Hi Oszkar,

I get the error when I attempt to run this script from the shell :

flvtool2 -P meta_test.flv

Not sure what would create the error:

ERROR: undefined method `&' for "\005":String

How do you usually troubleshoot? Also, does anyone have FLVTool2 working 
with Ruby 1.9? Could that be causing a problem?

Thanks again for any help you can provide.
