Sorry, I dropped the "O " out of carelessness.

:)  Did you try playing it all the way through yet?

It failed earlier because you spelled the input files wrong.  It was
unrelated to the underscore in the output file.

No, we got the command just right finally. :)

Ah, you're right! I did miss that the last couple times.  I'm very
sorry.  I'm glad you figured that out.

It doesn't matter because it's in the output (the program creates the
output file, and it doesn't need to have any relation to the input
name).  You could name it
SuesExcellentAdventure.avi if you wanted (wouldn't make much sense, but
you could).

It does if I set my email to HTML.  However, it is better netiquette to
send in plain text, and that is how I prefer to read it.  Also, the font
you use is very large.
