ffplay fails to seek

Version: git-master Keywords: seek regression

Analyzed by developer: no

Description

I wanted to investigate ticket #296, but found out that ffplay is unable to seek in the attached file to certain durations while ffmpeg have no problem to do so (ffmpeg -ss 10 -i keyframe_every_100_frames.avi out.avi).

(the same problem is reproducible while seeking with the mouse).

It looks like ffmpeg is more precise at seeking than ffplay? (see attached file)

comment:5 by Carl Eugen Hoyos, 5 years ago

Keywords: regression added

For the attached sample, I can reproduce a regression since 3166a6fc379789b3782f431dd232033c2069c443:
Seeking 10 seconds forwards and backwards a few times (making sure that backwards seeking always ends at about 2 seconds) suddenly seeks to 24 seconds (instead of the usual 12), this can be reproduced another time. The behaviour cannot be seen with older versions. The same behaviour can be seen when changing "left" and "right" to -5 and +5 seconds: Instead of seeking to around 8 seconds (after seeking back to 2 or 3), forward seeking again ends at 24 seconds.

[mpeg4 @ 0x7f990c013220] Video uses a non-standard and wasteful way to store B-frames ('packed B-frames'). Consider using the mpeg4_unpack_bframes bitstream filter without encoding but stream copy to fix it.
