Description

Summary of the bug: Ffmpeg says that a video is longer than it actually is.
How to reproduce:

  1. Download https://saveyoutube.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DeRsGyueVLvQ as a 480p webm (named cliff.webm)
  2. Enter the following console commands and observe output
    $ ffmpeg -y -i cliff.webm -threads 8 -f webm -vcodec libvpx -g 120 -level 216 -profile 0 -qmax 42 -qmin 10 -rc_buf_aggressivity 0.95 -b:v 2M -acodec libvorbis -aq 70 -ac 2 transcoded.webm

    Output file is empty, nothing was encoded (check -ss / -t / -frames parameters if used)
    

Observed: Although ffmpeg indicates that the file is 16.09 seconds long, it cannot get a thumbnail 16 seconds into the file.

Expected: Duration displays correctly, so that the thumbnail command works with any number less than the stated duration.

Notes: burek on IRC confirmed that this is a bug. Something seems to be wrong with the way saveyoutube's webm files are done (maybe youtube's), but that should get fixed on transcode. The transcoding confirms that the file is actually only 14.94 seconds long, however the duration is still displayed wrong in the newly transcoded file (observe the second command above).

In my particular use case, I need to be able to get the duration of the video after transcoding it. My current work-around is to scrape the "time=" value while transcoding, but this is not ideal. Ideally after transcoding, I could use ffmpeg or ffprobe to get the correct duration, without needing to remember it from the transcode; a duration can be displayed by these efficiently (without reading the whole file), but this duration is not correct.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Retesting with current ffmpeg, it reports duration as 15.07 so some other fix seems to have fixed this as well

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by Squerp

  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

I just updated to the static build at http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/source/ffmpeg/ffmpeg-git-633b90c.tar.xz (from 8/10/12), and performed the repro steps again. The log is essentially the same as before, with the post-transcoded duration reported at >16 seconds, which appears to still be a bug. Can you provide logs from the fixed version and details on the version in which it is fixed?

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

  • Component changed from undetermined to avformat
  • Keywords duration added; Duration webm transcoding removed
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from reopened to closed
  • Version changed from unspecified to git-master

Fixed by Thierry Foucu in 98cbbab - not reproducible with 1.1 and 1.2.
