Thank you of a good cli application. Working fine with the Kubuntu 12.04.

The compilation will stop with the error: "src/qffmpeg.cpp:118:144: error: ‘av_rescale’ was not declared in this scope". A fix is to add "#include <libavutil/mathematics.h>"
to the "src/qffmpeg.h"

In my system (Fedora) so there is no error, because mathematics.h included in avutil.h, avutil.h included in swscale.h, swscale.h included in qffmpeg.h. Also, this error was not in the SL 6, and Windows.
In the next version added mathematics.h in qffmpeg.h.
