I wish to include embedded cover art when converting an mp3 file to mkv (vorbis).
ffmpeg -i input.mp3 output.mkv
will render a file that does play (in mpv) showing an image but the moment I try to seek strange things start to happen.
... Stream #0:0: Audio: mp3, 44100 Hz, stereo, fltp, 160 kb/s Stream #0:1: Video: mjpeg (Progressive), yuvj444p(pc, bt470bg/unknown/unknown), 600x595 [SAR 1:1 DAR 120:119], 90k tbr, 90k tbn, 90k tbc (attached pic) Metadata: title : cover.jpg comment : Cover (front)
... Stream #0:0: Video: h264, none(pc, progressive), 600x595, SAR 1:1 DAR 120:119, 1k tbr, 1k tbn, 2k tbc (default) ... Stream #0:1: Audio: vorbis, 44100 Hz, stereo, fltp (default)
Apparently ffmpeg converts the image to h264 which is not what I want, I want an embedded picture.
How can I tell ffmpeg to just copy the embedded picture instead of converting it to h264?
