Description (last modified by cehoyos)

Summary of the bug:
How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -i /tmp/test.y4m -f h261 -vb 256k -trellis 2 /tmp/test.h261
ffmpeg version N-58112-g5592d1b Copyright (c) 2000-2013 the FFmpeg developers
  built on Nov 15 2013 18:16:18 with gcc 4.8 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.8.1-10ubuntu8)

There's some revived interest in H.261 as possible guaranteed-patent-free baseline codec for videocommunication. While ffmpeg's H.261 usually works fine, it does not work with advanced techniques such as trellis quantization (or most rate/distortion options, for that matter). This is about trellis.

It would be awesome if some of the cool advanced encoder features that are available for MPEG-1 (e.g., trellis) would also work for H.261. Think "pig with rockets attached". If this is not possible the encoder at least should not crash.

Is this reproducible with -f lavfi -i testsrc (or tests/lena.pnm) as input or does it need a specific file to reproduce the crash?
Could you test a very old version (0.5 or 0.7)?

comment:2 Changed 6 years ago by cehoyos

  • Component changed from undetermined to avcodec
  • Description modified (diff)
  • Keywords crash SIGSEGV added; crasher removed

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by maikmerten

I'm testing with uncompressed test sequences stored in YUV4MPEG format. Suitable input is e.g.

http://media.xiph.org/video/derf/y4m/mad900_cif.y4m (this sequence is so totally 90ies).

Will try to test an old version.

Version 0.5.13 behaves in a similar way, crashes at the same statement in the corresponding file.
