Hi all,

I am using ffmepg on arch - the update from today return an error 
because of me using date in the name of the file recorded (see below for 
the command)

the error return no file or directory of cam_`date +%#F_%T`.mkv (being 
the current date/time)

Do I must change the format of the command or else?

Looking forward from your replies,


=> ffmpeg -f alsa -i pulse -acodec ac3 -f video4linux2 -s 640x480 -r 15 
-i /dev/video0 -vcodec libx264 -preset medium -crf 26 -threads 0 
cam_`date +%#F_%T`.mkv
