report on ffv1 version and slices

Description

Summary of the bug:

Since ffv1 version 3 may someday become the default there should be a way to identify whether an ffv1 encoding is version 1, or 3 (or 0). Currently the version isn't reported either during encoding or with ffprobe -show_streams.

How to reproduce:

Produce ffv1 encodings with version 1 and version 3.
Version 1:

There's no method to identify what version a given ffv1 encoding was made with.

The specifications for the ffv1 header are here: http://ffmpeg.org/~michael/ffv1.html#toc-Subsection-4.3.

If version >1 it may be useful to report the minor_version as well. At the moment I can't think of a reason to need to report things like coder_type and number of slices but it may be nice.

  • Component changed from undetermined to avcodec
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

ffplay -debug 1 <ffvfile>
will show the version

comment:2 Changed 4 years ago by dericed

Using ffplay to determine the version is a bit awkward to handle programmatically. Is it feasible to grab this data through ffmpeg or ffprobe?

comment:3 Changed 4 years ago by richardpl

ffmpeg -v debug ... ?

comment:4 follow-up: Changed 4 years ago by dericed

Not sure why I didn't try that.

If anyone else needs it here is what I'm using to get a version number of the ffv1 codec:

ffmpeg -debug 1 -i ffv1_file.mov -t 0.1 -f null - 2>&1 | grep -o "ver:[0-9]*" | head -n1 | cut -d: -f2

Replying to dericed:

If anyone else needs it here is what I'm using to get a version number of the ffv1 codec:

ffmpeg -debug 1 -i ffv1_file.mov -t 0.1 -f null -

-vframes 1 may be more appropriate than -t 0.1
