    It gives me a blank black screen with sound on Quicktime and iTunes, it gives me a blank white screen with sound when I put it into TMPGEnc DVD Author, it encodes to a blank green screen with sound in a video converter, and GSpot just gives me "Unknown" and nothing else. It's 1.5 GB for a 4:29 video.

    Drop it into Gspot 2.70 and see what format it is and what codecs are needed to play it.

    qt : Apple QuickTime (.MOV/QT)
    File Type: QuickTime (.MOV)
    Mime Type: video/quicktime

    Codec: dvhp
    Name: <unknown>
    Status: Codec Status Undetermined

    I Googled dvhp codec but all that came up was a suspicious looking European site that probably hosts viruses.

    That appears to be a high definition file, probably from a professional Panasonic video camera. Looking around for ' dvhp ', I found this:

    dvhp DVCPRO-HD 720/60p Video QT
    So I'm guessing it's a DVCPRO-HD Quicktime format.

    And: http://www.mediacollege.com/video/format/dv/dvcprohd.html

    This appears to be a converter program, probably expensive, but they have a demo version, so you could at least give that a try. One of our other members more familiar with the format may have some better ideas for conversion or viewing. Or if this program works, you could look around for freeware solutions.

    The program did successfully convert the video...to other formats I can't play, lol. It appears to convert only HD -> HD.

    I'm trying to eventually get this on a DVD.

    I guess this belongs in Advanced Conversion now....

    that's what happens when you get mystery files from unknown sources.

    I think the 1st link page has changed - no sign of a converter.

    The 2nd link led me to a converter which I tested... & which gave me the same result as the problem - an AVI (type 1) file with no video!! Looks like you need a DEcoder to take you TO the converter... My tuppence.

  15. Thanks, but it's given me an error message: Error [swScaler: Unknown format is not supported as input format Cannot get resampling context] !

    I do know it's a DVCPRO HD file, made, I presume, with a Panasonic HD cam (from other posts/forums) and rendered in a language that no common mortal video player can interpret... let alone demux! (I have to mix a voiceover to it for a client. I do it every day in avi... ).

  16. fourcc dvhp?

    ffmpeg lists it in the supported list:
    http://ftp.free.fr/MPlayer/DOCS/codecs-status.html

    you should be able to play it back in smplayer or mplayer, for example, and pipe it out if you are command line saavy

    for converting you could try use command line or a gui for ffmpeg, eg. winff, avanti

    it really depends on which ffmpeg build you use (there are many builds, updated almost weekly, with different branches)
