Yes it does.  But all that tells me is that the file isn't corrupt.

As far as whether it's in an AVI container or not, I suspect not because I had to use the option to direct stream the data to file without any transcoding, so I doubt it's even creating a container.  But I'll have to check that later.  In the meantime it's probably time to investigate using those parameter switches -video_size, -framerate etc. - thanks for that tip, Moritz.

Because the uncompressed format is so big that might be difficult: even the "short" sample is ~1 GB.  Where should I upload it?
