How to install Audio/Video/Image/Text/ISO Converter Nautilus Script


1. Download the script
2. Extract it and move it to ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts
3. move it to somewhere in $PATH (eg /usr/local/bin)
4. do #3, then add it as a nautilus-action (set "paramater" to "%M", check "multiple files").

If you don't know how to do that, read on.



In Ubuntu, install Nautilus actions:
sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions
Then go to System > Preferences > Nautilus Actions Configuration, click Add, put in the label field: convert, click on the profile (Main) and then Edit, on the action tab enter the following values (obviously, make sure you have avconvert in /usr/local/bin):

nautilus-actions settings

This is what you will see when you right click a file (i added an icon to it):

right click nautilus

Now you can:
1. right-click on selected icon(s) and choose the script
2. from command line: avconvert filename (quote name(s) with spaces, multiple files OK)
3. right-click on selected icon(s) and choose "convert".


Requirements:


zenity (the dialogs), ffmpeg (audio and video), imagemagick (images).

To install them in Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install zenity ffmpeg imagemagick

Optional:
espeak (text to audio), mplayer (video to frames), faac (m4a), faad (mpeg-2 and mpeg-4), antiword (ms word to text and rtf), unrtf (rtf to text and html), odt2txt (odt to text and xml), txt2tags (text to html), AcetoneISO (for b5i/cdi/mdf/nrg/pdi to ISO. Also nrg2iso, daa2iso, cdd2iso, uif2iso, bchunk)

To install them all in Ubuntu, first add the medibuntu repository and then:
sudo apt-get install espeak mplayer faac faad antiword unrtf odt2txt txt2tags acetoneiso


Then, all you have to do is right click a file (or files) you want to convert and select "Convert", then follow the on-screen directions / options.
