This limitation extends to all applications which use ffmpeg in ubuntu right now for conversion (Including winff, avidemux etc.) Handbrake will work right now because they have their own custom compiled version of ffmpeg included which has support for these formats compiled in. Also barring ffmpeg as the backend, mencoder works just fine handling these files so any frontend which uses mencoder as the backend will work just fine. I believe that this issue is only pertinent to Ubuntu and derivatives at the moment, and a custom compilation of ffmpeg will correct the issue.

    These will remove the incorrectly downloaded package and reset your apt database. Now issue the following command to update your database:
