Changing the codec for those incompatible videos in your presentation
If you want to change your codec, here's your command (again using ffmpeg):
ffmpeg -i inVideo -f avi -vcodec mpeg4 -b 800 -g 300 -bf 2 -acodec mp3 -ab 128 videoMpeg4.avi
This line forces the avi format (-f avi), uses mpeg-4 as the encoding standard (-vcodec mpeg4), sets a bitrate of 800kbps (-b 800), sizes GOP in 300, so it makes DivX compatible (-g 300), etc. Replace inVideo with your video name, and you're done.
