DreamEncoder is a TwinVQ encoder working in XWindow environment based.
DreamEncoder has been created to fill the hole - there wasn't any batch encoder (like TwinVQ Encoder by Andre Kampert for Win32).
To install DreamEncoder do the following steps:
Untar the package by typing:
# tar -zxf dreamenc-v?.?.?.tar.gz
then go to the 'dreamenc' directory:
# cd dreamenc
In a while computer will compile the source code, when finishes type:
# make install and the DreamEncoder is installed on your system. To use it type in xterm or run anyway 'dreamenc'. The interface is (I think) intuitive so you can't complain that's non-intuitive.
· DreamEncoder require a XWindow environment with GTK+ (Gnome ToolKit). It's been writen to compile on every machine with those libraries. Of course it require a 'gcc', linker and 'make'.
· Note that encoding TwinVQ files is very time-consuming, so you have to use to encode a fast machines (class Pentium III or Athlon is recomended - libraries are optimized to work on such processors, so encoding will be much faster).
What's New in This Release:
· compilation bug (redefinition) fixed
