Tkmpeg is a binary extension that is provided as part of DS9
. It is an MPEG 1 encoder based on ezMPEG [1
], a project that is still in alpha. Tkmpeg is used by DS9
to save a series of frames as an MPEG 1 video. License: GPL v2.
Other tools that can be used from Tcl/Tk to generate MPEG video:
- TclMagick , a Tcl wrapper for ImageMagick  or GraphicsMagick ; the codec mpeg2vidcodec_v12.tar.gz  is required. See the mpeg2encode page for an example script.
- mpeg2encode is not a Tcl tool but can be called with exec.
