Ah, I see. What happens if you rename it to .flv or .mpeg ?

It doesn't matter, xine is clever enough to ignore the name or extension.

Notice that on a flash file that works, "file" says: "Macromedia Flash Video". On this one, it says "Macromedia Flash data, version 6", which is different. It might be informative to try the same with files from other sites that do work and compare.

(You can get the file from the browser cache)
Fair enough. What if you force the encoder to treat it as mpeg2? I think you can do that with -vf options.
I guess I'll have to try it myself :-)
