I've am using the Window compiled version of ffmpeg found here: 

The Sep 29 version is now giving errors when reading my huffyuv encoded 
avis that previous versions worked with. This is what ffmpeg is outputting:

The Sep 10 version was able to read huffyuv but the colours came out 
wrong, suggesting it was getting the u and v channels mixed up.

Eariler versions I used worked well.

The files where originally captured with VirtualDub.
