Hi,

I got this doubt from a reader of my post
at
http://goinggnu.wordpress.com/2007/02/13/convert-avi-to-3gp-using-ffmpeg

He has a problem with the h263 codecs.

Which package is to be installed to get these codecs?

I think ubuntu-restricted-extras.

Am I right?

Thanks.

Hi all,

I'm rather new to Linux and using the Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex system. Now
I tried to convert an avi - file to 3gp using ffmpeg and following the
suitable instructions.

I have the following problem(s):

Error01:
