  1. Hi there !

    I'm trying to install ffmpegX on my iMac running Os X.6 as stated in the topic's name.

    Here's the message I get :

    Code:
    ##sh: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching '"
    sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of line

    This error is usually a symptom of an apostrophe character where it isn't expected. The interpreter tries to interpret it as the start of something in quotes.
    This could be such a character in a filename (John's Letter), folder name (Kate's notes) or volume name (Pete's Disk). But here, I suspect you have an apostrophe character in your password, as has been an issue before on this forum (1) (2) (3) (4).

    Try after changing your user account password (temporarily) to a password with just alphanumeric characters.

    When creating a Universal Binary of ffmpegX, the developer erroneously let a PPC version of gnutar slip into the application package. This only affects new installs on 10.6, as gnutar is only called upon at installation time.
    One possible workaround for this is to replace this gnutar inside the application package with a copy of the Intel version of gnutar that came with the OS.

    /Applications/ffmpegX.app/Contents/Resources/gnutar
    /usr/bin/gnutar
