    Consider increasing the value for the 'analyzeduration' and 'probesize' options
    /path/to/video.mp4: could not find codec parameters
How to solve:

Adjust -probesize and/or -analyzeduration.

The files I was testing were in fact damaged. But if anyone faces this problem, setting -probesize and -analyzeduration to 100 and 10000000 for example might help.

From a popular comment by @DiverseAndRemote.com

my solution was

ffmpeg -analyzeduration 2147483647 -probesize 2147483647 -i /path/to/video.mp4 

2147483647 is max_int
