Description

Summary of the bug: When attempting to convert the attached file from its original format to another, the following message appears: "[mpeg4 @ 0000000004d0e940] Video uses a non-standard and wasteful way to store B-frames ('packed B-frames'). Consider using the mpeg4_unpack_bframes bitstream filter to fix it." However, using mpeg4_upack_bframes results in the following error: "[libx264 @ 000000000483d4c0] The mpeg4_unpack_bframes bitstream filter is only useful for mpeg4."

Expected behavior: Either the file should be successfully processed with mpeg4_unpack_brframes, or its use should not be suggested in the first place.

How to reproduce:

  1. Download the attached file, attempt to convert it to H.264, note appearance of message:

ffmpeg -i Doves.avi -bsf:v mpeg4_unpack_bframes -vcodec copy out.avi

ill try to improve the printed message to make the suggestion more clear
