Nautilus Script for Audio, Video, Image, Text Convert

This is one of the coolest thing I seen in Linux. Now converting image formats from and to for the various image/video formats is lot easier. A script is available for the same. Download it.

You will need to place it in “/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts” in your home directory. To use the script right-click any image/video file, navigate to ‘Scripts’ » ‘avconvert’.
However you will need to install ‘imagemagick’ for image conversion and resizing thing, and ‘ffmpeg’ for video conversion to get the script working.

$ sudo apt-get install imagemagick$ sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

Here are some features.

  • Converts between various audio/video formats
  • Converts between various image formats
  • Creates an image of your text file
  • Various conversions between TXT, RTF, HTML, MSOffice and OpenOffice
  • Produce a WAV file from your text.

    I’m the author — thanks for posting this reference! The script and some documentation are posted at and has been picked up at a number of other sites as well. Look for “avconvert”.

    Suggestions are welcome as it is a work in progress
