Youtube


hello,

Im trying to convert an mp3 to a video file (mpg/avi/mp4), to upload to Youtube (it wont accept audio files), but it keeps saying failed to process (on every single file type).

Anyone know anything about this?

We don't know much.
We don't know what you're trying to convert the file with.
We don't know what distribution of Linux you're running.
We don't know what you've tried that "failed to process"
??

I tried converting the mp3 with

Code:
ffmpeg -i *.mp3 *.mpg
and other video file types.

Running Slackware.

It fails every time uploading the file to Youtube upload.

So it's not the conversion that's failing, but the upload? Yes? Does the converted file work locally?

That syntax doesn't look right to me. See man ffmpeg I see nothing there about using wildcards for either input or output. What do you get with the -formats option?

(Thanks for the information, too)

Well, mplayer plays the file fine, but audacious and VLC the file audibly clips.

Sorry thats my fault. The wildcards just represent file names (not wildcards).

I get a huge list of file types (mov, avi, mp4, mpeg, etc)

I'll have a look at man ffmpeg, Im just a bit lazy, its a huge man page , and I thought someone may have run into this before.

That's how we learn, by reading the documentation. I don't have any experience with ffmpeg, but even if I did, I'd point you at the documentation rather than try to read it for you and figure what you needed to know.

@lighter973: please modify your thread title into something more specific (HOWTO: edit your first thread post and set up a new title).
