Convert Real audio and video into MP3 and AVI files
Authored by: hermes.trismegis on Oct 03, '06 04:43:07AM

Thanks for the great 'hint'!

However, I've had a few difficulties.

I grabbed ffmpegX 0.0.9x. I downloaded mpeg2enc.intel as well as ffmpegXbinaries20060307 (including mencoder/mplayer). I followed directions and 'found' the appropriate files, then installed.

I made the reallib folder on the desktop and copied the 14 files from inside realplayer.

I went to Library > Application Support, and there is no ffmpegX folder.

WTF?

On the ffmpegX page they direct to Helix, for a copy of macos-gcc3-pb. I see no OSX builds. I tried to search on their main page and returned a bunch of lame emails.

So Helix looks ├╝ber complicated and purposely not user friendly.

If I can go the route of just copying the files to the Library, that'd be great, but WTF?

Namaste.

There are three Library folders to be aware of.

Your user library -

/Users/(username)/Library/
/System/Library/
/Library/

The folder you want is is the last of those - in the root folder of your disk, open the Library folder there, inside that is another Application Support folder, this one has the ffmpegX folder inside it.

/Library/Application Support/ffmpegX/

Sorry, typo. That line should have read:

Your user library folder, and two system library folders.
