Line 385 says:
my $suffix = ($out =~ /mpe?g/i) ? '.mpg' : '.nuv';
This means if the file contains mpeg or mpg it will add .mpg and in
all other situations it will use .nuv.
That regex is even a little wonky since it will change files named
somethimpegelse.nuv to somethimpegelse.mpg
It should really be:
my $suffix = ($out =~ /mpe?g$/i) ? '.mpg' : '.nuv';
Not the most efficient way, but certainly the easiest to keep avi
extensions would be to add this line after 385:
$suffix = ".avi" if ( $out =~ /\.avi$/i );
