Nautilus File Converter

Written in Python, using Python-Nautilus for integration into Nautilus file manager, this application seamlessly integrates with Nautilus, allowing you to easily convert images, audio, videos and documents.

By right clicking on a file within Nautilus, a sub-menu within the context menu will allow you to select the output file. It allows the conversion of many files simultaneously, even if they are of different types (e.g. PNG and JPEG).
