ffmpeg wont display/decode dvbsubs

Reported by: gentian Owned by:

Cc: michael Blocked By:

Analyzed by developer: no

Description

I have been trying to burn live dvbsub subtitles into HLS stream but it is not working. The encoding starts fine but there are no subtitles on the video. sometimes you can see them only for a second and then nothing is shown except some clicks and freezes on the video. what could be wrong?

comment:1 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

Do you believe this is a regression?

Is the issue only reproducible with hls output or also with file output?
Is the issue only reproducible with the tee muxer or also without?
Is audio required to reproduce the issue or is it also reproducible with -an?
Is using an external library like libx264 required to reproduce the issue or is it reproducible with a native (internal) encoder?

And most important: Is the issue reproducible with file input?

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by gentian

I have been trying for almost a year , constantly trying updates from master, to achive this but no luck. The maximum i achive is 1 or 2 subtitles for the first 3-4 seconds then i see nothing, while the video has some small glitches and freezes (which i believe they happen at the time when subtitles are burned)...So for me is not a regression because i never could achieve a live burning of dvbsub subtitles to hls...

I always tried HLS with tee muxer. I tried -an but nothing changes, audio does not play any role with it. Never tried other codec as i only need H264 and HLS output.

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

  • Keywords overlay subtitles burning removed
  • Priority changed from important to normal

Please provide a dump of the input stream.

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by gentian

a TS file from the output hls file? the input is MPTS stream.

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

Please provide a dump of the input MPTS stream.

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by gentian

I have also feedback from other companies that deliver OTT services using ffmpeg/HLS that they can not support dvbsub subtitles and could not burn them for live channels. only by using proprietary encoding appliances they could achieve this feature.
if there is someone from ffmpeg community who has done this please contribute with a fix or let us know as i believe there are many others who desperately need this feature to work with ffmpeg.

comment:7 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

Please ask other companies if they reported this issue to FFmpeg / how they believe that issues may be fixed without a report...
(Trac does not report file uploads as ticket updates, I didn't know you provided a sample until now.)

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by gentian

ok, i did not know that trac was not reporting file upload.

not sure, but i have checked their service in two cases and there are no subs. and i have seen some tickets with dvbsub-burning issue so i have a feeling there is a general problem with that. if it only with me then is better cause then there would be a solution :)

comment:9 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

service_name and service_provider differ between your console output and the uploaded sample: How did you produce the uploaded sample?
Please upload a dump of the input stream, not a file created with remuxing the input stream with FFmpeg.

comment:10 Changed 5 years ago by gentian

i used ffmpeg -i <mulitcast> -map 0:p:1002 -c copy to sample.ts,
tell me what do you need me to use for the dumping process?

comment:11 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

I often use mplayer -dumpstream, I am sure there are alternatives.

comment:12 Changed 4 years ago by ilir

I just uploaded a sample with similar problems (https://trac.ffmpeg.org/attachment/ticket/4200/dvbsub-sample.ts).

No subtitles are shown in FFplay/FFmpeg but VLC shows subtitles without a problem.

Is there a solution for this?

Thank you.

does indeed fail to burn subs.

Replying to compn:

ffmpeg -i dvbsub-sample.ts -filter_complex "[0:v][0:s]overlay[v]" -map "[v]" -map 0:a out.mkv

does indeed fail to burn subs.
subs also do not appear in ffplay using 't' key.

They used to be shown (incorrectly!) with older versions of ffmpeg (?) and ffplay - it may make sense to bisect to know which change completely removed them.

Please consider using Code Blocks to make the console output slightly more readable and please avoid using external libraries if they are not needed to reproduce an issue - in many cases, this makes understanding the issues more difficult.
