What are you trying to watch them on?
If  you want to watch them on a stand alone dvd player, you will find devede in the repos that will allow you to make disks out of any media files including flv, without any expert knowledge.

the same happened to me, I have /home on a separate partition and this was not correctly mounted.
It is an ext3 partition the installer had it as an ext4.... I altered this but on reboot after displaying no error home was not mounted and in /etc/fstab as ext4
93  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Cannot connect to X server on: March 16, 2010, 14:48:58 PM
try this

xdg-su -c "kwrite menu.lst"

on a side note sudo worked for me, maybe you want to cd back home and try with the full path

sudo kwrite /boot/grub/menu.lst

Disclaimer could cause loss/corruption of data
How to taken from http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=42584&sid=af25013b24d0ee6ee002fc469faf3aec

This does produce a noticeable speed increase, but please heed the warning you could lose or corrupt your files
it is safer on laptops due to having a battery but loss of power on a desktop or server will cause corruption.

okay, still with me? good for the theory behind this, there is good description on the above link.
ok as root edit /etc/fstab in your favourite editor I will use nano in my example
sudo nano /etc/fstab
Now Pardus being friendly as it is, the filesystems have nice labels find your / and if you have a separate /home here is mine
LABEL=PARDUS_SWAP    none             swap      defaults,sw          0 0
LABEL=PARDUS_ROOT    /                ext4      defaults,user_xattr,noatime 0 0
LABEL=PARDUS_HOME1   /home            ext3      defaults,user_xattr,noatime 0 0
proc                 /proc            proc      nosuid,noexec        0 0
sysfs                /sys             sysfs     defaults             0 0
debugfs              /sys/kernel/debug debugfs   defaults             0 0
tmpfs                /dev/shm         tmpfs     nodev,nosuid,noexec  0 0
/dev/sda3            /media/windows        ntfs-3g   dmask=007,fmask=117,gid=6,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
so where the attributes are we can add further options
data=writeback,commit=60,nobarrier for ext4
data=writeback,commit=60,barrier=0 for ext3

below is my new /etc/fstab
LABEL=PARDUS_SWAP    none             swap      defaults,sw          0 0
LABEL=PARDUS_ROOT    /                ext4      defaults,user_xattr,noatime,data=writeback,commit=60,nobarrier 0 1
LABEL=PARDUS_HOME1   /home            ext3      defaults,user_xattr,noatime,data=writeback,commit=60,barrier=0  0 2
proc                 /proc            proc      nosuid,noexec        0 0
sysfs                /sys             sysfs     defaults             0 0
debugfs              /sys/kernel/debug debugfs   defaults             0 0
tmpfs                /dev/shm         tmpfs     nodev,nosuid,noexec  0 0
/dev/sda3            /media/windows        ntfs-3g   dmask=007,fmask=117,gid=6,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
finally to enable the new options we have to tell the file system
tune2fs -o journal_data_writeback /dev/sdxx
do this for each partition that you altered in /etc/fstab

finally before you reboot double check your fstab for any errors such as wrapped lines/ no comers or you may not be able to boot, however you can always use a livecd to fix if you do.

notice I have enabled checking the fs too, you dont have to do this but it makes sense to

Once your happy reboot and enjoy

97  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Pardus 2009 with XFCE on: August 17, 2009, 16:23:15 PM
default configuration is usually in /etc/skel/icemw copied to .icewm on startup

examples in /usr/share/icemw

with xfce it loads a basic gnome-session to supply certain services, hence the dependency

quick and dirty howtos



Some nice examples of many wm's their integrated work is excellent

98  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Pardus 2009 with XFCE on: August 17, 2009, 13:19:59 PM
all that does is stop kde desktop services, I personally skip that and the XDG alteration, as I may decide to use a kde app, I just switch to gdm as I as I it a better login manager. On a modernish (ie  machine there is no real benefit, but would be wise on lower resources.

Re Icewm, that can also start gnome/kdebased services at start upto like xfce.
I think the way to go with icewm would be base it on xfce and start the same services, and create a nice Pardus based theme
99  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: Can't login - kde will not start on: August 16, 2009, 19:51:34 PM
as root

chown dick /home/dick/*


chown dick /home/dick/.*

should help
102  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: StartX on: July 31, 2009, 11:23:07 AM
sounds like you set an option that is not configured correct.

go back into login manager and click default

switch to another vt and try restarting xdm(kdm)

sudo or as root service xdm restart if that works it was down to your settings

you should not be able to select xfce from kdm

also worth checking the service is set to run on boot

service xdm on
103  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: StartX on: July 31, 2009, 07:56:53 AM
Sorry but now I'm slightly confused, what  isn't working? when you boot it leaves you at a console and you then log in and type startx you launch an xfce session?

Have you uninstalled any kde packages? what is is you xorg.log?

the option to add to the kernel was nomodeset

Was the service running? what happened with no modeset?
Did you alter /etc/innitab if so try default
