Description

Summary of the bug:

FFMPEG will process concatenation of vob files with subtitles agonizingly slowly (less than real time speed on my i9-7900x with stream copy!) and the progress display is erratic.

How to reproduce:

ffmpeg f concat -safe 0 -i list.txt -vcodec copy -acodec pcm_s16be -scodec copy mux.vob 

list.txt contains several vob files with MPEG2 video, LPCM audio and subtitles.

Separate concat with several files that have video, audio and subtitles and then remuxing to a final output works infinitely faster, like so:

ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i list.txt -vcodec copy -acodec pcm_s16be mux1.vob
ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i list.txt -vn -an -scodec copy mux2.vob
ffmpeg -i mux1.vob -i mux2.vob -map 0:v -map 0:a -map 1:s -vcodec copy -acodec pcm_s16be -scodec copy mux.vob

HOWEVER, this breaks subtitle timing (they play about two seconds too early. Also potential bug?)

Below is a sample of ffmpeg's console output with the buggy command.

Replying to oerg866:

FFMPEG will process concatenation of vob files with subtitles agonizingly slowly (less than real time speed on my i9-7900x with stream copy!)

frame= 2003 fps=159 q=-1.0 size=     944kB time=00:01:20.04 bitrate=  96.6kbits/s speed=6.34x

Looks much faster than real-time.

In any case, the speed of this operation is not related to your cpu but your drive speed.
