Description

Summary of the bug: Muxing results in bigger file size than original file

How to reproduce: Created a Mux.bat file as below and put it in the Windows Send To folder. Right-clicked a TS file and selected Send To "Mux.bat" file.

The resulting file created is larger than the original. That shouldn't happen. I once had a 22.4GB file and after Muxing it was 1GB larger!

Please provide your command line, the complete, uncut console output and a small sample to make this a valid ticket.

comment:2 Changed 4 years ago by DavJames

Don't know what you mean by command line - what's the difference between that and the console output?

Sample is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mdpacs3iqnz9ztl/FFmpeg%20Sample.ts

Here's the cmd output:

MPG and MKV don't have this problem. Only TS.

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by AndyF

You may find that the software that recorded the sample has heavily reduced the PAT/PMT packets.

They do seem a lot lower than recordings I have and ISTR the recorder I use reduced them in the past, possibly a bit now, but not by as much, if at all, due to issues that arose from heavy reduction.

There are slight differences between the sample and the remux in the vid and audio streams, but most of the extra size is more PAT/PMT packets and it seems that one is duplicated with a different PID - I don't know if that is intentional for eg. compatibility, or is an issue.

Below is some output from a (rubbish) ts analyser I cobbled together ages ago. Apart from the dup the output from ffmpeg looks more like what I am user to seeing than the sample.

Looking again at some different recordings and whole mux samples it does seem that the 0x0000 and 0x1000 are abnormally high - perhaps 10x. The original sample does still look quite low.
