Crash when trying to capture camera / libx264

Reported by: async Owned by:

Version: unspecified Keywords: crash
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no



ffmpeg crashes whenever I try to execute the following command-line:

ffmpeg -y -f dshow -i video="Integrated Webcam" -vcodec libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p output.mkv

reproduced on Windows 7 & 8 64 bits
Feb 17 2013 02:47:14 with gcc 4.7.2 (GCC)

It works fine with build Mar 25 2012 20:28:42 with gcc 4.6.2

Thank You

  • Component changed from FFmpeg to undetermined
  • Keywords crash added; Windows 7/8 64 bits removed
  • Priority changed from critical to important

Does it also crash if you do not use an external library (libx264) but -vcodec mpeg4?
Please add the complete console output to make this a valid ticket.

Using command-line
ffmpeg -y -f dshow -i video="Integrated Webcam" -vcodec mpeg4 -r 25 output.mpg
works fine

Does the following also crash?
$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i color -t 10 -vcodec libx264 out.mp4
