The ( very simple and basic ) commands I used are stated on the web
page I linked to.
None of those simple basic commands *fail* with an error of any kind.
I they had, then
you would had got the 'offending' output quoted, here.  Howeveer, the
resulting .webm as
produced using ffmpeg has obvoously 'changed' in some way from the
original, else it
would play, and we wouldn't be having this exchange,

I assume nothing.  I expect nothing.  I'm not 'everybody'.  I don't
use IE  by default.
However, I am investigatbg a behaviour, and would like to locate the
source of the
problem, be that the encoding library or the program implementing it.  Hence my

IE does, for better or worse, play webm files when the correct bits
are in place to help
it along. The link I gave shows that.  Sames goes for some other
browsers, when they
are sutably tweaked.

Should I infer from your message that you consider ffmpeg not to be
'at fault', just because
the command does not throw an error during conversion?
