Description

Summary of the bug:

Presently it takes some testing to figure out what inputs are supported by any particular decklink device. For instance although analog, analog_rca, and analog_xlr are listed as options for -audio_input, the support varies per decklink device. Below is an example of looping through the list to test each one but I suggest a ffmpeg -f decklink -list_inputs 1 -i "Decklink Device" would be cleaner.

How to reproduce:

for i in analog analog_rca analog_xlr embedded aes_ebu ; do echo "===" ; echo "$i" ; echo "====" ; /usr/local/opt/ffmpegdecklink/bin/ffmpeg-dl -hide_banner -nostdin -f decklink -audio_input "$i" -video_input sdi -format_code ntsc -raw_format yuv422p10 -timecode_format vitc -i "UltraStudio Express" ; done

Not sure I understand: Are you searching for -list_formats?

comment:2 Changed 6 weeks ago by dericed

-list_formats shows what options are available for the input to use with -format_code

I suggest that -list_inputs would show what options are available for the input for use with -audio_input and -video_input
