Bug Description

Binary package hint: lives

Dear Friends,

Don't know if it's a bug or not, but I've tried to install everything about ffmpeg and Lives don't save in flv format. It shows the error:
"Unrecognized option 'comment'"

thanks for the report!

Which version do you use? And on which Ubuntu release?

Please type in the following:

ffmpeg 2>&1| grep libavformat | grep -v configuration

Check the major version part. If it is >= 52 then LiVES encoder will use -metadata comment, otherwise it will use -comment.

Please report your findings here.
