[FLVTool2-users] Getting some errors - help requested

I have been using FLMDI (http://www.buraks.com/flvmdi/) to inject metadata
into .flv files so the backward/forward buttons on our video player work.
This is awkward because I have to download, inject then re-upload -- but it
does accomplish what we need.

Now, I'd like to learn to run flvtools2 on the server instead, but I'm
having trouble figuring it out.  I used the gui interface on FLMDI, so I
don't really know much about how this works.

I tried this command:

flvtool2 -U janetest_300.flv stdout janetest2_300.flv

but I got this error...

therea at therealnews.com [~/public_html/media/trn_2006-12-20]# flvtool2 -U
janetes    t_300.flv stdout janetest2_300.flv

I've read through the examples and the past message threads but I'm not
seeing any directions that are understandable to me. Can anyone point me in
the right direction?

Thanks,
Jane
