Last time this happened that last line wasn't there, and the file was corrupted but openable.

I git cloned the source from the avconv git repo, that's probably why it's not working properly. How do I get the source for the last stable release in git? (My idea of version control is apt-get source)

I downloaded a "release" source and compiled it but I can't test it as it's giving me:

Preset lossless_ultrafast specified for stream 0:0, but could not be opened.

A "Release" version of libav did the trick, but I had to put my presets in ~/.avconv as the older version presets weren't compatible with the newer build.
