Comment (by Đonny):

 Ticket #3616 has been marked as duplicate to this one.
 I'm not sure if the nature of these two tickets is same. I realized that
 if I have file (see http://docs.voanews.eu/en-US-TEST-
 LTR/2014/05/06/f35d1270-fa55-4f82-aefc-e3db136aa395.avi). and run ffprobe
 on it (without any additional parameters)
 ffprobe xxx.xxx
 the results are different depending on extension of the file (at least on
 * When xxx.avi - the file is mistedtedted as avi
 [avi @ 0000000002a44920] Format avi detected only with low score of 1,
 misdetection possible!
 MJPEG.avi: Invalid data found when processing input
 * When xxx (w/o extension)
 MJPEG.xxx: Invalid data found when processing input
 * When xxx.mjpeg it works fine
 I guess it is caused by ffmpeg not being able to recognize that the file
 is MJPEG format.
