#2349 closed defect (wontfix)

Windows, continuously write progress on one line

Reported by: svnpenn Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: ffmpeg
Version: git-master Keywords: win
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: yes
Analyzed by developer: no


When encoding FFmpeg prints a new line every second with the progress, example

frame= 31 fps=0.0 q=0.0 size= 152kB time=00:00:00.72 bitrate=1726.3kbits/s
frame= 59 fps= 57 q=0.0 size= 175kB time=00:00:01.90 bitrate= 751.1kbits/s
frame= 89 fps= 58 q=0.0 size= 204kB time=00:00:03.04 bitrate= 549.8kbits/s

With a large file these lines can quickly fill the console screen. I would like to see the progress on one line if possible, that is to say each second the same line is overwritten with the updated progress.

Did you try to make your console slightly larger?

comment:2 by svnpenn, 10 years ago

Ha! That did it.

comment:3 by svnpenn, 10 years ago

At least with Windows, FFmpeg requires 85 columns to print progress correctly. I set this using the registry

reg add "hkcu\console" -v WindowSize -d 0x00190055 -f -t reg_dword
reg add "hkcu\console" -v ScreenBufferSize -d 0x03e80055 -f -t reg_dword

This has been open for five years. Can it be fixed? See #6942. Personally, an ETA would suffice as a progress line for me -- or time/size/bitrate tops! The remaining information seems quite low-level.

Given that Windows 10 allows to resize the cmd Window, this is less likely to be fixed now.
