Lack of Codec Options in WinFF

Postby Wildfire » Mon Dec 01, 2008 9:28 pm


This is my first post in the forums, just wanted to say as a "novice" (emphasis on the novice here LOL) user of Linux I've really enjoyed Linux Mint so far. Here's my problem: I managed to install ffmpeg, WinFF, and basically any and all other repo's I thought I needed to be an encoding fool (i.e., Medibuntu) but I'm apparently missing something. I want to re encode .h264 files through WinFF, for example, but I don't even see the .h264 codecs listed, let alone Xvid (or many others for example.) Can somebody point me in the right direction as to what I'm missing? Did I miss a repo that has all my codecs I'd want?

Thanks for the help :mrgreen:

The codecs are there, it just seems like WinFF doesn't recognized them; or it could be that you need to edit a config file with how WinFF should pass the parameters to the encoder codec. Anyway, its mostly a thing with WinFF not exactally a linux mint only thing as I'm assuming you got them from the ubuntu repository?
