Update: I am able to play some ogv, mp4 and webm files using ffplay but not other web, mp4 and ogv files. When I try and play those files I get got invalid data found when processing input when using some mp4 and ogv file types.

I was able to convert a file using the ffmpeg file.webm -i file.mp4 command, but doing a conversion using the the video field is coming up with the following error. I am currently making preset changes to see if the error goes away.

Fmpeg failed to transcode test upload.mp4.
Reported errors

PHPVideoToolkit error: Execute error. It was not possible to encode "D:\xampp\htdocs\drupal7\exercises\videos\original\test upload_2.mp4" as FFmpeg returned an error. Note, however the error was encountered on the second pass of the encoding process and the first pass appear to go fine. The error is with the video codec of the input file. FFmpeg reports the error to be "Error while opening encoder for output stream #0:0 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height".
