flac decoding throws "non monotonically increasing dts" error causing audio dropout

Description

I occasionally run across a flac file which decodes with an "Application provided invalid, non monotonically increasing dts to muxer" error. This error is relatively harmless on some machines, but when I run this on an EC2 instance, the decode results in a block of audio silence at the sample where the error is pointing.

Any number of alterations to the exact bits in the encode (lpc_type, minor sample alterations, etc.) prevent the decode errors. However, the silent block is 100% reproducible on my machine for flac files exhibiting this problem.

Example flac file and corresponding ffmpeg output attached:

  • Component changed from ffmpeg to undetermined
  • Priority changed from important to normal

Do you think that this is a regression?

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by ww4

Doesn't seem like it. I went as far back as v2.3.3 looking for a version that doesn't produce the error and haven't found one.

comment:4 Changed 3 years ago by cehoyos

  • Component changed from undetermined to avcodec
  • Keywords flac regression added
  • Priority changed from normal to important
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open

Decoding is incorrect since 9300de0409d52272387a9b9d84143dba212291f4
Workaround is to specify -threads 1.
