    I have just installed the software and all components. I THINK i installed the flv component through terminal. Not a pro at terminal...

    I tried converting a mov file to flv

    it exported but the flv file was only zero KB

    so, i assume it didnt work.

    any help? any way to know if it actually installed properly?

    thanks yall

    Could you post the Process Information ("the log") here?
    You can access that by pressing the blue "i" in the Progress window, after a (successful or failed) conversion.
    That would help diagnose the issue.

    If the audio stream is listed before the video stream, then a "Codec type mismatch for mapping"-error can happen, as ffmpeg expects the streams video first, audio second. The solution is to set the "Invert mapping" checkbox in the Audio tab.

    [s:7d02011bc3]Apparently, the installation of FLVtool2 didn't go well.
    Try installing that again.[/s:7d02011bc3]
    I was wrong, see two posts down.

    It seems the script inside /Applications/ffmpegX.app//Contents/Resources/flvtool2
    points to
    /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin/ruby
    while on my system (10.4.11), and maybe yours as well, it should point to
    /usr/bin/ruby
    because that's where ruby resides on my system.
    You can edit that in any text editor. (I did it with BBEdit.) The "bad interpreter: No such file or directory"-error no longer appears in the log. This fixes the metadata being correctly added to the .flv file.
    With the wrong path in the script, you should get a valid .flv file without the metadata, just like the previous version of ffmpegX.

    It won't fix bad or corrupted .flv files.

    Flash Player plays .swf files, not .flv files, afaik.
    .flv files play in VLC, mplayer or QuickTime Player with Perian.

    To embed .flv files in webpages, playable with the Flash plugin,
    you should install an .swf media player that links to the .flv file.
    I've had good results with JW FLV Media Player.

    Hello,
    how can I access /Applications/ffmpegX.app//Contents/Resources/flvtool2 ?

    In applications I only see ffmpegX.app and this starts the application.

    Normally I am working with windows, but a friend has a new mac book pro.

    Please help me, thank you.

    Control-click the application and choose Show Package Contents from the contextual menu, to "open up" the application. Inside, you'll see a Contents folder, inside that a Resources folder, inside that a file called flvtool2.

    Did you install the FLVtool2 (a separate download) correctly, as described in the 0.0.9y announcement and on the ffmpegX website?

    It should be installed to /usr/bin/ (where many other command line tools reside, including 'ruby'). This is a totally different file from the one inside ffmpegX.

    Either your file isn't there, or does not have the proper attributes to make it a command line executable. You need to do the four Terminal commands exactly right.
