Videoporama - A Fully Featured Video/Image Slide Show Creator for GNU/Linux!

Videoporama is a very impressive video and image slide-show creator that is written in Qt. Although it's basically seems like a front-end since it uses the excellent MPlayer for video play-back, ffmpeg and MjpegTools for dealing with various types of audio and video formats... the rest assured, if you want something that lets you create hassle free video shows or image slides... then Videoporama is an elegant app.

This actually is a cross-platform Qt written application thus you can use it in Microsoft Windows as well.

Main features...

*. Comes preloaded with a lot of transition effects.

*. Add text to your images (overlays, etc).

*. If your does not have an audio file, then you can manually add one too!.

*. Pre-built presets for creating videos for iPhone/iPod or manual output settings.

*. Supports saving videos in mpg, avi, mp4 and webm + if you want you can save the recorded videos in full HD resolutions as well.

These are few of its main features to mention and if you want to install it in Ubuntu 10.10, then open your Terminal and enter the below command.
sudo apt-get install videoporama
If you use Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Nalwhal, then please use the this .deb package instead.

I managed to install Videoporama from source in Fedora 15 but cannot run it.....every time I try to start it from terminal, this is the output I get

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./", line 23, in
from main_winDLG import *
File "/usr/share/videoporama/", line 34, in
from interface import *
File "/usr/share/videoporama/", line 23, in
import Image
ImportError: No module named Image

I probbly am missing some dependancies but have no idea how to go about getting them. I'm thinking may be the Python imaging libray......Unless me problem is something else entirely. Can you help me out please?

Well, I don't use Fedora 15 but you can try (as you suggested) installing the "python-imaging" library by using the below command.

yum install python-imaging.i686

This is an excellent piece of open-source software. I keep coming back to it whenever I need to make a slideshow and the ability to insert video between the slides saves a lot of mucking about in NLE software. Thumbs up all round! I have used it successfully with Ubuntu 10.04, Mint 11 Katya and Ubuntu Studio 11.04.
