Any GUI's that can encode .ismv files?

I've purchased a video file off the new BBC site which is in .ismv container and I was wondering if there is any way to reencode it with x264 so I can watch it on my TV?

I use Staxrip but that just sees the video as a scambled mess!

Ive searched but can hardly find anything on .ismv files.

Heres what Mediainfo says about the video:

Code:

Looks like a flavor of MP4 (MPEG-4 Part 14) container, with H.264/AVC video.

Have you tried Avisynth with the FFMS2 source filter? If that works, you can use pretty much any x264 or x265 GUI that you like (they all support Avisynth input).

Otherwise, you can try with FFmpeg directly - with your preferred FFmpeg GUI, if you don't like the command-line.

Thanks for your help LoRd_MuldeR, looks like a DRM issue as to why they cant be reencoded!
