I also thought like that. But mplayer does not play these .m2v files.
file gives me the following output :
rajesh at debian:/mnt/data/Music_Videos$ file Blank\ and\ jones\ -\ DJ\ Culture\ \(SVCD\).m2v
Blank and jones - DJ Culture (SVCD).m2v: MPEG system stream data
However videolan client plays this file without any problems. Arpi, is it
possible to play this file using mplayer ? What I will have to do ?
This is the output of mplayer :
