[mythtv-users] MPEG2 cutting script complete

I tried this out and I couldn't get it to work.

This is what I get

"Encode lasted: 1s"
"Thanks for using nuvexport!"

then it just exits.

any ideas as to what it may be? I just used apt-get to install everything
other than the avidemux2 which apt-get didn't have rpm's for. I just
downloaded an rpm for avidemux2 and installed that.
