Unable to export video(MPEG-4) from Mplay

Recommended Posts

Hi
Currently running H Indie 16.5.439 on Ubuntu 18.04.
One recurring issue I am having is the inability to export video (MPEG-4) from Mplay , irregardless of what output settings or video dimensions I choose.

I always seem  to get an error related to ffmpeg like the attached image.
First I see a warning

"Please use q:a or q:v, q:scale is ambiguous"
and then I get a NULL followed by
"Unable to find suitable output format for

Should I report this a bug, or is it more likely something wrong with my ffmpeg installation?

I use Ubuntu 18.04 and ffmpeg works fine out of MPlay so there may be some package you need to get it to work.

I do remember that I manually installed the restricted extras package. Maybe give it a try if you don't already have it.

Thanks Atom. Apparently though that is not my issue.

Extras is already installed  :(.

Also think I found the issue

The output path

 

If you define a subdirectory that doesn't exist I think you will get the same error.
