Pete H.,

I had the same problem as you are having. But on windows.

Mine turned out to be another piece of software that I had installed,
specifically Image Magick, that had added it’s own directory to the Windows
PATH and just happened to have a version of ffmpeg for itself to use as
well. So from that point on, unbeknownst to me, I was running a much older
version of ffmpeg.

I ended up doing C:> “where ffmpeg” at the prompt and it showed me where
ffmpeg was actually getting called from.

If  you are running linux I think it is either which ffmpeg or where ffmpeg
that will show you the same results.

Any way, Good Luck
