First, thanks for this fantastic iTunes alternative. Works like a charm, dispite of the convertion option.

The ffmpeg auto-install feature fails so I copied the ffmpeg executable from the help docs (following the path instruction)
http://www.floola.com/download/click.php?action=go&to=ffmpeg-win
.. no luck.

Then I tried these packages:
http://ffmpeg.arrozcru.com/wiki/index.php?title=Links
.. they include folder structures with ffmpeg.exe inside a subfolder. Confused.

Compiling on my own: sincerely, I have no idea how to do this even with step by step instructions from the link above.

!!
The strange thing is, when I start Floola the ffmpeg.exe process appears in the task manager.
!!

My environment:
- Win7 Prof
- iPod Classic
- Floola 5.8 installed on my Ipod under G:\Apps\Floola

Any hint or help?

Update:

I found ffmpeg.exe inside the hidden folder: \iPod_Control\Floola\ on my iPod.
This file was possibly placed there through the auto-install option but the help doc mentions that ffmpeg.exe should be “in the same folder of Floola.exe” ?

By the way, the ffmpeg.exe prevents the unplugging of the iPod as USB device because its still a running process even after closing Floola.

?? Help needed please.

Yes, if you are running a program from the usb drive/ipod you can not unplug it because the files needed are on the ipod/usb stick. For converting files that take more then a couple of minutes I use Avidemux. It’s free and works great for me. It’s got ipod pre-sets so you should be all ready to go.

What’s not working with ffmpeg?

ffmpeg.exe can either be in the same path as floola.exe or under iPod_Control\Floola (which is the autoinstall path), so the autoinstall feature seems to be working.

Sid32, thanks for the your recommendation (I´ll give it a try) but I intend to let Floola app manage all tasks. Lets see.

Floola, autoinstall feature saves a ffmpeg.exe into Pod_Control\Floola but when I try to import a video file it suggests me to install a converter first. Another strange thing: under Preferences>Convert I still have that Install button.

I own the iPod Classic 6G.
More ideas?

any resolution to this? I have the same problem.

I’ve tried reinstalling by 1) deleting ffmpeg process running… then 2) deleting the Pod_Control\Floola directory on the Ipod to reinstall Floola & FFmpeg from scratch, but the install program under the “Conversion” menu on Floola gives me a very strange err about not being able to download ffmpeg-win from some odd site called download.schoonzie.com

Cant find any decent documentation about installing ffmpeg manually :-(

help.

Ipod Classic 6G (w/ 160gig hard drive)
prefer WinXP(32bit) but have tried (no luck) Win7(64bit) & latest Ubuntu.
