Configure conversion ? When I click on okay, another page comes, which says" converter and a box next to it . in the box is written FFMpeg. but I can change it to MEncoder. In another box, says configure conversion rules. When I click on it, nothing happen.Thanks for your help.

Problem solved, when the conversion window opens up, just disable "Conversion enable" then everything is back to normal.

Good thing I still have my old Emac, went on it to see how the Conversion was set up.

No, this reply is not helpful. It simply generates this little gem:

"This service requires the conversion feature to be enabled. Configure conversion ?"

And the same clicking on buttons that makes nothing happen and going around in circles with the escape key.
