Did you mean hvfhd (720p at 50FPS) ?

--pid always triggers a fetch (unless --info etc. are used),
so --get (-g) is redundant in this case :-)

That line reads:
>From GiP-2.99's longhelp:
--encoding-console-out <name> Character encoding used to encode search
results and other output. Encoding name must be known to Perl Encode
module. Default (only if auto-detect fails): Linux/Unix/OSX = UTF-8,
Windows = cp850
Now, I'm not a perl expert but the above indicate
that your installed Encode perl module should
autodetect your "encodingconsoleout"; if autodetection
fails or encoding is unknown to the module,
then it should default to "cp850".
It appears that senario is now true in your setup;
but "cp850" is still not found (?), hence the error shown...
FWIW, on my setup (WinVistaSP2 x86, en-US locale),
when I generate a debug log with GiP 2.99 I get:
encodingconsolein = cp737
encodingconsoleout = cp737
encodinglocale = cp1253
encodinglocalefs = cp1253
This is with Strawberry Perl 18.104.22.168.

Of course Ralph is a code wizard, so
he could possibly enlighten us further,
but according to --longhelp, "cp1252"
is the value used as a default fallback
when autodetection fails in the cases of
--encoding-locale & --encoding-locale-fs
