when i tried to use vlc, it gave me the following message:


Streaming / Transcoding failed:

It seems your FFMPEG (libavcodec) installation lacks the following encoder:

MPEG Audio layer 1/2/3.

If you don't know how to fix this, ask for support from your distribution.


any ideas on what to do here? and i didn't understand how to use avidemux

You must use VLC package and plugins from Penguin Liberation Front (PLF). VLC from the main repos is compiled with support ONLY for "free" media formats. There's no such issue with VLC from PLF, you can I/O virtually whatever audio/video file you wish.

Installing VLC from PLF will also bring as a dependency ffmpeg from PLF, which supports more formats than the one from main repos.
