I installed ffmpeg Windows/64 today, and tried

Code: Select all

ffmpeg -i file.mov file.mp4
Input file is https://archive.org/download/NASA-Ultra ... 20View.mov
About 6GB, 90 seconds, 4K.
VLC can convert the file (much slower) to MP4 successfully.

For reference: ffmpeg version N-93077-g075fd5ba45 Copyright (c) 2000-2019 the FFmpeg developers built with gcc 8.2.1 (GCC) 20181201
