FFMpeg and WMV conversion


Just a quick blog entry. When converting video files (avi, mpg, etc) to WMV to play on Windows or XBOX, you will need to make sure that the correct audio encoding (wmav2) is used. If not the video file will not play and you will probably get an error.


You can use the –acodec wmav2 switch in ffmpeg command parameter to enforce to correct audio encoding for WMV files.
