Description

Summary of the bug: concat fails when splicing two videos of different codecs

Create a file (clips.txt) with following 2 lines:

file 'movie1.mov'
file 'movie2.avi'

After the command below, watch resulting video after the splice.

ffmpeg -f concat -i clips.txt -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -crf 24 -pix_fmt yuv420p -s 1920x1080 -aspect 16:9 -acodec aac -strict experimental -b:a 128k -ar 44100 -ac 2 Final.mov

  • Component changed from ffmpeg to undetermined
  • Keywords demuxer splice codecs removed
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

FFmpeg does not even support VC-1 and WMV3 (two very similar codecs) in the same stream, see ticket #655. Supporting two very different codecs (like ASP and AVC) in one video stream seems impossible.

Please use the concat filter.
