image2pipe looses synch with a pipe of PBM images

Reported by: pisto Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: avcodec
Version: git-master Keywords: image2pipe pbm parser
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: yes
Analyzed by developer: no


After some frames (2000), ffmpeg outputs an error (Error while decoding stream #0:0), and goes on encoding, but subsequent output frames contain pieces of adjacent input frames, as if ffmpeg had lost track of the correct beginning of an image. The attached file is my input. Command line is

ffmpeg -f image2pipe -vcodec pbm -r 30 -i - -vcodec libx264 -threads 2 -preset medium -crf 24 -y output.mkv

I ran other tests. It fails when I input more than exactly 1989 frames. Since each PBM that I stream is 80011 bytes long, that means that it fails somewhere while reading bytes from 159141879 to 159221890

Is libx264 required to reproduce the problem? If not, please use an internal encoder to report problems.

Please provide complete, uncut console output.
