no, copy is for the audio. With an FLV file, the audio is mp3, so this option means that the audio stream is just mapped to the new mpeg video stream instead of having to decode and reencode it.
and sorry, i should have put the error message, don't know what i was thinking.

ffmpeg: unrecognized option '-b'
so it's the option that's not working. i just thought maybe somebody here had seen about it. i found a couple of people saying they had also had this problem on the web, but haven't found any answer to it yet.
