    ffmpeg on linux


    I have created a sym link to ffmpeg in my HS directory

    ln -s /usr/bin/ffmpeg /opt/HomeSeer/ffmpeg.exe

    and the config page says that ffmpeg is installed but snapshots do not work anymore. This system was previously on windows and running fine but has broken after being migrated to linux

    Any idea what I need to do so that FFMPEG will work again? i don't see any errors anywhere but nothing is created.

    Use -h to get full help or, even better, run 'man ffmpeg'
