Your question is not clear based on your later comments, are you trying to produce a video from PNG images ? –  João Pinto Nov 30 '10 at 15:25
    
No I actually want to crate a powerpoint like presentation using the vlc player (this presentation contains videos and still images). More infos: askubuntu.com/questions/15012/… –  ynh Nov 30 '10 at 15:28

That error is complaining that VLC doesn't have a codec for decoding PNGs... And why should it? PNGs are images. It's a bit like asking VLC to open a .doc file.

VLC doesn't have code for decoding PNGs because that's not what it's for. PNGs aren't supported.

If you want them to be, ask at VideoLan.org but I doubt they really want to invest time implementing something they think other applications should handle.

Well I have tried to convert the PNG file to an AVI with this command : 'ffmpeg -b 1024k -r 1 -i img.png img.avi' but the image looses quality –  ynh Nov 30 '10 at 15:05
