[ubuntu] ffmpeg compatible files issue - winff trouble, too

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi. I'm running Lucid LTS and have stumbled on a problem - ffmpeg and winff are suddenly behaving very strangely. I wanted to convert one of my old wma files to mpg but audacity tells me that ffmpeg libraries don't recognize it. It plays fine on movie player though. Winff won't work at all. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling ffmpeg and winff but that didn't have any effect. Is there some way I that might fix this? Thanks for any help, mystmaiden (Hardware)
