comment Ubuntu 11.10 login screen acting strange after installing alongside windows
Correction, I did have gdm. I switched to lightdm, which gave me the login screen I expected but caused a new problem. GRUB now flashes on the screen for less than a second which doesn't give me the time to select the OS I want.

comment ffmpeg or mencoder - Convert a video using another one as a reference format-wise
True, didn't think of that. It also looks like your way's output is easier to handle. I'll edit to reflect that.

It happens with any of the three flv files and 2 wmv files I've tried. I'm reinstalling ffmpeg now based on the guide you gave me in your deleted answer.

I tried that before asking. I got the error [libtheora @ 0x2551920]theora_encode_init failed and an empty output file. What do I do about that?
