I unsuccessfully tried to convert an mp4 file to m2ts using ffmpeg with the following command:
The process started OK, but it fell over quickly. Error message as follows:
I was not trying to transcode; the HDR-FOX would probably struggle in this task. I just wanted to change the container to allow the creation of sidecar files. Would a later version of ffmpeg work? The custom firmware ffmpeg version is 0.10. I know that version 2.1.4 used to be available as a test package, but the link has gone now. The latest version of ffmpeg is 2.6.2: presumably this would have to be compiled to run on MIPS? @af123: please could you make version 2.1.4 available again so I can test it.
ffmpeg -i Test.mp4 -vcodec copy -acodec copy Test.m2ts
