After extracting the archive, run: python setup.py install If you are using Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) or later, make sure to install with: python setup.py install --install-layout=deb Don't forget to use sudo if necessary. This will install the arista python module to your python site-packages or dist-packages path, install the arista programs into sys.prefix/bin and install all data files into sys.prefix/share/arista.

The graphical client is failry self-explanatory and can be launched with: arista-gtk To use the terminal client please see: arista-transcode --help An example of using the terminal client: arista-transcode --device=ipod --preset=low test.mp4 test-ipod.m4v Other usefule terminal options: arista-transcode --info arista-transcode --info ipod Generating a Test File ---------------------- Sometimes it may be useful to generate a test file: gst-launch-0.10 videotestsrc num-buffers=500 ! x264enc ! mp4mux ! filesink location=test.mp4 Creating New Device Presets --------------------------- New device presets can be created by specifying information about yourself and the device you wish to support along with presets that describe how to create a proper gstreamer pipeline to encode for the device in an xml file. Please see the xml files in the presets directory that ship with Arista for examples. Contributing ------------ All development is managed through Launchpad.net, which provides source revision control, bug tracking, feature planning, string translation, and a forum-like question/answer area. Please report all bugs to the bug tracker there. Add new feature requests as blueprints. The main development site is: http://www.launchpad.net/arista You may create a local branch of the latest code via: bzr branch lp:arista To update your local branch to the latest code you can use `bzr merge`. If you choose to publish your branch you may request a merge to trunk, otherwise you may just send patches that apply cleanly to the latest trunk.
