Every few weeks, there's a question at one of the SE sites about a file
that does not convert as expected with ffmpeg. Most of the time, VLC or
Potplayer (Win player that I use) plays these files without a hitch. Many
of these tend to be from surveillance cameras or similar niche
applications. When I come across these in the future, I'll open tickets.
