i just got a strange behaviour on playback of video in gridflow. on my
laptop it works without problemas but on my workstation the following
error occurs:
error: RuntimeError: unknown suffix '.mov'
/usr/local/lib/pd/extra/gridflow/format/main.rb:419:in `new'
/usr/local/lib/pd/extra/gridflow/format/main.rb:175:in `_0_open'
... you might be able to track this down from the Find menu.
by opening the video file.
i'm using an up2date gridflow_CVS with applequicktime enabled
both system are running kubuntu 7.10 & the video file is enconded in
mencoder although examplevideos won't work either...
thanks for help

video file(60MB!):

generating ./config.make
generating config.h
See ./config.log if you want the details of the configuration tests.
If you are satisfied with that configuration, you may go on,
and do "make". "make install" is not needed anymore,
just move your gridflow directory to "lib/pd/extra".
If you get stuck, you could contact the author about it,
but first make sure you read "doc/install.html".

Planet Pluto bleibt!
