Burn 360 Multimedia Suite
Burn360 has developed into a bunch of programs relating to capturing video and audio, converting and creating DVD's
It contains the main program, Burn360, Test DVD, and DVD Catalogue. The latter two are fairly simple programs which preview a DVD and allow fairly nice cataloging of Video files/DVD contents. (Click on links on side for more info)
It stems from a desire a few years ago to extract and create VCDs. At the time there just wasnt anything on linux (GUI) that either did what I wanted or installed easily.
So to "scratch my itch" I sat down and learned the Gtk bindings for perl and wrote the program. It also includes a lot of my own thoughts as regards user interface. Not everyone will agree with these ideas but hey theres room for different ideas in Free Software.
All operations should be available within in the GUI, BUT user feedback should be equivalent to that provided by relevant command line programs
- This feedback should not clutter up the interface, so everything takes place within a constrained area
- I believe it uses a good compromise between the "point and drool" approach apparently favoured by windows users with the "tell me what is going on" approach preferred by *nix users
This is a work in progress, as whenever I think of something that would be good to have/change I amend the programs
