 I have downloaded a video from itunes. The video has .m4v extension and
 according to MediaVideo is in some type of AVC/AAC format. Nor VLC neither
 Windows Media PLayer can play that video. The only one that can play the
 video and do it correctly is QuickTime 7 from Apple.

 I want to convert it into MPEG2 as video and mp3 as audio, but i have
 failed both with FFMPEG and with MEncoder. I have also tried to compile
 ffmpeg from source, but I do not know which codec I need and I don't want
 to compile all the codecs from scratch.

 I have uploaded the video on your FTP server. THe filename is  "Love Thy
 Brother.m4v". There IS the correspondending text file.

 I attach here:
 1) Mediainfo informations given on the video
 2) ffmpeg command line
 3) full FFMPEG console output
