in the documentation does not indicate that put the = sign anywhere
if I have mistakes it is because of the documentation that is erroneous
for example a few days ago I sent an email to question because the bit rate is
never as requested program
also always have the absurd phrase to ask me the full output without cuts, but
the system sends me an email telling me back that do not send emails as
lasrgos, people say that I am who explained bad, but not true, I've seen
that they help people worse than I that follows no rules
the community does not bother want to understand my mistakes (caused by
erroneous documentation)
