PS3 compatibility regression

Reported by: SubJunk Owned by:
Priority: important Component: undetermined
Version: git-master Keywords: regression mpegps
Cc: michael Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug:
Prior to the commit https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFmpeg/commit/967facb it was possible to produce MPEG-2/AC3 files compatible with PS3 and other renderers.
It is still possible, however seeking sometimes produces incompatible files.
I have confirmed that it started with 967facb; f1fdd20 and releases prior to that work perfectly.

How to reproduce:
ffmpeg -ss 2 -i input.mkv -bufsize 7000000 -maxrate 54000000 -f vob output.mpeg

Confirmed with 63951ae (latest)

Here are two files, 7MB each, that show the bug. One was made by f1fdd20 and the other 967facb:

http://www.spirton.com/uploads/FFmpeg/ps3compat-967facb-withbug.mpeg
http://www.spirton.com/uploads/FFmpeg/ps3compat-f1fdd20-withoutbug.mpeg

MediaInfo? doesn't report any difference between the two files except the new one has a "Delay relative to video" of 26.5 hours, whereas the older one (which works) doesn't report a delay.

Thanks for the quick response. Here's the info, and it should be noted that I have tried a variety of input formats (AVI, MP4, MKV, etc. using various codecs, mostly XviD or x264 video with AC-3, DTS or MP3 audio, with the same results for each:

Replying to SubJunk:

Here's the info, and it should be noted that I have tried a variety of input formats

You could try -acodec ac3 as output codec.

comment:4 Changed 4 years ago by SubJunk

Thanks for the suggestion but it still happens with that. Also the same with -acodec copy.

Edit: It also occurs with -f dvd

I just tested more and it doesn't happen without audio (-an) so it does seem to be linked to audio.

comment:6 Changed 4 years ago by michael

Can you provide a small input file with which this can be reproduced?
I see no link to the input.mkv that you use, so i cant use that ...

comment:8 Changed 4 years ago by SubJunk

Sure thing. I cut this 13MB sample for you:
http://www.spirton.com/uploads/FFmpeg/1745-Sample.mkv

Using the following CMD on the sample above will produce the incompatible video:
ffmpeg -ss 30.0 -i 1745-Sample.mkv -bufsize 7000000 -maxrate 54000000 -f vob -c:a copy output-withbug.mpeg

While this will produce a compatible video:
ffmpeg -ss 15.0 -i 1745-Sample.mkv -bufsize 7000000 -maxrate 54000000 -f vob -c:a copy output-withoutbug.mpeg

comment:9 Changed 4 years ago by michael

please try if adding -preload 5M or something similar fixes it ? (this is not really a solution but would help narrow down what the problem is)

comment:10 Changed 4 years ago by SubJunk

Yes, that does fix it. It produces a file that has a negative 5 second delay on the audio, so when it starts playing there is no video for 5 seconds, but it does play.

comment:11 Changed 4 years ago by michael

ok, then please try -avoid_negative_ts 1 (this needs a very recent git checkout of ffmpeg)

comment:12 Changed 4 years ago by SubJunk

It has the same effect as the preload did; the video plays now but with no video for 5 seconds

comment:13 Changed 4 years ago by michael

ok, next try, -copypriorss 0 possibly with -avoid_negative_ts 1

comment:14 Changed 4 years ago by SubJunk

Looks like we have a winner! :)
It works with just -copypriorss 0, as well as with them both. Thanks for the quick fix!

comment:15 Changed 4 years ago by SubJunk

Tested with another video and it needed both commands to work

comment:16 Changed 4 years ago by SubJunk

This is fixed now, so feel free to close this ticket, and thanks for the fix!

  • Resolution set to fixed

Thank you for testing again!
