Description

Many cell phone cameras are now producing 3gp files with no moov atoms, only mdat. Right now ffmpeg can't do anything with them.

$ ffmpeg -i 12423.3gp

Support for this format would be great.

There are many mdat-only files in the ISO at https://archive.org/download/BMUG-TVROMToo/TV-ROM%20Too%E2%84%A2.iso. These files do play in QuickTime? 7 but not in ffmpeg. I'll attach a sample.

Perhaps, but where is data that hold video codec and audio codec info. it certainly is not in those files.
