#1485 open enhancement

Support for Quicktime CLEF/TAPT atoms

Description

FFmpeg does not currently support the Quicktime CLEF (Track Clean Aperture Dimensions) and TAPT (Track Aperture Mode Dimensions) atoms. (See https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/QuickTime/QTFF/QTFFChap2/qtff2.html) These atoms are necessary for detecting the correct dimensions for some videos, since they take precedence in Quicktime over the normal TKHD (track header) width/height and over the track PASP (pixel aspect ratio).

The attached patch adds support for these atoms. I can provide a sample video if desired.

  • Keywords mov added
  • Status changed from new to open

Please provide a sample and please consider sending patches to ffmpeg-devel, they generally receive more attention there.

I see you already uploaded the same sample I was going to provide, nice :-) Should I still also mail this to the list?

comment:4 Changed 4 years ago by cehoyos

A patch on ffmpeg-devel generally receives more attention, so if you want the patch included, it may make sense to send it to the list. Please don't forget to clarify if you wrote the patch yourself or add credits.

To duplicate the comment from the ML:
This patch worsens the aspect ratio of the sample from:
https://ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/ticket/1439

the center circle looks more round before this patch than afterwards


Do you have time to investigate this and submit a patch that does not cause regressions ?

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.video.ffmpeg.devel/146783
I wonder how the sample from ticket #1439 signals that the Clean Aperture Dimensions are to be used on an active area of 702x576, I only found dimensions of 720x576 (and the display dimension of 1024x576) in the file.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
