Cool looking for video diagnostic tool


From time to time I try to play saved video from youtube but it is not working.<br>
I receive the following lines from MPlayer.<br>
Quote:
Playing /tmp/FlashqikYbO.
libavformat file format detected.
[flv @ 0xb7f27c48]Unsupported video codec (7)
[flv @ 0xb7f27c48]Unsupported audio codec (a)
and
Quote:
Cannot find codec matching selected -vo and video format 0x7.
Read DOCS/HTML/en/codecs.html!
But I can't find DOCS/HTML/en/codecs.html this at my machine, damn
I guess it is some rare flv format, no one of my video players are able to play following video.<br>
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3tcS...eature=related <br>
it happens often, so I was wondering maybe exist some video diagnostic tool that will provide me all info about video file?

thanks, it's pretty useful thing, but I want to get information about video and VLC is only saying this
Quote:
main error: no suitable decoder module for fourcc `undf'.
VLC probably does not support this sound or video format
Unfortunately it doesn't provide information what I should do about this undefined codec, or where I can get it
So, still looking for advice

you have to install libavformat, as the message say. It is available in most Linux repository, if your distribution have one.

Talking

that's the problem, the library is installed, and other players are saying different. Totem for example want "a Flash demuxer plugin which is not installed".
