    Default tovid help please

    Hi, I have often run tovid in Fedora, but I decided to try out Opensuse 11.4.
    11.4 is really nice, easy to use, but still feels like real Linux.

    My issue is this:

    I can create DVD movies from xvid and other files without issues as long as I choose no menus.
    If I choose static or animated menus then I get a halt and an error:

    **************

    Creating a menu title image

    [1 of 4] Seeking to 2 seconds in God Is Our Pilot.avi /usr/lib/tovid/todisc: line 5587: strings: command not found


    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    todisc encountered an error:
    Problem creating images from the video.

    Check the contents of /home/Ninja/todisc.log to see what went wrong.
    See the tovid website (Tovid Wiki) for what to do next.
    Sorry for the inconvenience!
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I used to run the same version of tovid on Fedora without this happening.
    I looked at the todisc file and this is line 5587:

    if ! "${FFMPEG_CMD[@]}" 2>&1 |strings >> "$LOG_FILE";then


    The entire section of code is:

    # create the preview images
    if ! $TEXTMENU && ! $SINGLE_SLIDESHOW && $DO_MENU; then
    for ((i=0; i<=NUM_FILES; i++)) ; do
    # don't make titles if all input files are images
    # pass -f image2 to ffmpeg if its an image (not always needed but ...)
    [[ ${file_is_image[i]} = "yes" ]] && fmt="-f image2" || fmt=""
    SV=${SEEK_VAL[i]}; CURFILE="${IN_FILES[i]##*/}"
    spin "[$((i + 1)) of ${#FILES[@]}] Seeking to $SV seconds in $CURFILE"

    FFMPEG_CMD=(ffmpeg $fmt -ss ${SEEK_VAL[i]} -i "${IN_FILES[i]}" -an \
    -vframes 1 -s $THUMB_SIZE $WORK_DIR/pics/$i/%06d.$IMG_FMT)
    CMD=( "${FFMPEG_CMD[@]}" )
    SED_VAR="frame="
    ! [[ "$SC_FRAMESTYLE" = "glass" ]] \
    && echo -e "\nRunning: "${CMD[@]}"\n" | fold -bs >> "$LOG_FILE"
    # some vars for get_framed_pics()
    VOUT="png:z=7"; FRAMES=30
    FRAME_SIZE=$THUMB_SIZE
    D=2

    if [ "$SC_FRAMESTYLE" = "glass" ]; then
    MPLAYER_SEEK_VAL=${SEEK_VAL[i]}
    get_framed_pics "${IN_FILES[i]}" >> "$LOG_FILE" 2>&1
    largest_png=$(du -s $WORK_DIR/000*[0-9].png | sort -r |
    awk 'NR>1{exit};1 {print $2}')
    mv -f $largest_png $WORK_DIR/pics/$i/$(printf "%06d%s" 0 .$IMG_FMT)
    rm -f "$WORK_DIR"/000*[0-9].png
    elif [ "$SC_FRAMESTYLE" = "none" ]; then
    if ! "${FFMPEG_CMD[@]}" 2>&1 |strings >> "$LOG_FILE";then
    runtime_error "Problem creating images from the video."
    fi
    fi

    wait
    unset NAVSEEK_CMD rectangle run_transcode FFMPEG_CMD TRANSCODE_CMD
    done
    echo
    fi

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I launch tovid Gui
    I choose the video files I want to convert into DVD format.
    If I choose to make menus (animated or static) then todisc stops with the above error.
    If I choose no menus then it works fine all the way through and I get a good DVD.

    I know the menu options work in Tovid Gui because I used them many time on my Fedora box.

    I may be missing a dependency, but I can not seem to figure out what I am missing.

    So... why don't you try to install "strings"? It comes in binutils.

    Well, I went through the list on that page, and I have every single dependency and requirement listed.

    I am stuck on this one.

    I still think that is part of the error is a clue:

    /usr/lib/tovid/todisc: line 5587: strings: command not found

    Line 5587 of todisc:

    if ! "${FFMPEG_CMD[@]}" 2>&1 |strings >> "$LOG_FILE";then

    You did it !!!!!!!

    Installing the binutils, fixed my issue.

    Thanks, I was searching for an app called strings.
    Now I know it is in the binutils.


    I think maybe binutils should be added to the rpm for tovid gui.

    Thanks.
