Creating video that can be played in Windows 7

“The video you have sent me does not work.”

  • Matroska file format is not supported.
  • H.264 video is supported, but not with the default yuvj422p color format.
  • MP3 sound is supported, but the sample rate 22050 S/s (and probably others) is not supported.

Suggested solutions:

  • Convince your client to use a better operating system.
  • Convince your client to install video player with non-Microsoft codecs.
  • Use the following avconv command line.
avconv -i infile -ar 48000 -acodec libmp3lame -pix_fmt yuv420p -y outfile.mp4
