Software :: Codec Errors Using Ffmeg And Winff Frontend In Ubuntu 10.04 - Unknown Encoder 'libxvid'

Sep 9, 2010

I am testing several programs for video editing and video format change.I have been trying avidemux, and now I am trying to use ffmpeg, and a graphical frontend for it, Winff.As an example I am trying to convert an MP4 file to AVI. I obtain an error that says: "Unknown encoder 'libxvid'". How could I possibly now what I have to install to be able to convert the files without errors?

PD: This is the output from ffmpeg when called from Winff:

I want to be able to rip videos off ..... and put them on my ipod. I added installed "Download helper" which enables me to rip the videos off ..... in a flv format. When I try and convert the files to .mp4a (using the WinFF GUI) my terminal pops up and says "unknown encoder 'libx264'"

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound In Openshot / WinFF - Unsupported Codec

May 21, 2010

I have a video - taken on my mobile phone. In totem, I get sound and video: lovely. However, in Openshot I don't get sounds, and in WinFF it tells me "Unsupported codec (id=7372" for the audio stream. Why, when both are using FFMpeg do the installed codecs work differently in different programs?

Ubuntu Servers :: Bind9 Errors: Unknown Option 'zone'

Aug 11, 2010

I am trying to get bind 9 up and running on a new installation of server 10.04 and keep getting errors when starting the daemon -

* /etc/bind/named.conf.local:19: unknown option 'zone'
* /etc/bind/named.conf.local:20: unknown option 'zone'
* /etc/bind/named.conf.default-zones:3: unknown option 'zone'
* /etc/bind/named.conf.default-zones:11: unknown option 'zone'
* /etc/bind/named.conf.default-zones:16: unknown option 'zone'
* /etc/bind/named.conf.default-zones:21: unknown option 'zone'
* /etc/bind/named.conf.default-zones:26: unknown option 'zone'

The onlything I could find after scrubbing the internet is once ina while there's a missing bracket. But I have checked and triple checked my config files and the syntax and can't find anything wrong. I have another installation of bind9 running on Fedora and the same exact syntax works just fine.

Ubuntu :: Bunch Of C Errors On Program Compilation - Unsupported And Virtually Unknown

Feb 24, 2011

I'm attempting to install a small application called Asymptopia Flashcard System on Xubuntu x64. It's unsupported and virtually unknown, so I don't know many details about it aside from what I can gather from the source files. The first step in the installation directions is to type "make lib_install" as root at the command line. I get this output:

Making ... compiling Path.C ... Path.C: In member function �void Path::listdir(char*, std::deque<char*, std::allocator<char*> >*): followed by a bunch of errors like this: Path.C:38: error: �strcmp� was not declared in this scope

all for the file Path.C, all of them complaining about various header files not being declared. I have the latest version of gcc installed, so I'm very confused about what the problem is. This application is at least a few years old...maybe there's something out-of-date about the way it includes the header files?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Find Libx264 Or Libxvid

Jan 29, 2011

I'm using mencoder to encode a DVD on my computer (reading it is not an issue), and I'm having trouble getting the codec to read a certain library.My command includes these options:


-ovc lavc
-lavcopts vcodec=libx264 (I also tried with libxvid)

It spat out this error at the end:


Cannot find codec 'libxvid' in libavcodec...
Couldn't open video filter 'lavc'.
Failed to open the encoder.

Unless I can get this working I'll fall back on mpeg4 but I would like these codecs. I've had good experiences with them. I've checked and the libx264-98 package is installed, along with libxvidcore4 and avifile-xvid-plugin Is this a permission problem? Or do I have to set a conf file? DO NOT suggest using a different -ovc or vcodec. If you have one that works for you, keep that for yourself. I am going to use lavc.

Ubuntu Security :: Postfix - Not Critical - SMTP Server: Errors From Unknown [ip Address] In Local Recipient Table

Jan 2, 2010

This is a transcript I get emailed at least once every day, usually about 3 to 10 a day recently.

Transcript of session follows.
SMTP server: errors from unknown[ip address]
<boring stuff snipped>
In: RCPT TO: <server@my domain>
Out: 550 5.1.1 <server@my domain>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table

Session aborted, reason: lost connection Now I cannot seem to find anything via Google, as when I put "server@" anywhere in the string, I just get web hosting or other kroomst. The emails usually come from legit places, usually hotels. Does this mean they are sending bad emails, i.e. they have a Trojan/worm, or is this a live hack attempt?. I believe the later, as I might get upto 3 domains from the one ip address, which is always, NOT associated with the listed domain. Not causing me any issues, except I have been getting a lot recently.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mass Video Encoder With A GUI?

Jun 28, 2010

I've got a bunch of wmv files that I'd like to re-encode to avi - about 50 of them. Is there a straightforward GUI application that does the same thing as Sound Converter does with audio files? As in, add a folder full of files, select the output format and output filename/folder, click "convert", and come back a few hours later.

Yes I know I can convert video files with mencoder and ffmpeg, but doing it file by file at the command line means I can't leave it running overnight or something.

I found something called Arista but the only output options are designed for specific hardware, ie. iPods and PSPs. I just want to convert the wmv's to avi's, not mess around with resolution etc. Also, with Arista you still need to add the files one at a time.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: K3b: How To Add Flac Encoder

Dec 27, 2009

As K3b is the standard ripper I suppose it must be possible rip an audio cd to flac? In the plugin menu I see that the flac decoder is installed but not the encoder. Did someone already succeeded in installing the flac encoder plugin?

FYI: With virtual folders I am able to copy from the flac directory. It works to encode with flac like this but I experience the last seconds of the song are gone...
