After months of testing 1.4-pre-releases and even more time of making 1.3beta-releases, we're proud to announce the release of MJPEG-tools 1.4.0.
The MJPEG-tools are a set of utilities for recording, editing, playing back and encoding (to mpeg) of MJPEG-encoded video.
Recording video is done through capturing from zoran-based video devices, such as the DC10+, the Iomega Buz or the LML33. Playback of videos can be done using the zoran-hardware or using software playback through smjpeg (SDL), all this with lavplay.
xlav is a simple tool for cut-n-paste editing of video, it is based on lavplay's playback program. It produces editlists which can be handled by all other tools.
Using mpeg2enc, mp2enc and mplex, the videos (or editlists) can be encoded to MPEG.
New utilities include yuv2lav, yuvscaler, yuvplay and lavpipe. yuv2lav can be used for encoding YUV-streams to MJPEG-encoded video. yuvscaler can scale YUV-streams. yuvplay can playback YUV-streams. lavpipe can be used for advanced editing purposes, such as creating scene transitions or video layer combining.
