I am facing a problem while converting .flv videos using ffmpeg. The output file format also has an extension of .flv. This is my command:

ffmpeg -i 8617854d-77e1-4538-b7ea-2853bcb06ee2.flv -s 400x240 -vcodec flv -b 500k -r 18000000/642857 -ar 11025 -y out.flv

The error:

[buffer @ 0x23bf080] Changing frame properties on the fly is not supported

and this is the output message on the terminal:

Seems stream 0 codec frame rate differs from container frame rate: 28.00 (18000000/642857) -> 14.00 (18000000/1285714)

I am currently using a Debian system (Wheezy) with ffmpeg version 0.8.9-6:0.8.9-1.

Updated :
Updated current installation to 'git-2014-01-31-dd4237f' .
My main intention was to convert the video to fill up some gaps in the meta info like Video bitrate , Audio bitrate etc ., which seem to be missing from the file .The input file is a webcam recorded file (recording done through 'OpenTok') , which is causing the video to not play on a flash player like flowplayer . This is the complete output from the latest ffmpeg build :

Please include the complete ffmpeg console output, then select it and press ctrl+k instead of using backticks (`). –  LordNeckbeard Jan 30 '14 at 19:22

Can you please download a newer version? Yours is quite outdated and chances are that's a bug that's already fixed. However, the video should be encoded regardless. What's the output, or what is the actual problem? –  slhck Jan 30 '14 at 20:37
