 Mencoder Error
Solution

You are probably getting this error because the video is not compatible with the DropBox encoder software. There are a couple things you can try. First, try redownloading the DropBox from www.dropshots.com/upload#upload.
 
Or, you can try using a different version of the DropBox, which you can download from here:
http://api.dropshots.com/binaries/DropBoxSetup5.0.exe
 
If this doesn't work, then you will need to convert your file to another format in order to upload it successfully, or you can change the capture format on your camera, if possible. Other video formats that we support are:
 
MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video
MPEG-4 in all variants
QuickTime codecs including Sorenson v1/v3, Cinepak, RPZA and others
Windows Media Video 7/8 (WMV1/2)
Windows Media Video 9 (WMV3)
3gp, 3gpp, and 3g2
