[FFmpeg-user] mjpeg decoding problem

I am streaming MJPEG stream from an IP camera over RTSP. The stream runs fine in VLC but when I try to stream with FFMPEG, it gives following error:

"mjpeg: unsupported coding type"

I am using following command to record a video from the camera:

ffmpeg -i rtsp:// -vcodec mjpeg sample.avi 

Can anyone please tell me the solution of this issue? I have spent many days to resolve it, but to no avail. I will really appreciate any help in this regard.
