  1. Hey guys, as you may notice I'm new to tgis forum, but I seriously need some help with ffmpegx. I heard many great things about it and i decided to try it out. I got all the necessary files, but whenever I try to use my "MacOSX login password" it tells me it failed to register in its 3 attempts and that the "installation was not successful." Am I doing something wrong? I never had a a login password, and I got so angry I got a nosebleed. So I made myself a master password, and still no luck. When I click 'cancel' it shows the application, and i guess i'm able to use it, but I wan't to do it right with no errors.

    Can someon tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    The installer for ffmpegX needs to do some stuff which uses the sudo command in the background.
    Use of the sudo command requires a non-blank password of the current user with admin privileges.
    (If you have a blank password, then set a password in System Preferences>Users & Groups (or Accounts), at least for the duration of installation.)
