thank you, i am also sure ffmpeg use libavformat to find the correct codec
to decode it.
Is is possible for Mplayer to support MPEG4-ES decoding, as i know,
mpeg4 is the same mpeg1/mpeg2 bitstream, they don't need globe header,
we can decode mpeg1/2 bitstream start from anywhere in the bitstream, it
next frame start code and start to decode it.
Why Mplayer can play a MPEG2 elementary stream, but can't play a MPEG4
elementary stream?? If at this time, Mplayer can't decode a MPEG4-ES, we can
patches to it. But i must know is it true first??

and if i use ffmpeg to convert the mpeg4-ES into avi, ffmpeg will decode it
encode it again with avi header .
(command:--> ffmpeg -i movie.m4v movie.avi) of course, this command works
But it is waste time and video quallity will be degraded!
someone tell me to use
---> ffmpeg -i movie.m4v -vcodec copy movie.avi
but using this command, it can't played correctly using mplayer, even ffmpeg
decode the copyed movie.avi correclty. It's strange!! I think the avi
header and because
chunk length is fixed to 2048.
I have asked this in ffmpeg, but it seems no one answer.
other command usage ??
