OK, I was reading the wiki, FFmpeg and it says that FFmpeg is already installed on dreamhost. Is that true?
if so, I would like to know why this doesn't work... any one know?
the output says FAILED
Does the ffmpeg binary actually exist in "/home/ryannaddy/bin/ffmpeg"?
Perhaps you should run a which ffmpeg (from the shell) to discover the exact location of ffmpeg on your dreamhost server, and use that instead
Chips N Cheese - Custom PHP installs and the like!
it is "/usr/bin/ffmpeg"
so I switched it, and it still doesn't work.
Any ideas why now?
Browsing to http://tzfiles.com/users/ryan/ shows that /home/yourusername/tzfiles.com/users/ryan/file.mpg does not exist, so it should fail (even if your path to that file was correctly stated).
OK, the file file.mpg is now there.
The file I was using had spaces in the file name.
If I remove the spaces it works.
What do I need to do to allow for the spaces? doesn't work, I have tried it.
Linux commandline tools do not like spaces...you should rename the file to eliminate spaces before processing it with ffmpeg.
That is what I thought I had to do, thanks!
I was thinking:- rename the file to temp name- process- rename new file to old name
You could always just add quotes... Then you don't have to muck with filenames.
