  • Analyzed by developer set
  • Component changed from undetermined to avcodec
  • Keywords msmpeg4 qscale added
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Summary changed from msmpeg4v2 enc: blinking square at the bottom-right corner of the video to msmpeg4 reencode MB as intra or picture with higher quantizer if syntax limits are hit
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement
  • Version changed from unspecified to git-master

This is a sideeffect of the motion estimation, bitrate and limitations of msmpeg4.
You can workaround the issue by using -mbd 2.

Its a bit borderline but i think this is a feature request not so much a bug. The bug is in the way msmpeg4v2 was designed. MS made a mistake there in the range that is needed to store coefficients.
