Hello all,
       I captured a bunch of video files in kino and placed them in 
cinelerra. The first couple I saved as AVI. I had thought I would 
recapture them later as mpeg and delete the avi files but this is a good 
time to learn to use ffmpeg to convert avi to mpeg  I copied a couple of 
commands from  web sites but was unable to get ffmeg up and running.  I 
also tried Averdimux but it seems not to like avi files.  A little help 
with a good tutorial might be a big help.
