Install Arista Transcoder in Ubuntu, Simple, Yet A Powerful Multimedia Converter for Gnome!

Now I've already posted few multimedia converters for Linux in previous posts. But I gotta say, Arista Transcoder beats both of those mentioned converters with its professional looking GUI. The GUI looks very similar to the Totem media player and to the right section, are the settings that contain presets and description of the files in the Queue, etc which is very easy getting used to as well.

Arista is built upon the Gstreamer multimedia framework, thus any multimedia file that is supported by Gstreamer is supported by Arista as well.

Main features...

*. Supports a large amount of codes and container formats such as - mp4, Matroska, AVI, OGG, FLV, H.264, V8, MPEG4/Divx, Theora, AAC, Vorbis, MP3, etc...

*. Built in presets - android, iPad, iPhone, Cowon....

*. Embeds to Nautilus file manager thus giving the ability to convert files using as simple as doing a right-click.

*. Automatic notifications.

*. Show live previews.

To install it in Ubuntu, simply open your Terminal and enter the below command.
sudo apt-get install arista
