We use ffmpeg during a Command Line workflow, but on one PCs we get the following fatal error from ffmpeg when reading a myuv200 avi file:-

Could not find codec parameters for stream 0 (Video: none (M8RG / 0x4752384D), none, 1920x1080, 447383 kb/s): unknown codec

Tried it on another PC it works fine? Any ideas as to the solution?

I'm not involved with the ffmpeg implementation of the codec, but I would assume that PC has a different version of ffmpeg installed, so that's the first I would check.

If that doesn't help you could send me the file (by uploading somewhere) and I can take a quick look.

OK, found the problem.

On this PC, another application (ImageMagick) had installed it's own localised version of ffmpeg in it's own program directory, and then added that directory to the System Path. That version must have been a more restricted version without the appropriate libraries. Deleted it, and now the PC finds the original ffmpeg application and it works fine... Issue closed.
