Transcoding On Ras Pi3

Never thought I would ever say this about a $35USD computer but… here it goes

With the libav guys, maintainers of the avconv program adding hardware encoding support for Pi 2-3 hardware, I have to say its quite a capable transcoding device. Which bring me to the topic…

Wimpy, with a decent GUI and a wizard like style helper, avconv would make an AWESOME addition to a Welcome software installer. I can see lots of people wanting to use their Pi Cameras to record time lapses and now wanting to stitch it into a video. These people are going to struggle with terminal tools to create this…

Anyone else like myself want to see an avconv or maybe ffmpeg tool for using the power of the GPU’s encoders?
