Description Matej Cepl 2008-12-27 06:46:12 UTC
Fedora 10 fully updated and when playing .avi file from mencoder with gst-launch playbin I get 

"Message: don't know how to handle video/x-avi-unknown, fourcc=(fourcc)0x10000002"

The file is whole movie, so only first 999kB (cut with head) are on 
http://disk.jabbim.cz/mcepl@ceplovi.cz/head.avi

The file is originally from DVB-T caught with -dumpstream and then repackaged into .avi with

mencoder -ovc copy -oac copy -o nejvetsi-vecernicek-na-svete.avi huge.dump

and then I run

mencoder -ss 3:00:15 -endpos 1:36:40 -forceidx -o neverland.avi -oac copy -ovc copy nejvetsi-vecernicek-na-svete.avi 

to get my movie.

This is the information I get from ffplay:

The file works perfectly in mplayer but only sound (no video) in totem (or gst-launch playbin).
