DTS < PCR error when using muxrate option in mpegts

Reported by: zcybercomputing Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: undetermined
Version: git-master Keywords: mpegts
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

When trying to encode any slate video source that contains still pictures that transition with a cut. Particularly on slides of solid colors, or other easy to compress frames.

How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -i cut_encode_test.mp4 -f mpegts -mpegts_pmt_start_pid 0x40 -mpegts_start_pid 0x45 -vf "fps=29.97,scale=704x480" -muxrate 1000k -vcodec mpeg2video -threads 0 -tune zerolatency -pix_fmt yuv420p -b:v 500k -acodec ac3 -ar 48000 -b:a 50k -me_method epzs out.ts

Here is an updated simplified command with verbose mode console output.

ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -i cut_encode_test.mp4 -f mpegts -muxrate 1000k -vcodec mpeg2video -b:v 500k -acodec ac3 -ar 48000 -b:a 50k out.ts

So after simplifying the command further by removing the audio, and playing with the bit rates I noticed some weird behavior. I went to using the original source file I recorded on a hyperdeck shuttle, because I was not sure if the source bit rate effected anything. That file is too large to upload here, but the mp4 I uploaded shows the same behavior at a slightly lower bit rate.

The error does not happen when I have the muxrate 50k more then three times the video bit rate for this test file. If I omit the -b:v argument, then I can go down to 1401k. This also happens with audio present at higher bit rates with more complex video. This appears to be the encoder or mux breaking down for some reason, but I am not sure what to pursue as the cause.

I will experiment further with more complex video. My goal is to encode video in the 2-3 Mbps range for use on ATSC TV, hence the requirement for a tight pcr interval that FFmpeg only does when using the muxrate command.

ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -i "C:/Users/Zach/Development/Test Files/Capture0000.mov" -f mpegts -muxrate 1000k -vcodec mpeg2video -b:v 500k -an out.ts

and

ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -i "C:/Users/Zach/Development/Test Files/Capture0000.mov" -f mpegts -muxrate 1401k -vcodec mpeg2video -an out.ts

I know there were some complaints in the comments here: http://www.waveguide.se/?article=creating-dvb-t-compatible-mpeg2-streams-using-ffmpeg (which may contain some other helpful info) about ffmpeg's TS muxer being broken? Same thing?

comment:5 Changed 3 years ago by michael

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

No max rate and VBV buffer size is set so the bitrate can exceed the muxrate and fail.
its impossible to store a stream that exceeds the muxrate in the VBV sense significantly with said muxrate. To avoid such cases the parameters have to be set up correctly, the exact parameters depend on the target one encodes for ...
