Looking for Audio/Video Tools

There are both RPM and .deb packages.
This is a command line tool, which (for me, I do CLI a lot), is great.

For GUI folks, there is a tool called slcreator, a front end to
dvd-slideshow, also available on sourceforge. See:
I've used the CLI tools to make several slideshow movies, it works quite
