devede

i keep getting ’ a bug of mencoder’ every time i try to convert avi to dvd using devede. how can i sort this problem out?. i am not pc/ubuntu literate. thanks

We’re going t need more information than that I’m afraid,

Linux distribution, version, and architecture ? … such as Ubuntu 11.04 64bit etc.

Devede version ?

Where did you acquire devede, and how did you install it ?

Which version of mencoder ?

What is the format of the video file you are trying to convert ?

Have you changed any of the “quality” settings in devede, such as deinterlace etc. ?

Can you start devede from the command line … attempt to build a DVD … and post what is in the terminal when devede crashes.

i downloaded it through ubuntu software center . all it says is ’ a bug of mencoder’ convert from avi to mpeg. cannot give you more info as it is all i can see. i am pc/linux illiterate. but thankyou for your help so far. bundaroo

OK, so far we know you’re using Ubuntu then :slight_smile:

Can you open Devede, and go to Help > About … that will give you the Devede version.

Close Devede.

Then hit Ctrl+Alt+T (at the same time) to open a terminal … when the terminal opens, enter:

cat /etc/*-release

and hit enter … then post back what is returned in the terminal … this will tell us the Ubuntu version.

Back in the terminal, enter:

uname -a

hit enter, and post back the output … this will tell us if you are running 32bit or 64 bit Ubuntu

Then back in the terminal, enter:

devede

and hit enter … this will start Devede, leave the terminal open, and try to encode a DVD … when Devede crashes, post back here what is in the terminal, it may help track down the problem.

g’day, it is devede 3.16.9 and ubuntu 11.4 . also using classic as can’t use unity. it is 32bit also

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode_video

  • MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
    Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a ‘gdb’ backtrace and
    disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
  • MPlayer crashed. This shouldn’t happen.
    It can be a bug in the MPlayer code or in your drivers or in your
    gcc version. If you think it’s MPlayer’s fault, please read
    DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can’t and
    won’t help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.
    [ This binary of MPlayer in Debian is currently compiled with
    ‘–enable-debug’; the debugging symbols are in the package
    ‘mplayer-dbg’.]
