Default Unable to play certain .flv files

So I have a bunch of .VOB (.mpeg) files, which were generated by a vcr->dvd recorder (so there is no CSS involved). I had a batch of 10 files, and 4 of them can't be played back by FMS after converting them with the Adobe Flash CS3 Video Encoder (they were all encoded at the same time, and have tried multiple times).

The files in question play back in VLC just fine, Gspot doesn't seem to show any differences either. I am running the latest development version of FMS 3.

The Application Event Log shows the following error each time I try to play one of these 'bad' files:
Error from libflv.dll: File contains bad data : C:\Documents and Settings\etron\Desktop\_video_\file01.flv (TCFLVData.cpp:1786).
One thing I did notice is that the Video Encoder software won't let me adjust the timeline (i.e. if I only want to process the first 60 seconds), but it does show the preview frame without errors.

I have tried other encoders such as SUPER, VLC, etc., and I don't have any issues with those files, but they don't support On2 VP6, so I assume the issue is with the CS3 Flash Video encoder.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this, or how I can work around this? Thanks!
