Description Dimitri Papadopoulos 2000-06-20 11:41:05 EDT

On Solaris using the binary ImageMagick distribution:
	$ convert *.jpg toto.mpg
On RedHat 6.2:
	$ convert *.jpg toto.mpg
	sh: mpeg2encode: command not found
	convert: delegate failed (mpeg2encode %u %o).

On Solaris, mpeg2encode is enclosed in the ImageMagcick
	$ ls /usr/local/imagemagick/bin/
	animate      convert      identify     mogrify      mpeg2decode  xtp
	combine      display      import       montage      mpeg2encode

It would be great to have mpeg2encode included in the
ImageMagick RPM, or at least have a separate mpeg2encode
RPM, or to patch convert to use another program/library
to transform JPEGs to MPEG.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-06-24 09:40:13 EDT
We can't do that - mpeg2encode and mpeg2decode are not free ("Commercial
implementations of MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video, including shareware, are subject to
royalty fees to patent holders. Many of these patents are general enough such
that they are unavoidable regardless of implementation design.").
