FFMPEG uses incorrect MACs when

Description

Summary of the bug:
FFMPEG uses incorrect MAC when the destination multicast address contains .255:

How to reproduce:

./ffmpeg  -re -i "udp://10.250.225.161:5010?fifo_size=1000000&overrun_nonfatal=1" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f mpegts "udp://239.7.255.1:5004"

TCPDUMP shows that a gateway VRRP MAC (00:00:5e:00:01:01 ) is used instead of Multicast MAC (should be 01:00:5e:07:ff:01 ):

[root@encoder VLC]# tcpdump -i eth0 -vvv -c 1 -e host 239.7.255.1
tcpdump: listening on eth0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 65535 bytes

Correction:

FMMPEG uses the gateway MAC instead of the Multicast MAC when

  • the server has multiple interfaces
  • the stream is forced through one of the interfaces using a static route:

[root@encoder /]# netstat -r
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface

workaround:

use route via the device not the gateway. I guess the ticket can be closed if that "as-designed" behavior

[root@encoder manpages]# ip route
10.250.225.160/27 dev eth0 proto kernel scope link src 10.250.225.161
239.7.254.0/24 dev eth0 scope link

192.168.122.0/24 dev virbr0 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.122.1
10.250.224.0/23 via 10.250.225.190 dev eth0

  • Keywords udp added; Multicast MAC MPEGTS removed

comment:4 Changed 3 months ago by cus

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

I guess this works as it should then.
