    Hello! We found the tutorial for capturing 40d programmes & have saved the 1st programme, but have got stuck on mux FLV to MP4. The command prompt didnt get us far as the folder address wasnt recognised....but we found that by going directly to the rip download folder & clicking on the 'command' subfolder [ as seen on the tutorial directly below the CH4 file] we could see for an instance [less that half a second] the C:\Windows\system 32\cmd.exe. black [bios??] display window.

    Can you Guys help us find that C:\Windows\system 32\cmd.exe. black [bios??] display window. so that we can enter the instruction to convert to MP4? Our rip down load & CH4 programme is in our download folder

    I believe you are just having problems opening the command prompt? thats what cmd.exe is.

    You can find it under accessories in the start menu

    Thanks for that ...we had found the link but adding to the users\ etc > Downloads>40d-rip-download-package " is not recognised as an internal or external command operable program or batch file" . Sorry if we are being thick!

    Hello ! Thanks for your help so far. This is the address of where the 40d is stored.

    C:\Users\Claireat111\Downloads\40d-rip-download-package

    PS how does one take a screen shot as per your image above & the bios black box for the commands?

    On your keyboard there should be a key that says PrtScn (if you're using a Win Keyboard, not sure about macs) or something similair. Press it and open up an imaging application such as MS paint. In there right click and choose paste. It should bring up a snap shot. If you want to take a pic of a particular window and not just the whole screen press alt+PrtScn :)

    Keep typing cd.. then press enter in the comment prompt window untill you get to the root of your drive C:\

    Then type cd C:\Users\Claireat111\Downloads\40d-rip-download-package you should then be in the correct folder.

    You have done it in your last attempt on the screenshot, you have navigated to the folder you need to be in

    So just continue on with the tutorial, type in:

    "ffmpeg -i CH4_08_02_900_50798001001001_001.flv -vcodec copy -acodec copy your-download.mp4"

    with no quotes and you will have your download converted.

    CH4_08_02_900_50798001001001_001.flv is the name if the file ripped from 4od.

    You are trying to move to the folder and convert the video at the same time, you need to be in the folder first before you can run the command to convert the video.

    So first cd C:\Users\Claireat111\Downloads\40d-rip-download-package

    Then ffmpeg -i CH4_08_02_900_50798001001001_001.flv -vcodec copy -acodec copy your-download.mp4

    Looking at your screenshot in the post here your actual download is 0kb, meaning it has failed. Try downloading the program again and you should have then worked out how to convert it to a MP4 (Y)
