- Jan.28 2015 Tovid 0.35 is released! See this section for details.
- As of this release, mencoder has been removed and transcode is not long a 'hard' dependancy, simplifying things for people who had difficulty installing those programs. As well makexml and makemenu have been removed as their functions are duplicated in the 'tovid disc' command. (see manpage for details, also Making a DVD with text menus).
- 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 !
