debugging ffmpeg

Unread post by elvosparsley » 26 Sep 2017, 09:47

Running 6.1 on a Synology. Using the default transcoding settings.

I'm having trouble transcoding mp4 and avi files using the supplied ffmpeg, they simply won't load with just the 3 dots showing. My MP3 and WMA files play fine.

If I try the Synology Community ffmpeg, the videos load straight away, but there's no sound. My MP3 and WMA files don't play either.

How can I set ffmpeg to output to a log so I can see what's going on?

If I try a straight transcode to flv in windows, just using the -i flag it works, though not the same build of ffmpeg, so it must be something to do with builds but I'm scratching my head here!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
