I just tried to use it and it is chugging away. I do see the following
line which continuously repeats itself:

processed:  32272 of 88440 frames (36.49%),  fps Use of uninitialized
value in concatenation (.) or string at
/usr/local/share/nuvexport/export/transcode.pm line 176, <$read> line

I'm assuming that this is nothing major?
