I am looking for a software for Linux which could do the following:
- Convert video from one file type to another
- Split/join video files
- Compress video files to reduce the size
- Has a GUI
- Low learning curve
In Linux, especially Debian type (Ubuntu, Mint, etc ) you might look at WinFF for converting files "except .mkv". For .mkv , Transmageddon works well and is available from the Repository. Transmageddon doesn't do batch files. Just single files. WinFF does batch files, but not for .mkv. AVIDemux is an alternative, but a bit more complicated. In general usage, WinFF and Transmageddon seem to do what I need.
On any OS like Win, Linux or Mac is Handbrake a very good Solution. The Overview is compact. Not thousand of pins to make manually changes - for all kinds of mobile devices and desktop solutions are predefined configurations available. (Build-in Device Presets) Support the most common Multimedia Files include Blu-ray or DVD. Easy to use. Open Source. ￼
