Description

Ubuntu 13.10, 64-bit.

I have a mp4 movie file and .srt sub-titles file in Kannada language. My intention is to merge them into an output mp4 file that could be then burnt to a DVD. The output mp4 file does show the sub-titles but the rendering is wrong. That is, the conjugation of vowels and consonants are not rendered the way as seen in the sub-titles file.

To transcode mp4 and srt files into mp4 file, I ran this command as described here.

./ffmpeg -y -i movie.mp4 -vf subtitles=kn.srt movie_kn.mp4

The console output of running this command is shown below.

user@dabba:~/expt$ ./ffmpeg -y -i movie.mp4 -vf subtitles=kn.srt -codec:v libx264 -crf 23 -preset medium -codec:a copy movie_kn.mp4

While following up on this error, I was asked a couple of questions and came across couple of hints too. I am mentioning them here just so that some of the possibilities are 'covered'.

The .srt file is utf-8.

user@dabba:~/expt$ file -i kn.srt
kn.srt: text/plain; charset=utf-8

The file is correctly rendered in gEdit even after selecting language specific font type, Lohit Kannada. This font is available.

user@dabba:~/expt$ fc-list | grep Kannada
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-kannada-fonts/lohit_kn.ttf: Lohit Kannada:style=Regular

The coverage of this font is complete.

user@dabba:~/expt$ fc-validate -l kan /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-kannada-fonts/lohit_kn.ttf 
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-kannada-fonts/lohit_kn.ttf:0 Satisfy the coverage for kan language
user@dabba:~/expt$ fc-validate -l kn /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-kannada-fonts/lohit_kn.ttf 
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-kannada-fonts/lohit_kn.ttf:0 Satisfy the coverage for kn language

The version of fontconfig is greater than 2.10.92. This version was considered to have a bug around reading fonts from memory and thereby, affecting rendering.

user@dabba:~/expt$ fc-list --version
fontconfig version 2.10.93

If you would like to test at your end, the video is on YouTube and the .srt has been attached here. I did not upload the file because of its size and because of the fact that it may mess up the synchronisation between the video and timestamps in the sub-titles file.

Thanks to FakeOutdoorsman? and SeijeiSensei? for helping me get this far.

Please let me know how to get around this problem. It would be terribly disappointing to abandon my non-profit work !

  • Component changed from FFmpeg to undetermined
  • Keywords sub srt added; subtitles India utf8 removed
  • Version changed from unspecified to git-master

Is the problem also reproducible with the following command line?

$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i color=s=1280x720 -vf subtitles=kn.srt -qscale 2 -vcodec mpeg4 out.mp4

Wild guess: you have to compile libass with harfbuzz support.

How come your command does not explicitly mention the input movie file name (with the -i switch) ?

The input file is around 20 MB and with command mentioned above, the size of the output file reached around 150MB and kept growing. I killed the process because it just didn't make sense. Nevertheless, I played this output file in smplayer and the rendering problem is still there.

The duration of the video is shown to be around 57 minutes ! This is simply not correct as the original video is around 12 minutes or so.

How come your command does not explicitly mention the input movie file name (with the -i switch) ?

The input is the color filter, its default colour is black.

The input file is around 20 MB and with command mentioned above, the size of the output file reached around 150MB and kept growing.

Sorry, I forgot to add -t to the command line

I killed the process because it just didn't make sense.

Pressing "q" should have been enough...

Nevertheless, I played this output file in smplayer and the rendering problem is still there.

Thank you for testing.

The duration of the video is shown to be around 57 minutes !

frame=86282 fps=169 q=2.0 Lsize=  131662kB time=00:57:31.28 bitrate= 312.5kbits/s    

You stopped the encoding after encoding time reached 57 minutes...

This is simply not correct as the original video is around 12 minutes or so.

The "original video" is not used.

So do you want me to rerun the test.? Or is it sufficient?

Replying to cehoyos:

Of course "Lohit Kannada" from original ticket. Does subtitle filter support font specification for SRT?

comment:9 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

I can now see the subtitles, which frames are wrong / how are they supposed to look like?

Replying to cehoyos:

It is wrong throughout !

For example, just scroll over to 2:31 of the video and compare with sub-title number 54 in the .srt file. The 'real' line numbers in the .srt would be 213 to 215.

I am unable to upload more attachments.

I hope you agree that the issue is difficult to reproduce for somebody who doesn't know the Kannada alphabet...

I tested the following and will attach the output. Does it allow to reproduce the issue? If yes, how is the output supposed to look like?

$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i color=s=hd720 -vf subtitles=kn.srt -ss 2 -vframes 1 out.jpg

It is supposed to look like this:

ಅನೇಕ ವೀಡಿಯೊಗಳ ಮೇಲೆ ಈಗ ನಾವು ಪ್ರತಿ ಅಂತರತಾರಾ ವಸ್ತುವಾಗಿದೆ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಮಾತಾಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ ಬಂದಿದೆ

We can simplify this as follows. I have attached a 'dummy' srt file that has just one word - ನಾಗೇಶ್ - my name in Kannada language. This srt is 1:10 long. This srt could be added to the raw video to see output and compared.

nagesh, why are you assuming most people's browsers can render this correctly?

And did you try compiling with harfbuzz yet?

I am not. That is why the first post in this ticket has an image uploaded. Anyway, I have uploaded an image format so that it is clearer.

And did you try compiling with harfbuzz yet?

I do not recall seeing an instruction in FFmpeg documentation that mentions the need for this compilation for Indian languages. Is it confirmed that harfbuzz is required ?

comment:17 Changed 5 years ago by gjdfgh

I do not recall seeing an instruction in FFmpeg documentation that mentions the need for this compilation for Indian languages.

Why would the FFmpeg documentation care about this? libass is a third-party library, and libass itself does indeed make clear that harfbuzz is required for scripts which require complex text layout.

Is it confirmed that harfbuzz is required ?

I don't know. Try it.

This is terrific news ! Many thanks !!

One last question. Were you required to do anything 'special' while compiling libass with harfbuzz ? The reason I am asking is, I would like to create an automated script so that the latest FFmpeg source can be easily compiled with a current version of libass and harfbuzz.

Yes, I had to install harfbuzz before compiling libass.

The reason I am asking is, I would like to create an automated script so that the latest FFmpeg source can be easily compiled with a current version of libass and harfbuzz.

I would suggest you get in touch with the various people who already provide such binaries.

Installation notes for libass with harfbuzz support

comment:22 Changed 5 years ago by nagesh

I am also able to confirm that, with harfbuzz support in libass, I am able to see the rendering correctly. I have attached my 'notes' when trying to add this support. These notes are an extension of the Ubuntu compilation guide in the wiki. Just in case, some one else is interested in replicating the same.

Once again, many thanks for your help !
