#28 closed defect (fixed)

Encoding mpeg-4 with threads and b-frames outputs errors on decoding

Description (last modified by cehoyos)

With this sample, at least four threads are necessary to trigger an error on decoding, three is enough for other samples (that trigger different errors on decoding). The container does not seem to matter.

I can replicate this without specifying -threads. I've only tried it with xvid, but if the -bf flag is set during encoding, the output video appears corrupted when playing in VLC... totem plays them fine.

I assume that means the problem is due to VLC's use of ffmpeg in decoding.

I can provide a sample file if necessary.

@maldata: What you described in vlc ticket 5242 has nothing to do with this ticket.

Please open a new ticket here, provide complete, uncut output of your failing command line and provide (or point to) a sample.
