[FFmpeg-user] coding video for some old Sony

i have an old Sony Bravia which accepts only MPEG4 as video and MP3 as
audio. If i want to watch videos i do it with this command:

ffmpeg -i the_kingdom_of_dreams_and_madness.mp4 -b:v 1M -vcodec mpeg4 -vtag
xvid -acodec libmp3lame -q:a 2 the_kingdom_of_dreams_and_madness.avi

but for some reason some video do not play at all. some do.

is there a way that the input video could influence the output? I thought
that when i resample with ffmpeg to these basic codecs all will work...

Any hints?
