yah, looks like ffmpeg pooped out in the final "stapling"
of the audio + video portions.

you could try one more derive to see if it's a repeatable
error (i suspect it is -- ffmpeg is more picky than mplayer)
or works. if error repeats, we prolly cannot generate a
mpeg1 at this time for that movie for some reason (that i suspect is not related to the mplayer audio extraction -- might be something in the video or video header...)

The problem seems to be that the uploaded mpeg2 file does not have an audio track so the final step fails. My guess is the uploader stripped the audio because of copyright.
