I have a sample.mp4 which is currently not playable on VLC or media player and I've checked the FFmpeg values and get the below result? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • It would help if you would post your ffmpeg command. Preferably as text. Nov 12 '20 at 19:02
  • Apologies. it was just ffmpeg -i sample.mp4 Nov 13 '20 at 13:44

It is all about the proprietary codec, i.e. IMM5. The VLC and FFMPEG can't deal with it except patching the avcodec manually using https://patchwork.ffmpeg.org/project/ffmpeg/patch/20190716170703.10960-1-onemda@gmail.com/. Of course, you need to re-compile the ffmpeg using the IMM5 supported avcodec lib.

Good luck.
