FFMPEG creating broken MP4/Audio files with libx264

Description

The latest version of FFMPEG (N-40824-g31dfe20) is creating broken MP4 files when starting with a TS file.
The Audio is completely out of sync or creates no audio at all.

This is a regression bug so I'm marking it important.

This was working with FFMPEG build N-37915-g6cb2085 with no audio issues.

Attaching the link to the input file (it is 40MB in size unfortunately to be able to replicate the issue).

You can replace libvo_aacenc with ac3 and it still has the same problem. If I put -vn the audio comes back (but there's no video). Some reason the Audio/sync is broken after build N-37915-g6cb2085.

comment:1 Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

My apologies, I got the subject line wrong, it's Libx264. Can it be corrected?

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

  • Summary changed from FFMPEG creating broken MP4/Audio files with LibXvid to FFMPEG creating broken MP4/Audio files with libx264

Is this only reproducible with libx264 or also with -vcodec mpeg4 -strict experimental -acodec aac ?

If this is a regression, please find the version introducing the problem with git bisect.

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by michael

I tried the command with the CSI.ts, i see no desync with ffplay CSI.mp4. With what player do you see a problem ?
Also a minimal command line would simplify debuging this, are all options needed to reproduce this issue?

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

I'm using Windows Media Player and KMPlayer. KMPlayer is not able to play the file while WMP does not have any audio for quite a while after which it suddenly appears but out of sync.

Unfortunatley yes all the parameters are required. If I remove all the params (say use only -sameq it works but the quality is terrible). The previous version of ffmpeg works perfectly with these params. I tend to update ffmpeg every few months, upto N-37915-g6cb2085 there was no issue, somewhere after that it broke (unfortunately I do not know how to use bisect etc to figure it out).

Also mpeg4 codec quality for the same bitrate creates more artifacts so my users insist on using lix264.

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

I tested the following command line and the resulting video plays fine (in sync) with WMP:

$ ffmpeg -i CSI.ts -ss 3 -vf yadif=0:-1,hqdn3d,crop=688:416:14:46 -vcodec mpeg4 -acodec aac -strict experimental -qscale 2 out.mp4

comment:6 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

Thanks, but like I had mentioned earlier the users are insisting on using lix264.
I want to upgrade ffmpeg to the latest version to fix the WTV and MPEG2/TS issues that were fixed recently but with libx264 broken it will not be possible.
MCEBuddy has been running for years on libx264 with a strong userbase.

Is there anyway to isolate the issue?

Replying to ramitbhalla:

Thanks, but like I had mentioned earlier the users are insisting on using lix264.

Did you already confirm that the problem happens with libx264 but not with mpeg4 ?
If yes, which options from your command line can be removed and which are essential to reproduce the problem?

comment:8 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

No I haven't tried it with MPEG4 given the feedback from the uesrs not to use that codec.
Is there some way to identify what broken in libx264 AV sync?

Replying to ramitbhalla:

Is there some way to identify what broken in libx264 AV sync?

there are several options
git bisect
or
try to remove each command line option at a time to find the absolute needed set to reproduce it
or
analyze the output file to find out what is broken if anything.

there may be other options, but most ffmpeg developers dont have windows so its kinda difficult for us to test/fix this. Also if you can confirm that it works with mpeg4 this itself may also be usefull to circle in on the bug ...

comment:10 Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

Yes it works fine with the mpeg4 codec

comment:11 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

Does the following produce a working file or is it sufficient to produce the broken file (or is a parameter missing for the encode to succeed)?
$ ffmpeg -i CSI.ts -crf 2 out.mp4

comment:12 in reply to: ↑ 11 ; follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

This command works fine, produces good audio

Replying to ramitbhalla:

Which of the options from your original command line have to be added to reproduce the problem?
(I understand that adding all options from your original command line will allow to reproduce the problem, the question is to find the minimal set of options.)

comment:14 Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

I hope this narrows it down.

It's the -ss 3 which is causing the Audio to break:

This does NOT work:
ffmpeg -i CSI.ts -ss 3 -vcodec libx264 -b 1911111 -acodec libvo_aacenc -ab 192k csi.mp4

This DOES:
ffmpeg -i CSI.ts -vcodec libx264 -b 1911111 -acodec libvo_aacenc -ab 192k csi.mp4

comment:15 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

The following does work ok?
$ ffmpeg -i CSI-ts -ss 3 -crf 2 out.mp4

I tested the following command line with current ffmpeg and the sample you uploaded (CSI.ts), and I don't see any problems with the resulting file and WMP.
Was the problem fixed?
$ ffmpeg -i CSI-ts -ss 3 -crf 2 out.mp4

As said, this works for me (with libx264), please reopen if you can still reproduce the original problem.
