thin liquid film project is an application which allows linux users to quickly and easily convert video files into a format suitable for playing on the video capable ipods. I wrote this application, after purchasing a video ipod, and being frustrated that the only real option for converting video was either via command-line, or via a servicemenu with no ability to configure the resulting video file.

TLF uses the ffmpeg engine to do the encoding. It is written in pyqt, so it should work with a default kde installation, and is very easy to install.

What's New in This Release:

This is the infamous 1.0 release of thinlqiuidfilm. I've finally identified the cause of the last known bug in tlf - relating to the progress bar. I think this is caused by *ubuntu's insistence on using the dash shell as default, rather than the bash shell. I've put a little routine in the install script to detect this, and guidance on how to fix it. Otherwise, the only other changes are some minor tweaks to the install script.

Next step is to widen the scope of tlf to be a task based gui for converting video to specific device formats or for specific formats. Hopefully, this will happen soon.
