Description

I need to use 'mpeg' as a fourcc with mpeg2video codec. I know this is wrong, but seems to be necessary to get the file to with an Omneon product I'm using. When I try to use -tag:v mpeg to force the codec, ffmpeg doesn't allow me to 'force'.

ffmpeg -y -i example.mov -tag:v mpeg -vcodec mpeg2video examplempeg.mov
