#8050 new enhancement

Active Format Description missing (MPEG-2 and H.264)

Summary of the bug:

When capturing some DVB-S and DVB-T broadcasts, we can see that the bitstream of the MPEG-2 and AVC/H.264 services include often the Active Format Description (adf):

This flag is usually transmited in:

  • MPEG-2: As "User Data" section (user id: "DTG1").
  • H.264: As "Auxiliary data" in a SEI unit (user id: "DTG1").

None of the current mpeg2 and h264 encoders handle that flag. However, as the Bitstream Filters for MPEG-2 (mpeg2_metadata) and H.264 (h264_metadata) can handle different flags similar to this, I request to add support for set/get the ADF flag.

Thank you!
