Super, does the job beautifully. All playback is through an nVidia 
Shield which I got recently. I've just downloaded ffmpeg/ffprobe/ffplay 
from the ffmpeg site, so I'll examine the files and the contents of the 
streams properly.

I prefer mp4 because I can tag the file, whereas ts won't allow that.

Hope you're well, anyway. Autumn has well and truly arrived here with 
some horrible wet weather, but I guess you wouldn't mind some rain after 
the horrendous heat in Southern Europe this summer.

Best wishes dear friend
