[regression] `ffmpeg` 5.0.1 crashes when using domain in URL when uploading to RTMP endpoint

Description

Summary of the bug:

On ffmpeg 5.0.1 static from https://github.com/eugeneware/ffmpeg-static/releases/tag/b5.0.1 (originally from https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/), when streaming to a RTMP endpoint using a domain as host name (in this case localhost) it crash with a SEGFAULT signal, generating a core dump. OTOH, when using an IP instead, it works flawlessly and can stream to the server. I have also check it with version 4.4.2-0ubuntu0.22.04.1 from Ubuntu repositories, and it doesn't crash when using both IP and domain (it fails in both case because I didn't have a server to fully test as with 5.0.1 version, but in neither case they crashed), so that leads me to think it's a regression, not sure if in RTMP uploader component, or on URL parser.

How to reproduce:

% node_modules/ffmpeg-static/ffmpeg      -re      -f lavfi        -i smptebars=rate=30:size=640x360      -f lavfi        -i sine=frequency=1000      -vf "drawtext=text=\'%{pts:hms}\':rate=30:x=(w-tw)/2:y=(h-lh)/2:fontsize=48:fontcolor=white:box=1:boxcolor=black"        -vcodec libx264        -profile:v baseline        -pix_fmt yuv420p        -preset ultrafast        -tune zerolatency        -crf 28      -acodec aac      -f flv        rtmp://localhost:1935

Please test current FFmpeg git head and report back.

Please test current FFmpeg git head and report back.

I don't have binaries for the latest version. Just to confirm, are you asking about download latest version from git and compile it myself? Yes, I think can try to do it...

comment:3 by Carl Eugen Hoyos, 17 months ago

In an ideal world you would compile yourself but using a precompiled binary is a useful alternative.

comment:4 by Jesús Leganés-Combarro, 17 months ago

I've simplified the command (I did it this way to don't need to deal with libx264 library on the custom compilation), and with prebuild image of 5.0.1-static still fails, so it's easier to replicate:

I've compiled release/5.1 branch and executed this simplified command, and with version 5.1.1 it's working, so not sure if it got fixed, or it's some issue regarding the compilation of the static binary:

So it seems the issue happens when doing the conversion from the domain to the IP. Any clue what could be happening? How can we proceed from here?

I have tested with latest static prebuild (5.1.1-static, https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/releases/ffmpeg-release-amd64-static.tar.xz) and it's also crashing :-/

otes: A limitation of statically linking glibc is the loss of DNS resolution. Installing

nscd through your package manager will fix this.

So, after installing nscd package (sudo apt install nscd), static build is not crashing anymore :-( It seems to me "maybe" when ffmpeg does a DNS resolution, it's being returned an unmanaged value (probably a null pointer?) and that's why the crash and core dump is being generated. Does it makes sense?

Please reopen this ticket if you can test with current FFmpeg git head.

Please reopen this ticket if you can test with current FFmpeg git head.

I can do it, just only would need to know what's the actual ffmpeg git development branch (there are several ones and I'm getting a bit lost... master? releases/5.1?), and if there's any special configuration to build a static binary, or if it's just enough to use gcc instructions to generate it.

comment:9 by Carl Eugen Hoyos, 17 months ago

I know of only one development branch, builds exist to the best of my knowledge.

comment:10 by Jesús Leganés-Combarro, 17 months ago

But, what branch is it? I see no develop or similar ones...
