Hi everyone, I received a few files with formats .mpeg and .mp4 and I should encode them to h264. However they are not recognized by k-lite and ffmpeg.
With hex edtior I found that they are different from most of the files with that extension, the first line is MPG4. Anyone has an Idea how can I find out which codec to use?

Thread: Unknown video format
After installing the program I get the following info with MediaInfo:
Complete name : ***
Format : MPEG-PS
File size : 12.3 MiB
ID : 199 (0xC7)
Format : MPEG Audio
Compression mode : Lossy
Do you have a recommendation for a codec or a converter for this format?
I have tried VLC with no luck, I also tried the smplayer but it couldn't play it also.
Regarding the fourCC idea, I'm still looking for that decoder on the internet, If I have any luck. I'll write you.
Do you think the files could be encrypted and that is the reason the mediainfo couldn't find the video stream? Because I don't have much info for them, and I was asked to try and open them.
Any idea how to check if they are encrypted?
Thanks a lot for the help,
I don't think they have viruses.Anyway I work in a Virtual Machine with them mostly because all the programs I install, so they can't do much damage.
I think they just might be encrypted, but thanks for the concern.
