mpegplayer for rockbox plays videos converted from flash (flv) at around twice the normal rate. Rockbox was run on a Sansa e200, but others with iPods have the same problem. Problem persists with different converters (ffmpeg being the main on used), and attempted to convert to other formats before mpg.
This task depends upon

I have no problem with converted FLVs.

What is the audio bitrate, format, sample rate, and video resolution, framerate and bitrate, and for what player are you converting?

I am converting for a sansa e200, ffmpeg claimed 200 some for the bitrate, but looking at it from xine's properties it says its 0. I've uploaded a video that is not working,

I just experienced mplayer/mencoder being unable to accurately determine the framerate of an .flv file. Try forcing the input-framerate to whatever the video is (mine was "25.4419262591209" according to flvtool2) - that did the trick for me.

Would it make sense to add this information to the wiki and close this task, as it apppears to be a problem with the encoders and not with Rockbox?
