    Re: xvidenc syntax

    Does seem a little odd. MP3 should be a safe bet then with xvidenc but do you have playback with mp3 files with media players like vlc on your setup? This is often missing by default in Ubuntu.
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Yes I regularly play mp3 files.

    With vlc. And with Banshee and Mplayer.

    Re: xvidenc syntax

    Hmmm.... in that case I am not entirely sure. My last thought is that pehaps you could try the following:

    Code:
    xvidenc -r
    This has the following actions:

    Code:
    -r     Reset configuration file. As of version 7.9.5, xvidenc  uses
                  a  configuration  file  which contains the paths to the pro-
                  grams needed for its correct operation.  This  option  tells
                  the  script to remove and recreate the config file using the
                  default values. It can be used to restore the original  val-
                  ues  of the config file in case the user has modified it and
                  wants to get rid of those modifications.  It  is  also  used
                  for resetting the config file in case the user has installed
                  a required program after xvidenc has  generated  its  config
                  file.  If this is the case, the config file will not contain
                  the path to the newly installed program so one has to  reset
                  the  file  in  order  to find it. This is because the config
                  file is generated/updated only once: if it's  not  available
                  on the user's system and during config version updates.  The
                  configuration  file  is  located   in   /home/username/.xvi-
                  denc/config
    and if that does not work I am afraid that I am out of ideas .
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Re: xvidenc syntax

    I knew about the command (thanks to you it has to be said) but since I haven't added or changed anything I didn't think there would be any need to use it.

    However I'll give it a try and see how we go.

    It's too bad that there's no way of judging/assessing the success of a session without having to wait for it to end and see (hear!) what you've got.

    That said, can I assume that the quality levels will not change anything other than the quality. That is, if I were to run 1 pass very low quality and got sound, would you expect that I would also get sound at "ehq". Or if not then not at the higher level either. If so then I can get a handle on the outcome a bit quicker.

    Thanks again.
