If WinFF crashes under Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, you can try the solutions given below which may solve your problem. This problem is common after upgrading to Ubuntu 12.04.

Make a backup of the original presets.xml file with this command:

cp ~/.winff/presets.xml presets.xml.back

Let's now replace the old presets.xml file with a new one downloaded from the publisher's website as follows:

cd /tmp

wget -c http://goo.gl/l9cTl -O presets-libavcodec53-v4.xml.gz

 gzip -d presets-libavcodec53-v4.xml.gz

mv presets-libavcodec53-v4.xml ~/.winff/

mv ~/.winff/presets-libavcodec53-v4.xml presets.xml

WinFF should work fine now. If this hasn't solved your problem, you can simply reinstall WinFF with these commands:

rm -rf ~/.winff/

sudo apt-get install --reinstall winff
