[FLVTool2-users] FLVTool2 Error + FLVMDI questions

I am trying to simulate injecting metadata into FLV files generated with the
On2 Flix Engine for Linux.  One of our flash developers is programming the
streaming method using FLV/PHP/lighthttpd, and it's my job to get our entire
content library transcoded from DVD to flash8 (using Linux) and get the
metadata required by the streaming technique into the files (using Linux).
 
First things first, using the subversion tree checked out from today, on
Ubutnu linux, I am getting this error:
 
flvtool2 -UP our_movie_480p.flv our_movie_480p_with_meta.flv 
ERROR: undefined method `[]' for nil:NilClass
ERROR: /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/flv/stream.rb:138:in `add_meta_tag'

ERROR: /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/flvtool2.rb:228

Second, is it accurate to say that using:
    
    flvtool2 -UP [infile] [outfile]
 
Will make an outfile with all the correct metadata information to use with
the PHP style streaming methods?
