    I think the image speaks for itself

    Basically, I can't install the binaries and this is the error I am getting:



    For some reason it's wanting to download and run rosetta to get something called gnutar to run. I have yet to install rosetta and do this yet. I feel like I shouldn't have to do this and that something else is going wrong.

    Or am I supposed to be downloading Rosetta for this work?

    Rosetta used to be part of a default OS X install on Intel Macs. Until Mac OS 10.6 that is, then it became optional. (It is installed, but possibly not activated.) Mac OS X 10.5.x or earlier wouldn't show this error.
    You'll need Rosetta to run pieces of program code that were written for PowerPC though, which ffmpegX apparently relies on.

    It appears there is a PPC (not UB) gnutar inside the application package.

  4. This directory doesn't exist for me:
    andy$ ls /Applications/ffmpegX.app
    ls: /Applications/ffmpegX.app: No such file or directory

    Need a little help here.

    (I'm a new Mac user, please bear with me)

    Follow the directions on http://www.ffmpegx.com/download.html
    Remember to copy ffmpegX from the disk image to your /Applications folder.
