cannot convert a video in apple's format

Postby raffairon » Sun Oct 07, 2012 12:56 pm

I have downloaded a video from itunes. The video has .m4v extension and according to MediaInfo is in some type of AVC/AAC format. Nor VLC neither Windows Media PLayer can play that video. The only one that can play the video and do it correctly is QuickTime 7 from Apple.

I want to convert it into MPEG2 as video and mp3 as audio, but i have failed both with FFMPEG and with MEncoder. I have also tried to compile ffmpeg from source, but I do not know which codec I need and I don't want to compile all the codecs from scratch. I report here the command line I used for FFMPEG and the MediaInfo information for the video file. In the latter I had to remove a part due to forum policy against new users posting links. The part I have removed is substituted with
"[REMOVED DUE TO FORUM POLICY ABOUT CANNOT POSTING LINKS]".

The FFMPEG console output is in the next post due to forum policy that set a maximum number of characters allowed per post. It is also truncated for the same reason, because also alone in a post would trepass the limit. So it is not the complete output.

I have also uploaded the video on the web, I can give you a link in some way you told me.

FFMPEG command line

"C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaCoder\codecs\ffmpeg.exe" -i "Love Thy Brother.m4v" -vcodec mpeg2video -acodec libmp3lame output.avi > conversion.log 2>&1

Re: cannot convert a video in apple's format

Could you please upload it to our FTP server, so that developers can test the video and see what is wrong with it?
You have more info on uploading the sample files to our FTP server on this page: http://ffmpeg.org/bugreports.html
It seems that the video is either corrupted or the decoder for such video stream is buggy. Either way, the precise judgement will only be viable if we can actually get a test sample.

I have done it. The file is called "Love Thy Brother.m4v". There is the text file but I have not split up in several fragments to avoid corruption. So is one file only of 109 MB. I remark QuickTime open and plays it correctly, and that I have downloaded it from iTunes

I just noticed the output log is not complete, due to forum restrictions for new users (because we have had a lot of spammers active recently). Could you please just copy paste command line + entire output log into a new bug ticket at the bug tracker, in order for developers to be able to reproduce it: http://ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/newticket
Just mention in your ticket that you've already uploaded the sample video, no need to upload it again.

Yes, I've seen. We'll try to reply there in order to resolve that ticket. Please follow the replies there, since more developers will follow bug tracker than forum. Thanks again for reporting that issue.
