    Hello,

    I'm trying to convert an .mov file to .flv and the conversion is failing due to the codec used to encode the source (I believe).
    Here's the source code:

    Uncompressed 10-bit 4:2:2
    Unsupported codec (id=0) for input stream #0.0

    ... is there a way to achieve this or will I need to convert the source material first?

    thanks!

    You may try to let QuickTime help ffmpegX by activating the Decode with QT checkbox in the Options tab.

    Hey Case,

    thanks for the suggestion. I tried that out and unfortunately got the same results.

    Unsupported codec (id=0) for input stream #0.0

    Anything else I should try?

    Can you play the source in VLC? If so, what does VLC say about it (check info)?

    In stubborn cases, you may wish to use VLC's transcode engine to convert the source into something else. If that "something else" isn't what you ultimately want, use high bitrates on the intermediate file to minimize quality loss suffered in the final transcode.

    thanks for the suggestion! interestingly enough, VLC couldn't play any of the files. quicktime plays them without issue though, so I'm thinking about just converting the file with Quicktime and trying that through ffmpegx.
