I got a video which was playing on the sender's laptop. When I downloaded it and tried playing using VLC, the duration of the video was shown as 0.00 with no error popping up.
I tried a
file --mime-type filename.avi which gave the result as
mediainfo filename.avi and the result was only the full name and the size information as below
General Complete name : filename.avi File size : 617 MiB
file filename.avi gives an output as
I have installed
ubuntu-restricted-extras as well which doesn't help.
What could be the issue here? Is there any workaround for viewing this in VLC player? Or is there any player which I can try to play this video?
