Today I tried using ffmpeg to convert a ‘.wmv’ file (a slideshow video) to FLV. The wmv was created using Windows photo story 3. The result was a video that seemed to be missing all of the image transitions (fading and zooming). My existing ffmpeg conversion process has worked fine for me for years for other video filetypes. I am wondering if this could be caused by ffmpeg being out of date (running 0.7, also wondering whether a newer version is installed on other servers where I could potentially request a move - I’m avoiding a manual install as I’ve seen that others have had install issues and my capabilities at the command line are not that advanced), or if I could improve the result by changing the command arguments.
I am using the command as follows:
ffmpeg -y -i infile.wmv -sameq -acodec libmp3lame -ar 22050 -f flv outfile.flv
Thanks in advance for any assistance
