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

I think I am seeing the same issue , trying to convert to AC3 inside AVI container.

Regardless if I use 2 channel or 6 channel, i get 4/125 for audio stream time_base. unfortunately, when playing on an xbox360, only the 2 channel will play, and the 6 channel will fail. i have another video which does play on the xbox360 (which I did not encode), it has 6 channels, sample_rate=48000.000000, and time_base=1/56000. so it is possible to play 6 channel ac3 on the xbox360 in the avi format.

this is the failing video:

Replying to rhuddusa:

I think I am seeing the same issue , trying to convert to AC3 inside AVI container.

Regardless if I use 2 channel or 6 channel, i get 4/125 for audio stream time_base. unfortunately, when playing on an xbox360, only the 2 channel will play, and the 6 channel will fail.

It sounds as if the problems are not related.

Please confirm if the working 6 channel file is using a WAVEFORMATEX header or not (or open a new ticket attaching a short working sample).

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by rhuddusa

i hope my verbose posting doesn't make you think i know what i'm really doing here :)

how would i check for the WAVEFORMATEX header in an existing video file?

comment:7 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

So please open a new ticket and attach a short sample of a working 6 channel file.

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by rhuddusa

unfortunately, i don't have a public sample available right now, but when i do, i will open a new ticket and attach a short sample

only other information i can add, is that if i do a ffmpeg with vcodec copy, acodec copy, on my working AVI/ac3 6 channel file

[STREAM]
index=1
codec_name=ac3
codec_long_name=ATSC A/52A (AC-3)
codec_type=audio
codec_time_base=0/1
codec_tag_string=[0] [0][0]
codec_tag=0x2000
sample_rate=48000.000000
channels=6
bits_per_sample=0
r_frame_rate=0/0
avg_frame_rate=0/0
time_base=1/56000
start_time=0.000000
duration=N/A
nb_frames=303959040
STREAM

the output is with format avi:
[STREAM]
index=1
codec_name=ac3
codec_long_name=ATSC A/52A (AC-3)
codec_type=audio
codec_time_base=0/1
codec_tag_string=[0] [0][0]
codec_tag=0x2000
sample_rate=48000.000000
channels=6
bits_per_sample=0
r_frame_rate=0/0
avg_frame_rate=0/0
time_base=4/125
start_time=0.000000
duration=2475.520000
nb_frames=77360
STREAM

and the output is with format mov:
[STREAM]
index=1
codec_name=ac3
codec_long_name=ATSC A/52A (AC-3)
codec_type=audio
codec_time_base=0/1
codec_tag_string=ac-3
codec_tag=0x332d6361
sample_rate=48000.000000
channels=6
bits_per_sample=0
r_frame_rate=0/0
avg_frame_rate=0/0
time_base=1/48000
start_time=0.000000
duration=2453.248000
nb_frames=76664
STREAM

so that's my theory that this is specific to avi, i get that time_base=4/125, but works correctly under mov format where i get a time_base=1/48000. i can't find a way to change the resulting avi time_base value

but unfortunately, the xbox 360 only takes 6 channel audio with AVI and ac3

sorry to complain without an actual test case ... i'll work on providing one

comment:9 Changed 5 years ago by rhuddusa

i should note, i cancelled the ffmpeg operation part way through each of the conversions, so the nb_frames is useless

comment:10 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

I would like to support you on this issue (it was discussed very often in the past, if it is really true that the xbox only supports broken avi files, there at least is a chance that the relevant FFmpeg code gets changed), but you absolutely have to open a new ticket!

comment:11 Changed 4 years ago by michael

About the original issue, could you please explain what does not work ?
The timebase looks perfectly valid to me.

comment:12 Changed 4 years ago by cehoyos

  • Cc rhuddusa added
  • Resolution set to needs_more_info
  • Status changed from open to closed

Concerning the original issue, I am closing this ticket, please reopen if you can provide the missing information.

Concerning the problem with multichannel ac3-in-avi on xbox 360: I still believe this could be fixed (easily), but only if more information can be provided.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
