what is mpv?
with this:
C:\libav-win32-20131121\usr\bin\avconv.exe  -i sintel.mpg -c copy

mplayer is able to play video, but no audio.

if it's sintel.2.5.mpg it was a rip from a DVD.  Mencoder possibly, or
mplayer -dumpstream.

Thanks for your help in this.  According to the discussion on the

MPEG sequence, v1, system multiplex

which most players don't expect to have any advanced things in it?
thank you.
