    After the installation complete, type exit and try to install gnomeicu and gnome-ppp again
    That should fix the problem

    Re: HowTo: Encode Video for iPod Video

    When I try to encode a video I get this:
    Code:
    What would you like to name the output file (sans extension)?

    Cradle Of Filth - From The Cradle To Enslave will be located in /home/juantxorena/Incoming/videos. Is this acceptable? [y/n]

    Usually that means that input file is truncated and/or corrupted.
    I can watch videos with Xine properlly. Help?

    Try naming it without spaces.

    I believe that this is a limitation with bash...as I said, I whipped this script up quickly...it's rough around the edges, but it works...

    When I get some time to do it, I'll improve it a lot...but for now you have to work with bash

    Sorry.

    Sorry.
    He could also try enclosing the filename in quotes. I think bash is interpreting the spaces to be seperate files.
    This space intentionally left blank.

    I got this when trying to convert a .avi video without spaces in the name (both output and input):

    Try calling it using this command, instead:

    Code:
    ipodvidenc /home/riiidaa/downloaded-files/24se1\ ep1.avi
    You have to escape the space with a \

    juantxorena: You haven't compiled ffmpeg with AAC support. You need to make sure that ffmpeg is compiled with the --enable-faac flag.

    Thanks but the 'libatk-bridge' issue is nothing to do with spaces in file names, I've tried using many diff source videos, and after reading the other posts I can see spaces in file names do cause problems, so made sure to try using files that don't have any.

    Still looking for a resolution to my libatk-bridge nightmare - it's getting me down lol

    Great work on the ipod vid project btw

    HEY, I solved this by installing the at-spi package.


    BUT now it produces no error warnings and still no output file, any ideas?

    Re: HowTo: Encode Video for iPod Video

    I noticed that you're using Kubuntu, so see if you can encode the video manually with this command:

    ffmpeg -i infile.avi -f mp4 -vcodec mpeg4 -maxrate 1000 -b 700 -qmin 3 -qmax 5 -bufsize 4096 -g 300 -acodec aac -ab 192 -s 320x240 -aspect 4:3 outfile.mov

    If not, post the error messages. The GUI program was written for Gnome
