mencoder lives

I have installed the LiVES video editing software using these RPM files (and any other dependancies asked for):


When LiVES starts, it displays this message:

"LiVES was unable to find any encoder plugins.
Please check that you have them installed correctly in
You will not be able to 'Save' without them."

When I accept this message, LiVES is ready for use, and displays the following:

mplayer...detected...mencoder...detected...mogrify...detected...convert...detected...composite...det ected...sox...detected

Temp directory is /home/win98D/video/livestmp/
Welcome to LiVES version 0.8.5.

Ready for processing."

When I look in /usr/share/lives/plugins/encoders I find: encodedv, ffmpeg, memcoder, and transcode

If I start LiVES as SU (testing for permissions problems), I get the same error.

I have searched for clues for a fix, but have not found any yet.

Can someone tell me how make the plugins function?

I have found the answer to my problem.

The files in my plugins directory had the right names (don't know how they got there), but were not the correct ones. I found a tarball with plugins, and when these were extracted into the plugins directory, all worked as it should.
