I'm sorry, it's still not working for me.
I am using cygwin in a WinXP environment.
I tested a simple bash script and it works using cygwin through bash.exe.
However, using bash.exe to run the below script has no effect and closes without error.
I can't understand what I may be doing wrong.
Thanks for sticking with me on this...
seraphim172 - yes. The code that generated that error was run from win cmd line. It didn't work most likely because of my attempt to use wildcards to perform conversion on multiple files in a folder. Most likely this is incorrect ffmpeg syntax.
I am also looking into trying to schedule bash scripts and unSpawn is trying to help me figure this out.
If I knew the proper syntax to run ffmpeg on a folder from cmd I would use that. If I could work out a bash/shell script to do the same I would try to use that.
Applications and utilities I have found require manual selection of individual files in a folder to do batch conversion which is not flexible enough.
