 "What makes you think it is pcm_s16be?"

 Are you talking about the original or the copy?

 MediaInfo reports that the audio on the original is pcm_s16be.

 As I explained in the ticket, one would think that a literal copy would
 keep the original format. The documentation gives no indication that copy
 will change the format to AAC.

 Using -c:a pcm_s16be causes the script to fail.
