This looks a very neat piece of work although some of the options might need explaining more.

I have been waiting for something like this for a long time ( Murnong ) so was eager to download , install and try. However i cant seem to get it running as when i drag a web page tom it either straight from the filer or browser i get an error :- 'An application that loads a file of this type has not been found by the filer. Open a directory display containing the required application and try again' and then nothing. Anybody got a clue.

FFmpeg is cool. This too is long waited for. Nice one.

Well, I sometimes get this message if I don't have either !Edit or !StrongED loaded on the iconbar.

If you guys are having problems with conversion, why not try Zamzar ([link]) . Converts most formats. Firefox only.

I have permanently got !StrongED loaded hasve tried with !Edit and makes no difference. Maybe its my OS version ( 5.11 ) but dont have any way of testing this though.
