Description

Summary of the bug:
with some H264 files ffmpeg is able to stream copy the video stream perfectly fine, with other it's not able to.

I've uploaded the file "H264 Copy Remux Fail.wtv" to the FTP server.

How to reproduce:

ffmpeg -i "H264 Copy Remux Fail.wtv" -vcodec copy -an test.ts

  • Keywords av_interleaved_write_frame added
  • Summary changed from FFMPEG unable to stream copy come H264 into mpegts to FFMPEG unable to stream copy some wtv H264 into mpegts

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by ramitbhalla

Anyone any thoughts on this?

comment:4 Changed 3 years ago by dodgexander

I get this problem with 30 percent of my h264 recordings and other converters seem to handle these fine. Perhaps specific to ffmpeg but would lovely to get fixed.

comment:5 follow-up: Changed 3 years ago by dodgexander

Adding -ss 1 to the command fixes this, but why?

Not working:

Replying to dodgexander:

@cehoyos

Adding -ss 1 to the command fixes this, but why?

Does it really? It does not fix the problem here afaict.

comment:7 Changed 3 years ago by dodgexander

With the sample attached, you are correct. With samples I have -ss 1 does fix the problem, but this may be due to the small sample size?

Any way to get this fixed?


Using the sample attached:

ffmpeg -i input.wtv -vcodec copy -acodec copy -map 0:a -map 0:v -f mpegts output.ts

Gives:

O:\ffmpegtest>ffmpeg -i H264_Copy_Remux_Fail_cut.wtv -vcodec copy -acodec copy -
map 0:a -map 0:v -f mpegts H264_Copy_Remux_Fail_cut.ts

Do I need to open another ticket for the samples I have where -ss 1 works? They both return the

comment:10 Changed 3 years ago by ramitbhalla

anyone any thoughts on why this is happening?

comment:11 Changed 3 years ago by cehoyos

FFmpeg does not implement all possible ways of decoding timestamps from h264 streams, this is not necessarily the reason for this problem though.

comment:12 Changed 3 years ago by ramitbhalla

understood - so what is the problem for this issue here?

comment:13 Changed 3 years ago by dodgexander

Any info on this problem?

comment:14 Changed 3 years ago by cehoyos

Apart from the same timestamp problem that (all?) h264 wtv sample have (workaround is to use -ss 1), on stream copying the first h264 frame that begins with "00 00 01 09 10 00 00 00 00 00 01 67 64" (instead of "00 00 00 01 09 10 ...") arrives in the muxer and leads to the failure. In the input file, there are many 0's before the frame (at position 525d7) so this may be a demuxer or parser problem.

comment:15 Changed 3 years ago by dodgexander

But -ss 1 only fixes certain examples, not all examples. For instance the sample provided in this ticket by Ramit is not fixed by -ss 1.

i have a bunch of more files that all exhibit the "pts (xx) < dts (yy) av_interleaved_write_frame(): Invalid argument" failure when trying to convert them to mp4

thanks. actually it seems the problem with files av_interleaved_write_frame.zip, Trust.Me.2013.1080p.WEB-DL.H264-RARBG.mkv and Divergent.2014.RETAIL.1080p.WEB-DL.H264.AC3-EVO has already been fixed previously somewhere between 2.3 and 2.5.3.

anyway you can claim the bounty on bountysource.com
