  2. This doesn't seem caused by 0.0.8b specifically. This error normally means the following:

    - you're trying to encode a VOB file, or a MPG file encoded in mpeg-2 format
    - you've selected the "Decode with Quicktime" option
    - however, your Quicktime is unable to open VOB files or MPG files encoded with mpeg-2. You can test this by opening that file with Quicktime player.

    If the above is true, then you should either:

    - install the Quicktime mpeg-2 player component and keep using the "Decode with Quicktime" option, or:
    - disable the "Decode with Quicktime" option, or:
    - enable the "Decode with mplayer" option.

    Thanks for the reply...

    I have the quicktime component installed... have had for months ever since I started using ffmpergX

    Any other ideas?

  4. Have you kept a previous version of ffmpegX, if yes, does it work while the newer does not, for the same file and same settings?

  5. Silly me I wasn't logged in before...

    Nope, it doesn't work on previous version 7 either...

    Now I don't know if it used to work as I never used quicktime when i was using version 7 as all my files were larger than the 4 gig problem would allow.

    Major, if you can even point me in the right direction, or I can contact you by email to sort it out I would appreciate it...

    I am a registered user BTW.
