When I convert "bikerace.pbm" file to rv10

ffmpeg -i C:\bikerace.pbm -vcodec rv10 out.rm

everything works ok, but when I try to decode it I get error:

I think this is a bug in RV10 / RV20 encoder that it doesn't check which picture sizes are valid for this
codec, so probably a check like for H263 codec should be added to these codecs as well (I don't know
which picture sizes are valid for RV10 and RV10, but for example 320x240 resolution seems to work correctly, but for example is not allowed for h263).


    case CODEC_ID_H263:
        if (!CONFIG_H263_ENCODER)  return -1;
        if (ff_match_2uint16(h263_format, FF_ARRAY_ELEMS(h263_format), s->width, s->height) == 8) {
            av_log(avctx, AV_LOG_ERROR, "The specified picture size of %dx%d is not valid for the H.263 codec.\nValid sizes are 128x96, 176x144, 352x288, 704x576, and 1408x1152. Try H.263+.\n", s->width, s->height);
            return -1;
        s->out_format = FMT_H263;
        s->obmc= (avctx->flags & CODEC_FLAG_OBMC) ? 1:0;


    case CODEC_ID_RV10:
        s->out_format = FMT_H263;
    case CODEC_ID_RV20:
        s->out_format = FMT_H263;
        s->unrestricted_mv= 0;

  • Analyzed by developer set
  • Component changed from undetermined to avformat
  • Keywords rm muxer added
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Summary changed from add a check for input picture size in rv10/rv20 encoders to rm muxer fails with frames larger than 64k byte

The problem is in the RM muxer which does not fully support frames that need more than 64k byte

  • Keywords real added; rm muxer removed

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

  • Version changed from unspecified to git-master

The original issue (rv10 needs dimensions that are multiples of 16, rv20 needs multiples of 4) was fixed by you in 388241ef and fef75ef.

The issue with too large frames is apparently reproducible with the following command line:
$ ffmpeg -i matrixbench_mpeg2.mpg -vf scale=512:512,noise=100:100 -qscale 2 test.rm
