[mythtv-users] ffmpeg errors

Hi list,

I record programs from USB DVB-T tuners.

I like to archive them by re-encoding them with ffmpeg 
(libx264/matroska/libfaac). This works really well for 99% of recordings 
but occasionally I get one that just won't play ball. It give's lots of 
messages when encoding which I don't understand. The result is that I 
can't finish the encode. I've attached a sample of the messages.

I've tried re-encoding to mpeg2/mp2 (the format of the original videos) 
and a pile of other formats in order to get my final encode to run 
correctly, but the result is either another failure, or a massively 
inflated filesize (the mpeg4/avi won't let me set the bitrate so runs at 
8x what I want).

Has anyone got any ideas what I can do to get these files into shape? I 
can supply the options for my final encode to x264 if necessary.
