View Full Version : FFMPG Error

January 21st, 2009, 09:09 PM
When using Myth Archive if I try to re-encode the video it will give me (Failed while running ffmpeg). If I select do not re-encode it will work. I am running a PVR 150 to record and Ubuntu 8.10 64bit with Myth backend and frontend installed. Any Ideas?

I have no experience with Myth Archive, and without seeing any ffmpeg errors or encoding settings, I would guess ffmpeg is attempting to encode to a restricted format. Try installing the libavcodec-unstripped-51 package which will enable some restricted encoders in ffmpeg. Purely a guess unless you can give more info.

I think that did the trick!
