movie filter does not accept pipe protocol as input

Reported by: dericed Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: avdevice
Version: git-master Keywords: movie
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug:

The movie filter defines the 'filename' argument with: "The name of the resource to read (not necessarily a file; it can also be a device or a stream accessed through some protocol)."

I would like to have the movie filter access the input from a pipe, but the pipe protocol doesn't appear to work in the movie filter.

How to reproduce:

The ffmpeg is simply used here to produce an output to pipe. ffplay should access the pipe in the movie filter but it provides an error.

This example is the same except that the sdterr output of ffmpeg is redirected to distinguish the two processes:

The pipe protocol does work as a direct input:

It does work here:

ffmpeg -f lavfi -i mandelbrot -c copy -f nut - | ffmpeg -f lavfi -i "movie=pipe
\:0" -f nut -c:v rawvideo - | mpv -

You need to escape ':'.

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by cehoyos

  • Component changed from undetermined to avdevice
  • Keywords pipe removed
  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

It is difficult to escape the colon (needs four backslashes here) but it's possible.
