#2160 closed defect (duplicate)

ffmpeg produces mpeg files with audio not playable by some players

Reported by: kadmandux Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: avformat
Version: unspecified Keywords: mpegps
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:

I'm joining (concat) some mpeg2 video files with ac3 audio (from my digital camera) without re-encoding. The resulting files have no sound if you play them with mplayer or HP Video (from HP Media Suite).

Mplayer says this:
MPEG: No audio stream found -> no sound.

How to reproduce:

ffmpeg -f concat -i list.txt -c:a copy -c:v copy video.mpg

Even more simple, without concat involved:

ffmpeg -i input.mpg -c:a copy -c:v copy video.mpg

I solved the problem with the workaround listed here:

The key is to ask for a target format:

ffmpeg -i input.mpg -target pal-dvd  -c:a copy -c:v copy video.mpg

The input files have contents like this:

Input #0, mpeg, from 'm2u00117.mpg':
  Duration: 00:01:26.36, start: 0.118222, bitrate: 7858 kb/s
    Stream #0:0[0x1e0]: Video: mpeg2video (Main), yuv420p, 720x576 [SAR 64:45 DA
R 16:9], 25 fps, 25 tbr, 90k tbn, 50 tbc
    Stream #0:1[0x80]: Audio: ac3, 48000 Hz, stereo, fltp, 256 kb/s

  • Component changed from undetermined to avformat
  • Keywords mpegps added; audio interleave removed
  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

Apart from missing complete, uncut console output, this looks like a duplicate of ticket #1720. Please test again once that ticket is resolved.

Replying to cehoyos:

Thank you. Sorry for duplicate report, I found ticket #1720 after I sent mine.

I posted there a comment, because I found a workaround for which there is a link in my ticket.
