    The [code] tag will make the console outputs much more readable.

    use the command Andrew.46 gave, avoiding any with 'X' (it appears that they no longer list decode or encode)

    So how do I write it: ffmpeg -encoders 2>/dev/null | grep aac or ffmpeg -libfaac 2>/dev/null | grep aac At a lost on what/how to type in terminal.

    This is starting to remind me of an old Danny Kaye movie:

    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    you should give Avidemux a try, if you want a point and click type converter. it's not as fast or versatile as ffmpeg, but it's simple and will get the job done

    WinFF
    Avidemux
    Handbrake
    Video editors (such as Kdenlive and Openshot)

    All those give comparatively easy ways of converting videos. Most even use FFMPEG as the backend but hide it behind a friendly graphical interface.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
