hia, just found this mailing list and  was wondering if i could ask here
some help to understand why i get this error:

bash-3.1# ffmpeg2theora --v4l /dev/video0 --inputfps 15 -x 160 -y 128 -o
No such file or directory

File `' does not exist or has an unknown data format.

im trying it via theorur but it also appears using plain command line.

my /dev/video0 works with freej and xawtv so is not the camera, that uses
the pwc module.

what i´ve seen bizarre is that the activity led of the camera doesnt light
up when called by ffmpeg2theora.

is there a way to activate the camera or why is it failing to operate with
ffmpeg2theora? i have done tests in slackware and gentoo.

im lost and have tried both ffpeg2theora 0.17 and 0.18

any clue appreciated.
