I have a bunch of DV streams that were imported from a DV camcorder using iMovie.
avconv nor VLC seem to be capable of converting these files correctly, whereas QuickTime works just fine on "OS X".
As I would like to convert these files with
avconv on Linux (no, using QuickTime is not an option), I wonder if I need to provide
avconv with some extra options so that it understands iMovie's version of the DV format (or whatever is causing these peculiarities). I've googled but that didn't help.
Any ideas how I can make this work? Here's an example output from
avconv -i FILENAME:
