Any thoughts? By the way its an mpg file. Ive done it the manual way with the same file using mplayer and it works. Any suggestions?
Okay, scratch that reply. This is what Ive done to fix the problem I was having. These are things I wasnt doing correctly: make sure you save the file your trying to convert in the mplayer folder and rename it with one word, then take that file and open it in Creator, now make sure you save the new encoded file in the mplayer folder with any one word name you choose as long as you add ".avi" to the new file. That seemed to have fixed my problem. I don't know if these couple things have been mentioned already, but just in case, there you go, so far so good
