What's up, man? I'm glad to finally help you, because I think you helped me once. I believe you have to specify a video after aa:help. I tested it with mplayer -vo aa:help fn.wmv |less.

I'm not sure about building it into an mpeg. Sounds very possible, though. Probably something more complex than mplayer -v aa vid.avi >> vid.mpeg

Hope this helps,

I couldn't get -vo aa:help to work either. Also I found that any video I tried to play only showed 1/2 the picture (left to right). Any problems like that?


aalib, mplayer
