    Question How to convert mp4 to mov like the example video


    I would like to know if this file has some encoding magic on it.
    I'm using ffmpeg to convert mp4 files to mov files for android streaming using this command :

    ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -acodec copy -vcodec copy -f mov

    But when streaming in RTSP with my Android 4.1.1 cannot make seek for unbuffered video parts. I'm sure its something with my encoding because if i use the sample video of this page in my server ( I surely can seek.

    There is something I'm missing to make this work?


    Update :

    Using this command in ffmpeg ver 0.9+ seems to work, we need to set video profile as baseline :

    ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -c:v libx264 -preset fast -profile:v baseline

    Any other parameter that needs to be set?

    Try something like this:

    ffmpeg -i Butterfly_HD_1080p.mp4 -s 212x120 -y -strict experimental -acodec aac -ab 96k -ac 2 -ar 48000 -vcodec libx264 -vprofile baseline -g 48 -b 85000 -level 30 -threads 64 butterfly_175k.mp4
