image of the log below is the text Hi I want to convert 264 footage files to .mp4. The problem is these files came with a player but unfortunately that player is not working on my pc, hence I thought of converting files to mp4 so I can play them in vlc. I tried using ffmpeg but it gives following error when I use ffprobe
