Problem with a winFF
Hello all.
I'm new in Linux world and of course I'm so unfriendly with comand line. So I've Installed winFF in my Ubuntu 9,10.

I've to convert the .avi file to .wma and I'm trying to do this with winFF .

My Problem is that the winFF is converting until 2 hour and 25 minutes and no more, bat the original file's (.avi file) duration is 2 hour and 54 minutes.

Could you help me, please?

I have no idea what the problem with winff might be (I don't even know what winff is anyway). I'd check the file size if you are working in a fat32 file system, since fat will not allow you file sizes over 4gb (-1 byte). Besides that, I suggest using an open source alternative and encoding in an open source media format instead of wma. Mencoder, ffmpeg, avidemux and a plethora of options (both graphical and command-line-based) are available. I'd choose ogg or flac, depending of you want lossy or lossless compression.

I have no idea if the mentioned tools support closed formats like wma, though.
