My dear matthieu,
There is of course always a chance that something might be broken on my end, but
the XP is fresh installed, the xvid codec is 1.1.0-beta2-04042005 and I am using
media player classic to play the results encoded with ffmpeg that is compiled
using mingw32 and msys1.0.
Now, whatever may be 'broken' on my side, the result of a recorded .mpg file
encoded to xvid will _not_ play because the fourcc is in small letters. Change
the fourcc and it plays fine. If I change the source code and recompile and
encode again, the result plays fine.
I have no problem changing the source code myself. I was posting here with a
feeble attempt to help the developers make their code more compatible for others
that may encounter the same problem.
