Well it does not seem to work for me. When trying to create a DVD I
first of all get the error described below and second the created m2v
and mpa files remain size 0. The program then exits with the following
INFO: [mplex] mplex version 1.6.2 (2.2.3 $Date: 2004/01/13 20:45:26 $)
**ERROR: [mplex] Unable to read from ./Malcolm in the middle.m2v.
Encode finished: Mon Sep 27 19:26:01 2004
Encode lasted: 6m 6s
When creating a wmv file I get the following error:
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at
/usr/local/share/nuvexport/export/ffmpeg.pm line 173, <$read> line 20.
