Try updating the file in the db so that has_video is 1.

Tried that, didn’t work. Can’t even get ffmpeg to include the video if I run it manually in the shell

[celia.pts/5]$ ffmpeg -y -i "/share/Movies/tmp/Filename (avi-avi).avi" -f wav /tmp/y

This is latest SVN version of ffmpeg built this weekend.

I’ve also tried to transcode it to MOV and ASF (with following params: ‘-vcodec msmpeg4 -acodec libmp3lame’). But in both cases, iTunes ‘hangs up’ for some reason (because it doesn’t understand the format?).

I’m starting to wonder if it’s something wrong with my ffmpeg installation. I’ve been fiddeling with this all weekend, hacking the script and etc, but I just can’t get it to include the video. I’ve asked on the ffmpeg list, but so far no answer.
