     8Recently, a bug was discovered in ffmpeg, which prevents this script from the normal functioning. Since the [ bug trac ticket] is still not confirmed as a bug, it can happen that this issue is not considered a bug, so it might not even be resolved. If that happens, the only way to successfully run the script will be to use real files, instead of named pipes (fifos). If you want to contribute to help resolve this issue, please reply to that bug trac ticket and try to give your opinion about the subject. It might influence the solution to be found more quickly.
     10So, if you really need this to work for you, try using real files, instead of fifos (named pipes). Fifos are declared in this script using "mkfifo name_and_path_of_the_fifo", so just try to comment out those lines and hopefully real files will be created, so the process will not end up in the deadlock. It will also help if you read this FAQ item, to understand what does the script do (it just automates that process):
     12If that doesn't help, please read that FAQ item and do it all manually... I'm really sorry this can't be as automated as we all would like it to be, but that's the way the things are in this moment.
