To make things much more easier, Yakito comes with predefined presets that let you easily convert a file for a give device such as Xbox, HTC Desire, iPod, etc as well. You can add create a list of multimedia files that need to be converted into its main window and start converting.
*. As mentioned before, it's based on FFMPEG mainly thus you can convert between almost all the popular codecs.
*. You can either choose to extract audio/video files within the container format or convert them or can simply disable them.
*. Change audio or video codecs.
*. Set bitrate depending on your needs.
*. Change FPS, compression levels.
*. Re-Size video resolution. Although you cannot crop videos currently with it which is very handy while preserving that bitrate/file size but lets hope that the cool Yakito developers would add it in the future.
*. Amplify audio (audio gain).
Although for this example I used Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal but you can install Yakito in other GNU/Linux distributions by using the below procedure.
1. First download the ".sh" shell script from here.
2. Then go to that downloaded location/folder in your Terminal and enter the below command (replace the text in "Red" with your downloaded version).
chmod +x yakito-0.1.2-linux.sh3. Then again enter the next command (this time also replace the text in "Red" with your version).
sudo ./yakito-0.1.2-linux.shThat should do it. The developers have even created a video guide on how to install it ... so here it goes. Enjoy!.
