I am trying to convert a .mov to an uncompressed .avi with ffmpeg. As I want no quality loss, I am using the following ffmpeg command:
ffmpeg -i toto.mov -vcodec copy -y toto.avi
The convertion works perfectly (the video works in VLC) except that when I am opening the file with virtualdub I get a black screen.
In VirtualDub, under file information I get the following:
Frame size: 800x600, 30.000fps Length: 802 frames Decompressor: Internal DIB decoder
If I am not specifying the -pix_fmt and -vcodec arguments, ffmpeg convert to mpeg-4 and yuv420p but I am loosing on the quality as my file shrunk to about 400Mo to 1Mo but the video works in virtualdub and this time the Decompressor is set to ffdshow Video Codec (FMP4). I doubt this is a ffdshow as I had another video working perfectly with the internal DIB decoder.
Any idea, to get the image in virtualdub?
