#1 can't get stdin to work

I want to send thousands of jpg files to create the avi.
When I try only with a few (2-3) files on the command
line it works great, but if I try to redirect the standard
input with the "< filenames" instead of typing the actual
filenames it doesn't work.

Step by step:
1. create a file with the filenames
ls /jpegfilesmap > filenames

2. try to use filenames as stdin
jpegtoavi -f 640 480 < filenames > test.avi

This doesn't work, the software responds like it does
when an argument is missing.

I use the Debian (testing) with kernel 2.4.24

    Try this :
    cat filenames | jpegtoavi -f 640 480 > test.avi
