Dear All,

Following are the mplayer and ffmpeg outputs of a troublesome MOV file. 
I searched a bit and saw --enable-decoder=dvhp option in forums for 
ffmpeg configuration but I don't think it changes anything since it does 
not show up in the enabled decoders list. Maybe I didn't do it properly.

Does anyone have an idea how I can play/transcode this video using 


 > mplayer roughcap.mov
