[mythtv-users] ffmpeg convert an ISO to view on PSP - "could not find codec parameters"

I use ffmpeg to convert my recording to the PSP.

When I attempt to run ffmpeg on an ISO image from a DVD I get:
"could not find codec parameters"

Just trying to figure out:
1.  How I can figure what codec is required
2.  How I can install whatever that missing codec is

I am running in Ubuntu Edgy.
ffmpeg is very recent (within a month) and compiled on my own machine.

Here is the full output:

Executing ffmpeg command

ffmpeg -i "/myth_extras/videos/Burn/my_video.ISO" -y -acodec aac -ab 96
-vcodec h264 -b 280kb -ar 48000 -mbd 2 -coder 1 -cmp 2 -subcmp 2 -s 480x272
-r 30000/1001 -f psp -flags loop -trellis 2 -partitions
parti4x4+parti8x8+partp4x4+partp8x8+partb8x8 -level 13 -vol 480
