Perhaps that is a lack of proper documentation.  I do not know as I 
haven't messed with transcode recently.  Apearently it is a major FAQ on 
the support lists for it, juding from this somewhat bothered reply:

That definately seems it would be the next thing to look at.  Failing 
that, get on that list and let them know what's up, and be sure to 
mention the verisons of nasm.  Good luck,
