Removing the attachement and uploading the file at some ftp server.

Hello All,

I am not sure if this belong to ffmpeg-user. I am getting the error on
executing ffmpeg -i Test.avi Test.flv on the
 attached file. Here is the ffmpeg output. I have uploaded the file at:

swScaler: Unknown format is not supported as input pixel format
Cannot get resampling context

I have searched this mailing list and it seems like swScalar does not

Thanks & Regards,
