You could try -demuxer mov

You will probably need to have (a recent version of) Xcode installed.

Well, I do have my all-in-one package (well, for those who already have
MinGW installed) here:
but the problem is that rebuilding it is too painful so it is quite
out-dated (it works for MPlayer, but may have security issues), so I
can't fully recommend it - it also does not included the MinGW fixes
necessary to work right with files > 2GB.
This: http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php should be rather complete
and up-to-date though but it's still a lot of stuff.
