can't convert video files

Asked by KennyA on 2013-07-09

I've ran the wartool on two different systems (Arch and Fedora), and niether one can convert the videos. Here's an example:

File `/home/kenny/Games/warcraft2//videos/human-2.smk' does not exist or has an unknown format.
Can't convert video videos/human-2 to ogv format. Is ffmpeg2theora installed in PATH?

I do have ffmpeg2theora installed:

[kenny@localhost wargus]$ which ffmpeg2theora
/usr/bin/ffmpeg2theora

Is there a way to do this manually?

Problem is not with missing ffmpeg2theora but with input file. Is that file really exist?

KennyA (digimars) said : #2

that's the directory I was using to try and extract to.

Also, on my Arch system, I was attempting to extract to the default dirctory of /usr/share/games/stratagus/wargus and was getting the same message.

also, I am attempting this from a CD

Is file /home/kenny/Games/warcraft2//videos/human-2.smk exists (when conversion failed)?

KennyA (digimars) said : #5

the /home/kenny/Games/warcraft2/videos directory exists, it creates the logo.ogv file, but fails on the rest

This means that (other) video files missing in your Warcraft II CD or you have not fully supported Warcraft II version. You can ignore above errors (of video files) and you can play Wargus (but without videos).

Can you help with this problem?
