DeVeDe Error with OpenShot

22 October 2009 Leave a comment

Yesterday I decided to install DeVeDe on my HP desktop.  I had it installed on Ubuntu 9.04 with no problem, but when I try to install it on Ubuntu 9.10 and I get and error.  I t says that it cannot find mencoder and mplayer.  In which I have both Screenshot-Errorinstalled.  I reinstalled devede, mencoder and mplayer thinking that it would fix the problem. But it didn’t.  I realized soon after that during all of this VLC was broken, too.  So I decided to do a little look-see and saw that ffmpeg was uninstalled.  So I tried to install it with apt-get.  Suffice to say, “Broken Packages”.  So I try aptitude.  Aptitude wants to remove OpenShot.  I was hesitate about it but I decided to give it a try. So now, VLC and DeVeDe works, but no OpenShot.  I tried to install OpenShot again, but now it wants to remove ffmpeg.  Not thinking, I comply and lose VLC and DeVeDe functionality again.  I am lost again wondering what did I do(my mind isn’t what it should be).  After a couple hours I remember what I did, and redone all the mess I started.  I lost OpenShot but gained VLC and DeVeDe.  I still haven’t figured it all out.

Edit:  Apparently OpenShot uses a different version of ffmpeg.  I saw this on the OpenShot website.  I guess I am at a loss.
