Avidemux on ubuntu feisty

Video editing on ubuntu will be not too hard, thanks for Nathan's comment in last post that remind me about avidemux.
On feisty you can find avidemux from multiverse repos.

with avidemux, all you need to do is just open video file, select 'auto' menu and choose which format you want, click save that's it. I choose VCD then it's auto apply two filters for me [scaling,add black border]. Ofcourse you can add more filter if you want.


Update:
Note: encoding ~50 mins 688x384 avi file to mpg with athlon xp 1700+, avidemux take 44 mins but mencoder take only 17 mins!!!.
