did you install ffmpeg from the normal synaptic repository's or from the medibuntu repository?
medibuntu's ffmpeg has more codecs, this is the package recommended for winff.

June 9th, 2008, 02:47 PM
now it's input stream #0.1

stream #0.0: video: mpeg4, yuv420p, 320240, 30.00 fps(r)
stream #0.1: audio: ***

the error I get is

[acc Q 0xb7acc9a8]FAAD library; cannot resolve faacdecgeterrormesseage in libfaad.so.o!
error while opening codec for input stream #0.1:confused:

I reinstalled faad and faac and it still didn't work please help me

You are doing nothing wrong. Your error message is related to this bug:
Bug #225060: ffmpeg doesn't work with hardy FAAD library (https://bugs.launchpad.net/medibuntu/+bug/225060)

You can use the old Gutsy Gibbon faad as described in the first comment of the bug report. Another solution is to compile ffmpeg yourself:

Patent and copyright restrictions keep Ubuntu from enabling some formats and codecs by default. They leave it up to the user and is one of the ways to keep Ubuntu free. Providing only free software "out of the box" is an important part of the Ubuntu Philosophy (http://www.ubuntu.com/community/ubuntustory/philosophy), but unfortunately can cause some problems for users.

How did you install ffmpeg? From the ubuntu repository, Medibuntu repository, or did you compile it yourself? Can you show me your ffmpeg command and the complete ffmpeg output? This will give me the details I need to help you debug this. I don't use winff, but if you run it from the terminal it might show the ffmpeg output.

Unknown encoder 'mp3'

The names of encoding options in ffmpeg often annoyingly change between revisions, so your script needed to be updated. I renamed "-acodec mp3" to "-acodec libmp3lame" on line 180, but I didn't test the script.

it running now I hope with 0 errors
thank you
I,ll this enfo to rockbox forums in put you name ALL over it

videos done encoding good video NO sound what so aver

June 10th, 2008, 07:17 AM
I should have tested the script first. I got it working here after I removed "-f mpeg2video" from line 180. It was preventing the audio from being added to the file. It worked for me with this command:

./mkvid-ffmpeg.sh pasteeater.avi pasteeater.mpg
I recommend passing the "-vframes" option to the script to test it. vframes tells ffmpeg to encode only a certain number of frames. This is useful because you can test the script without needing to encode your whole video. In this example, only the first 30 frames will be encoded:

./mkvid-ffmpeg.sh -o "-vframes 30" pasteeater.avi pasteeater.mpg

It works good video good sound and even better on my mp3 play
now I can put movies on my mp3 with out using my moms computer(M$ vista)

June 10th, 2008, 02:03 PM
is it save to do two at a time in a another console

June 10th, 2008, 06:45 PM
Glad you got it working despite a few bugs, lack of restricted codec support in ffmpeg, and script errors. I recommend encoding just one video at a time because it should use most of your CPU power to encode just one.

This thread has already been marked as solved, so people might not see your question.

Are you using WinFF or plain ffmpeg? Paste the output from this command:

ffmpeg -version

If you are using WinFF, which preset are you using? Are you using the latest WinFF and the latest Ubuntu?

Unknown codec ['xvid' or 'libmp3lame'..etc..etc.] error
is coz you need libavcodec-unstripped-52 and libavcodec-extra-52 to make
winff work..these packages are not installed a dependencies..may be for legal reasons..so to get over it..
sudo apt-get install libavcodec-unstripped-52 libavcodec-extra-52
Hope this settles it! happy hacking..
