OS X: Not possible to use videotoolbox in ffplay

Description

ffplay version N-81124-g77eb05a-tessus

I'm trying to play a file (to produce a debug log) using ffplay with videotoolbox (VTB) enabled.

"./ffplay -codecs | grep 264" returns " DEV.LS h264 H.264 / AVC / MPEG-4 AVC / MPEG-4 part 10 (decoders: h264 h264_vda ) (encoders: libx264 libx264rgb h264_videotoolbox )"

But when I do "./ffplay -codec:v h264_videotoolbox file.mkv" I get "No codec could be found with name 'h264_videotoolbox'".

Btw using h264_vda crashes ffplay (vda is no longer supported by OS X 10.11.

This has currently no similarity with a valid ticket: Please provide failing command line and complete, uncut console output.

Try running with the -hwaccel videotoolbox option. Videotoolbox is not implemented as a self-contained decoder yet.

-hwaccel videotoolbox only works in ffmpeg, not ffplay:

Replying to tripkip:

Btw using h264_vda crashes ffplay (vda is no longer supported by OS X 10.11.

How can I reproduce the crash?
Please open a separate ticket, crashes are always important.

Well it's quite simple, the fact that it crashes is because the VDA framework simply doesn't exist in 10.11 anymore. I hope someone can add VTB to FFPlay soon...

Please provide at least the command line you tested and the complete, uncut console output. A backtrace would be nice.

I can't get it to crash anymore but you can clearly see in the log that the vda decoder cannot be initiated (because the framework doesn't exist on OSX 10.11).

ffmpeg supports VTB decoder, so it shouldn't be hard to enable it in ffplay?

comment:8 follow-up: Changed 2 years ago by cehoyos

So there is no crash?

comment:9 Changed 2 years ago by tripkip

There was, but can't reproduce it anymore (even with the version I used before).
