    Greetings,

    i have a file produced with the Alchemy TV card (Apple intermed + PCM audio) which i am unable to encode to h264.mp4

    Maybe you help me out

    http://www.michaeldicker.com/privat/ffmpegx/HSTEST.mov (1MB)

    <edited because of lack of info>

    First, it does not recognize the file well. Wrong size, aspect and length.
    Is that the reason for failings that it does not recog Apple intermed codec?

    Interesting thing is, if i encode it to xvid .avi with mp3 audio the file is recognized.

    I have tested the file a bit more and it seems to be a mencoder "problem".

    ffmpeg as codec works, mencoder not.

    It works choosing any possible ffmpeg option and .avi as container


    Hope that helps for "bugfixing"

    After 2 Weeks testing and trieing i give up.

    I looks like ffmpegX cant encode this file
    "APPLE Intermed. Codec" to h264.

    Hi,


    there is NO "decode with Quicktime"
    Option if you encode to h.264.

    Thanks

    ? Er, that can't be right. (Fiddles with FFMPEGX).
    Ah, you are using the H.264(mencoder) encoder. Frankly, I wouldn't trust it anyway. There have been many reports of lip-sync problems with it, and it's not iPod-compatible anyway. Use the H.264(x264) encoder instead. It's more compatible, robust, and it allows decoding with Quicktime.

    Any particular reason you want to use the mencoder encoder?
