Here is the command I've been using. I picked this up on a thread for converting videos for Sansa View.

I then get back the following:

Yes, you're correct - I am using Intrepid. I don't know if I have followed the exact HOWTO you've used, but I did manually add medibuntu to the repository. Is simply adding medibuntu not sufficient enough - I thought that after adding medibuntu, the ffmpeg I'd install after would be the correct one? I only have 1 listing for ffmpeg in the repo.

Thanks for both of your insight!
