Conversion of some .wtv files to .mpg produces unplayable file

Description

Summary of the bug: Using Windows 8 Pro with Media Center to record digital TV. FFmpeg is then used to convert the .wtv files to .mpg using "-vcodec copy -acodec copy" options for playback on a PS3.
Some (not all) recordings from one TV station do not convert properly (have not encountered the problem with any other station.
When attempting to play the file using Media Player, it freezes at the first frame. When playing on a PS3, the video plays correctly but there is no audio.
The conversion produces "mpeg_decode_postinit() failure" errors. Modifying analyzeduration and probesize does not remove the error.
How to reproduce:

ffmpeg.exe -y -i "Pat Callinan's 4x4 Adventures_Ten Digital_2012_12_23_11_57_18.wtv" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f dvd "Pat Callinan's 4x4 Adventures_Ten Digital_2012_12_23_11_57_18.mpg"

I have a sample .wtv file cut down to 10MB. When I convert the sample to .mpg, it does play on Media Player but without sound.

Please post a sample .wtv file to reproduce the problem.

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by peterdeg

Hope the files are readable. wtv_file_fails_convert_to_mpg*
Apologies for the size, I did truncate them to 10MB but something went wrong somewhere and I managed to start uploading the full file (twice) Hopefully, what I have uploaded is useable

I tested the following:

$ ffmpeg -i wtv_file_fails_convert_to_mpg.wtv -vcodec copy -acodec copy out.mpg

At least one output file must be specified

The output file looks as expected and plays fine with ffplay and MPlayer (and vlc).
What is the exact problem?

comment:4 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by peterdeg

Sorry to take so long to respond. Was doing some further testing.

I have two files. The original ~2GB file .mpg and a the small 10MB sample I extracted with dd.

I have tried playing these samples locally on the pc (Win8) using ffplay N-47062-g26c531c, VLC 2.05 and Windows Media Player 12.0.9200.16420.

The pc also runs Twonky to share the files so I can play them remotely on a PS3.

ffplay

  • small - video starts immediately. video has sound.
  • large - video starts immediately. video has sound.

VLC

  • small - video starts immediately. video has sound.
  • large - video starts immediately. video has sound.

WMP

  • small - video starts after 2 second pause. video does not have sound.
  • large - video starts after 150 second pause. video does not have sound. resource monitor shows wmp reading from the disk at ~25MB/sec for the first minute of pause and dropping to 11MB/sec for the rest of the pause.

PS3

  • small - video starts immediately. video does not have sound.
  • large - video starts immediately. video does not have sound.

In the last couple of months, I've recorded over 50 tv programs on this pc and converted them to .mpg for playback. The problem I'm seeing has so far only happened with shows from one channel (but not all shows on that channel) The original .wtv files plays correctly using WMP.

  • Component changed from undetermined to avformat
  • Keywords mpegps added
  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Version changed from unspecified to git-master

Replying to peterdeg:

WMP

  • small - video starts after 2 second pause. video does not have sound.

Sounds like a duplicate of ticket #1720 - I suggest you test again once that ticket is fixed.
