Description

Summary of the bug:
The ffmpeg transcoding procedure results stuck when trying to transcode a mjpeg/pcm_s16le file to h264/aac. This is what I see after many hours of transcoding:

host-001:No backup luca$ ffmpeg -i DSCN0468.AVI -vcodec libx264 -vprofile high -preset veryslow -crf 22 -acodec aac -strict -2 DSCN0468_transcoded_mac.mp4 -threads 0

Everything is still at this point, and the output file size does not increase anymore. Also, -threads 0 commonly uses 4 cores here, resulting in approx 400% of CPU usage. When this point is reached, ffmpeg CPU usage is down to 100% and seems not to end.

I tried to transcode to ac3 and it seemed to go over that point.
Then I tried to produce a sample containing only 30 seconds of audio and transcode to aac. The result is:

No more output.
I'll provide shortly the sample.avi on the upload.ffmpeg.org server with the name aac_stuck_transcoding.avi.

My system is Mac OS X 10.8.3. ffmpeg was built using macports.

Sample file fit as attachment, so I uploaded here. Is it possible to destroy it as soon as it is not needed anymore?

  • Component changed from undetermined to avcodec
  • Keywords aac regression added
  • Priority changed from normal to important
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Version changed from unspecified to 1.2.1

Regression since c065255 / dc7e7d4 - fixed in current git head and origin/release/1.2, thank you for the report!
