What’s New:

  • Fixed bug in missing plugin code
  • Changed timestamp format for better sorting
  • Fixed bug causing MPEG4 Part 2 to be listed as just MPEG Video in UI

GStreamer is a library for constructing graphs of media-handling components. The applications it supports range from simple Ogg/Vorbis playback, audio/video streaming to complex audio (mixing) and video (non-linear editing) processing.

Applications can take advantage of advances in codec and filter technology transparently. Developers can add new codecs and filters by writing a simple plugin with a clean, generic interface
