Note that both avi and mkv are not codecs -- they are merely containers that
can contain essentially any codec, no matter how obscure:


For triage, it would help to know:
- if an container holding one of the known working codecs works
- if an container doesnt work, if the codec works outside of the container (say
  as mpeg4).
