I have a friend with a Sandisk Fuzz, but can't find a converter so he can watch videos on it.
Would it be possible to add a default profile for this device and other sandisk devices that are said to be linux compatible by the company? I'm asking all the video converter devels, in hope that someone will consider it.

We would greatly appreciate it.

Hi great app :)

If i do "convert to " (Audio) or "Extract from" as in audio from movie I get the following error:
"can't find audiodump.wav"

I have all the required apps installed. I'm sure this used to work when I used Mepis 6.0.
I use SabayonLinux now.

Please Help

Many Thanks

Dave

I suspect something is happening with mplayer. Can you please send me the error log?

Many thanks for reply.
You are right. Just re-compiled mplayer and it works.

Forgot to mention I was using 64-bit SabayonLinux. I expect this is the problem.

You need a library called "dts". Install a library called libdts* from your package manager.

Try:
((pass++))
instead of:
pass=$(($pass+1))

Does not matter, but second is a bit faster :D

I installed it and when I tried converting something cpu went to 100% and the encoding status window never opened (also there was no disk activity). I tried converting wmv, mpg and flv all the same problem.

I only see the convert video menu not the extract audio (assuming it is part of this). If I had it would it extract audio from .flv?

thanks,

try running the converter in a terminal, eg:
kvidenc /home/user/video.avi mpg
(make sure the path to the file is absolute, mpg can be substituted for any of the supported output formats(ogg,3gp,etc)) and paste the debugging output here.

Sorry, the convert audio menu is from another app (audiokonverter).

when I run in terminal nothing is displayed, cpu just goes up to 100%.

have you considered adding option to extract audio from video?

how long does it run for before closing (and is the cpu at 100% for all that time)? Also, check for a folder named /tmp/kvidenc.*/ while it is running and see what files are created in it (if it does not run for long enough for you to do this, you may need to temporarily comment out the two lines `rm -rf "$tmpdir"` from the script so that it doesn't remove the temp directory on exit).

I may add a feature for extracting audio in a future release, thankyou for your feedback.

the cpu is 100% all the time, disk activity is 0, after a few minutes I just kill it

the tmp dir does not change
ls -l /tmp/kvidenc.*
/tmp/kvidenc.25089:
total 0

/tmp/kvidenc.25164:
