That file is somewhat invalid. The PMT gives a stream type of 0x10
for the video. This means an MPEG4 elementary stream carried in PES
packets. These PES packets must have a stream_id value in the range
0xe0 to 0xef. Your file uses a stream_id of 0xfa. This should be
used only for SL-packetized streams, which your file is not. FFmpeg
ignores streams with invalid stream_id in the PES header, whereas
mplayer and vlc apparently do not.
Disabling the stream_id check doesn't really help immediately either.
Instead, it gives these messages:
[NULL @ 0x83d7a34]hmm, seems the headers are not complete, trying to guess time_increment_bits
[NULL @ 0x83d7a34]my guess is 2 bits ;)
[mpeg4 @ 0x83d7a34]looks like this file was encoded with (divx4/(old)xvid/opendivx) -> forcing low_delay flag
[mpeg4 @ 0x83d7a34]picture size invalid (0x0)
[mpeg4 @ 0x83d7a34]get_buffer() failed (-1 0 0 (nil))
[NULL @ 0x83d7a34]Error, header damaged or not MPEG4 header (f_code=0)
[mpeg4 @ 0x83d7a34]hmm, seems the headers are not complete, trying to guess time_increment_bits
[mpeg4 @ 0x83d7a34]my guess is 2 bits ;)
[mpeg4 @ 0x83d7a34]Error, header damaged or not MPEG4 header (qscale=0)
[mpeg4 @ 0x83d7a34]header damaged
I'm not really sure what sort of confusion will result in such
messages. I suppose it's related to the file not starting with a key
frame, or not even at a frame boundary.
