ffmpeg vda hardware decoder not working

Summary of the bug:
ffmpeg vda hardware decoder is not working.

the goal I want to achieve is using the vda hardware decoder to decode a mp4 file into a yuv file.

How to reproduce:

% ./ffmpeg -vcodec h264_vda -i ~/Downloads/big_buck_bunny_720p_surround.avi out.yuv
ffmpeg version 2.6.1 Copyright (c) 2000-2015 the FFmpeg developers
  built with Apple LLVM version 6.0 (clang-600.0.57) (based on LLVM 3.5svn)

  libavcodec     56. 26.100 / 56. 26.100

[10:20:50.169] vtDecompressionDuctCreate signalled err=-8973 (err) (Could not select and open decoder instance) at /SourceCache/CoreMedia_frameworks/CoreMedia-1562.107/Sources/VideoToolbox/VTDecompressionSession.c line 1181

[avi @ 0x7f9feb00da00] Failed to open codec in av_find_stream_info

the following command won't work either. it won't generate any error, but only software decoder will be used even I explicitly requested vda_h264 decoder.

% ./ffmpeg -hwaccel vda -i ~/Downloads/big_buck_bunny_720p_surround.avi -c:v rawvideo -pix_fmt yuv420p out.yuv

  • Priority changed from important to normal
  • Version changed from 2.6 to git-master
mov extradata is currently needed for h264 vda decoding.
