QuickTime Error: "Error -2041: an invalid sample description was found in the movie"

While trying to play back a simple video encoded with FFmpeg and lame, I get: "Error -2041: an invalid sample description was found in the movie"

I'm on a Windows machine and am unsure if the problem is just on Windows or on Linux too.

The command line I used was:

ffmpeg -i "input.mp4" -y -acodec libmp3lame -vn "output.mp4"

No errors were displayed while encoding.

I'm using version git-41bf67d built on 2011-08-16

mp3 should be accepted in a .mp4 container and QuickTime should be able to play it back, so I believe this is an FFmpeg bug.

Compete, uncut output missing.

Do you believe this is a regression? If not, why do you think this is supposed to work? Do you have a mp3-in-isom sample that works with QuickTime?

(Works fine with -f mov)

Please reopen if an isom file with mp3 that can be played with QuickTime is found.
