View Full Version : [ubuntu] mpeg-4 and kino

November 8th, 2008, 06:36 PM
I have just bought a sanyo video camera .[ vpc-ca65 ] It uses mpeg-4 and a USB connector .
I cannot get kino to import any of the video I have taken .
Are there any other video editing programs that would work ?
Or can anybody tell me how to get kino to work ?
I can get the video clips to play on VLC but I really need a video editing program that supports mpeg-4 or a program that converts mpeg-4 to DV .
I have tried ffmpeg but can not get it to work .
This is what I get ;

Usually that means that input file is truncated and/or corrupted.

Everytime I've encountered this error my input file was corrupted or screwy. Did you try re-importing it?
