To Linux users, ffmpeg is probably a program you have heard of, but not if you are a Windows user only.  That is all about to change, The Inquirer has spotted Super, a FOSS video converter able to change files from any one codec to another.  Check this out before you go nuts from re-encoding files 8 times before getting it in the format you want.

"THERE IS open source software to perform almost every task. But Windows users always expect a fancy

graphical interface. "SUPER" provides just that, allowing you to effortlessly convert video files

between every format, for free.

I found a nice windows graphical user interface dubbed "Super" which includes compiled windows

executables of ffmpeg, MPLAYER, ffmpeg2theora along with other related open source libraries into a

simple installer for it. The result is "Super", described, pardon the redundancy, as "A simple GUI to

ffmpeg, mencoder, mplayer, x264, mppenc, ffmpeg2theora & the theora/vorbis RealProducer plugIn""
