No. This isn't about what you belief. Before you can expect ffmpeg or all 
popular players to play your files do you have to provide the correct input 
files and options to ffmpeg. That's a fact and it's how ffmpeg works. Once you 
get this right will ffmpeg be your best friend and will produce the files you 
need, but not before then.
