This is a terminal console application. To create video files for the Sansa Fuze (without using the official "Sansa Media Converter", which is Windows-only, produces files with bad A/V sync, and is a bit annoying), the video has to be transcoded to mpeg-4 part 2 video and mp3 audio, with specific codec settings, frame rate, resolution etc., see this thread on the Sandisk forum for details. This can be done using ffmpeg or mencoder. However the Fuze also requires a very specific structure for the AVI xontainer format and cannot play the AVI files created using mencoder or most other video encoders. Although remuxing them using the AVI-Mux GUI application creates playable files, the Fuze still has some problems with these files and sometimes crashes during seeking. The purpose of fuzemux is therefore to remux avi files into the exact container format required for playing them on the Fuze.
