Some number of users just seem to be confused by EVERYTHING. It doesn't
matter to them that the encoding process worked flawlessly, the fact
that "frameno.avi" or "codecs.conf" was "not found" will drive them
I don't think that this message is any more confusing than the rest.
Changing this single message won't solve the problem... You'd need to
change mplayer so it doesn't output any non-fatal messages at all, by
default. That's about the only thing that would make mplayer less
confusing for the mindless masses.
And that's just a start... You also need to make "-idx" a default, add
"-zoom" when a driver doesn't have hardware scaling, and many more
"friendly" changes like that.
And I don't even want to think about how many changes it will take to
make Mencoder idiot-friendly!
