Description

I have a MPEG2 video file that is stored inside MPEG1 container. During transcoding ffmpeg fails with the following message:

[mpeg2video @ 0x15f01f0] mpeg_decode_postinit() failure

Stream mapping:

Stream #0.0 -> #0.0

Error while opening encoder for output stream #0.1 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height

I used this command:

$ ffmpeg -i mpeg2_in_mpeg1.vcd -vcodec mpeg4 -acodec libfaac /tmp/test.mp4

No matter what bitrates/width/height or other parameters I use, I always get this message. The only thing that can make ffmpeg to transcode is to disable audio with -an option. But this results in movie without audio track.

It seems that ffmpeg/ffplay could not determine audio track parameters. I've tried ffmpeg versions 0.6.1, 0.8.4 and 0.8.5 from debian-multimedia packages.

At the same time mediainfo recognizes properly the both audio and video tracks:

You have to pass -analyzeduration 6000000 to ffmpeg, audio stream starts late.
While I hope the preset value will be increased, there will be always be samples that need an even higher value.

Note that FFmpeg has switched to git - see http://ffmpeg.org/download.html - and on this bug tracker, only current git head (and current releases) are supported, your version is ancient and misses many features / contains many bugs that have been fixed meanwhile.
