I am trying to convert mpg videos to avi and am getting no audio. I don't think it is relevant but the source is mpeg2 1920x1080 29.97 f/s, ac3 48k Hz 384kb/s
Just trying a simple command line like the following, the video encodes, and it appears the audio copies, but there is no sound on playback.
ffmpeg.exe -i test.mpg -acodec copy test.avi
The same command in Mint 7, or windows, results in a file that plays correctly. Comparing an output file from Mint 6 or Mint 7 using Gspot I don't see any difference in the file information.
I think I've updated all the packages that relate to ffmpeg but still doesn't work. I really don't want to upgrade to Mint 7 on this computer just to get ffmpeg working. Any suggestion on how to get this working under 6?
