HowTo / Notes

Integrate into KDE context menu

To have a context menu in KDE (e.g. Dolphin):

  • add the following file:

    (in KDE 5 moved to ~./local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus)
[Desktop Entry]

[Desktop Action Virtualdub]
Name=Compress using Virtualdub
Exec=~/bin/ ~/path/default-compression.vcf "%f"
  • create a "default-compression.vcf" somewhere by Save processing settings... from Virtualdub. (includes current filters and codec settings)
  • add the following file, make it executable

export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine

VCF=$(winepath -w "$1")
JOBS=$(winepath -w ~/path/
VIDEO=$(winepath -w "$2")

#echo $WINE $VDUB /master $JOBS /s $VCF $VIDEO
$WINE $VDUB /master $JOBS /s $VCF $VIDEO

If you don't need compression presets, you may remove all VCF stuff. If you want to use the default JOBS file, you may remove all JOBS stuff.
