    Windows to Linux - Looking for apps.


    Hey , Ive decided to make a full switch from windows to linux. Since I dont do anything except for surf and burn cd's/dvds, i think this would be a good choice for me.

    Anyhow, I was wondering if i could get some ideas on replacement s/w

    Here is what i use and would like to replace w/ a linux equivalent!

    Windows:

    media player (dvd's etc) VLC Player -> found a linux version.
    Nero to burn movies from .ISO an DVD files. - Looking for something w/ multiple burner support.

    Quickpar2 - Linux version?
    Newsleecher - Anything good with .NZB support

    also a dvd ripper (decrypt) , although I dont do this often, would be nice to know if there is something out there.

    Thanks for any help i might be able to get

    KPlayer and K3B

    K3B is the top Linux program for burning CDs and DVDs, Nero doesn't even come close.

    KPlayer is the best for playing movies and music, it uses MPlayer as the backend to play stuff.

    does K3B support burning multiple copys at once?

    thanks for the info

    PyPar2 can be used as a QuickPar replacement.

    dvd::rip is my DVD ripper of choice. See here for a list of other options.

    For NZB support give Pan a try.
