I'm trying to convert an .mp4 file to .mov file.

The command is as below.

avconv -i test1.mp4 kkk.mov

.mov file is created but there is an error opening the file. Below is the error.

"Stream contains no data"

I tried using ffmpeg as well. But, that didn't work too. Anyways, as ffmpeg seems to be not in maintenance anymore, I would prefer to go with avconv.

Please suggest a solution.


I found the solution.

The correct command is

avconv -i test1.mp4 -strict experimental kkk.mov

If we don't add -strict experimental, the conversion is not properly done.

The same can be used for ffmpeg.
