    I installed ffmpeg a few months ago and have been using it along with ffmpeg php to get jpg frameshots, over the last few months a need has grown to be able to let users upload videos or varying types and convert them to either .flv or .mp4 to enable the movies to be watched via a flash movie player online (using flowplayer).

    I've been trying to use php exec to execute a command line to convert from .mp4 to .flv, when i test the command on the command line i get the following error:

    this is the command : ffmpeg -i MVI_4400.AVI -vcodec flv tap-dance.flv

    Error: Error while opening codec for output stream #0.1

    if i check my ffmpeg version i get the following:

    [[email protected] ~]# ffmpeg -version

    Am i missing a package? any guidance on restalling if so would be helpful.

    codec in the package

    will this support Matroska format too?

    extension - .mkv

    That's the first time I hear of such a format, so I guess the answer is no...
