I now want to show an html5 video on a html page.

Now I have an sample.swf file, I want to convert it to .mp4 or .ogg or .webm file.

I have tried: ffmpeg -i sample.swf sample.mp4

But I got this error:

[swf @ 0000000001feef40] Could not find codec parameters for stream 0 (Audio: pcm_s16le, 5512 Hz, 1 channels, 88 kb/s): unspecified sample format
