#1253 closed defect (worksforme)

FFMpeg don't handle files with some characters

Reported by: Uno Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: ffmpeg
Version: 0.10.2 Keywords:
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

There is no way to make FFMpeg use files with ':' character in filename; neither in the input nor in the output.

ffmpeg -i file\:name.wav file\:name.mp3
ffmpeg -i "file:name.wav" "file:name.mp3"

Reproducible always. Tried the same version of ffmpeg (0.10.2) on both x86 and AMD64.

OS: Gentoo AMD64/Gentoo x86
Called from BASH.

Works fine here, please reopen if you can provide ls output and complete, uncut ffmpeg -i file:filename.extension output.

For example:

$ ls file\:out.avi
file:out.avi
$ ffmpeg -i file:file:out.avi

I'm using the official sources.

These are the sources: http://ffmpeg.org/releases/ffmpeg-0.10.2.tar.bz2

There are just 2 patch that are not involved in filename reading.

And it's the same on two machines.

CFLAGS="-march=amdfam10 -msse4a -mabm -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"
and
CFLAGS="-march=pentium4 -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -msse -msse2 -mmmx"

With the configuration arguments above.

$BASH_VERSION=4.2.20(1)-release

The patches:

Autodetect PowerPC vs. PowerPC64.

This is the same code as for x86_64.
This is necessary because uname returns PPC64 if the hardware
is 64 bit, however the userland can still be fully 32 bit.
In that case FFmpeg fails to compile because some macros in the
asm code are set up incorrectly.

It works! But shouldn't it work also without the "file:" prefix?

No. In ffmpeg, a filename is structured like [protocol:]filename

A protocol says how to interpret the filename which follows. Examples of protocols are file:, pipe:, http:, udp: and rtp:. As a special case, single letter protocols, like c:, are interpreted as a Windows drive letter.

So, in your example, ffmpeg was looking for a protocol named "hello:", and when it couldn't find one by that name, it printed an error message.

I thought it should be that the reason, but shouldn't it answer: "hello: wrong protocol" instead of "hello:goofy.avi: No such file or directory"?

Like this, is a quite confusing...

However I suggest to the developers to treat the unknown protocol as probably file, so just then show an error message if missing!

Thanks for the explanation.

P.s.
Still a weird think: why does it works for "cehoyos"?

Good idea. This is now in Git head:

bar:foo: Protocol not found
