I am trying to convert from VOB to DV for a project a work and when I try to encode I get thi smessage "bin/sh line1: date: command not found" and have no idea what this means. The file is not converted to DV and I am starting to tear my hair out as I need to get this done quickly. Can anyone help with this message and how to fix it?

If your system and disk are okay, and you're running ffmpegX from the Applications folder on your startup disk, then I wouldn't know how to fix this.
Alternatively, you could convert VOB to DV with MPEG Streamclip (free) and the QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component ($20).
Thanks for the reply. Tried the date command and reply was command not found. Not sure what I will do but may post a message on the apple support forum and see what they say. Never seen that error before.
