I am trying to transcode some video to x264 and I am struggling with errors. I am pretty much just left things to default but getting header damaged on a lot of my older videos.
They play ok in VLC so they do not seem beyond repair. but just cant seem to transcode them.
I am using the command line;
ffmpeg -i bean.mp4 -vcodec libx264 -map 0:0 -c:a:0 copy -map 0:1 -f mp4 bean_out.mp4
I have included my log here;
I think it just needs the video resolution providing but not sure.
Any help would be appreciated,

may be post a small sample of such a video.
If ffmpeg is right and "looks like this file was encoded with (divx4/(old)xvid/opendivx) " and it really is an old non-mpeg-4 compliant file the whole thing might get tricky.users currently on my ignore list: deadrats, Stears555
