Trying to use for first time- logging out automatically

Randy Carrier

Hello,
I'm trying to use this for the first time, but it appears that the prog automatically closes out. I pasted the console text below- any help is appreciated!

No.

You are asking the shell for a logout, and that’s what it does.

Actually, yes.

All I'm doing is double-clicking on the exec file and this is what happens. Thanks, I'll see if I can figure it out.

Ah, okay. Well, that is the expected behavior. ffmpeg(.exe) is a
terminal program. It doesn't open a GUI or such. If you launch it
without command line arguments, it will only display a short help, as
quoted in your first email.

You need to call ffmpeg from a command shell (such as cmd.exe under
Windows), and pass command line arguments, telling it what to do.

Please read the introductory documentation here:
http://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.html

If you would rather have a GUI, i.e. something to click and navigate,
there's no particular frontend I can recommend, I don't use any. Some
people tend to use HandBrake, which may use ffmpeg under the hood for
some stuff (I'm not even sure).

Cheers,
Moritz
