Also, for H.264, ffmpeg seems to set video type = 0x0000. I'm pretty 
sure that's wrong too. In fact, it might be one of the major reasons the 
PS3 wont recognize the video, come to think of it.

(Or, it's just some wrong info ffmpeg displays on the screen only. I'm 
not sure if 0x0000 actually goes into the file anywhere)
