    Are you just asking about encryption? If so there are quite a few options:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FolderEncryption

    I prefer Terminal but the GUI options are solid
    Bodhi 1.3 & Bodhi 1.4 using E17
    Dell Studio 17, Intel Graphics card, 4 gigs of RAM, E17

    I would prefer to not have to deal with the terminal so I would prefer a pre-made application that is made as a video safe/vault. Thanks

    There is a beta of Picasa for linux. It allows you to password protect files.

    I just tried Picasa and it only puts a password on folders inside of the Picasa application, I was still able to navigate to where the file was and still open it without being prompted for a password. So it doesn't really password protect the file at all. Thanks for trying though.

    Misunderstanding on my part.. though it was more of a view control to keep from opening them within picasa or having them come up radomly etc.

    Have you thought about ziping/rar'ing the files with a password? Then you can use a viewer that lets you look a the pics within the zip but requires a password.
