FFMPEG - test.mp4: unknown format


Hello all,

Well i've installed ffmpeg and it's working quite well
but whenever i try to convert mp4 to flv then i get
following error.

Did you use something like 'ffmpeg -i test.mp4 -vcodec flv test.flv'? You didn't post your actual commandline. What does 'mediainfo' say about your "test.mp4"?

"ffmpeg -i test.mp4 -vcodec flv test.flv" gives same output that I wrote first.

and "mediainfo -f test.mp4" gives following

Can you post the output of:
Code:
ffmpeg -i test.mp4
Maybe this can give us some ideas.
