ffmpeg is not using the provided preset-files:


strace turn out, that it is looking for files with an "avpreset" extension
(which are not present)

The output of
 strace -e trace=open ffmpeg -i MVI_0211.MOV  -pre libvpx-1080p  out.avi

open("/home/mike/.avconv/mpeg4-libvpx-1080p.avpreset", O_RDONLY) = -1
ENOENT (No such file or directory)
