consider an input stream play with a streamer.
This stream is encoded with the "H264 - Mpeg-4 AVC (part 10) (h264)" codec.
I launch this command :

mencoder udp:// -o copy_out.avi -nosound -ovc copy

What did I except ? That the file copy_out.avi contains the same stream as the input encapsulated in an AVI contener. However, copy_out.avi can't be read neither in VLC, neither in VirtualDub. The codec is said to be unknown, it is not egals to "H264 - Mpeg-4 AVC (part 10) (h264)"
