RTSP h264 video stream always reports corrupted macroblock

Description

I am trying to convert a RTSP h264 video stream from a "Geovision" IP camera to any other format but ffmpeg always sees errors in the video data. The resulting video only shows the first few lines of each frame.

I've captured a few seconds of video (~4MB) to a file using the "openRTSP" utility. Unfortunately, your ftp server at upload.ffmpeg.org currently appears to be offline, so it is here:

Please test latest git head (the version you are using is ancient, sorry if the download page does not make this clear).

Please test ffmpeg -i rtsp://... -qscale 10 out.avi, I don't think the captured file can be played ("001" missing between the slices, iirc).

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by andrewc

I believe I've hit a related (if not identical) bug with "Geovision GV-FE420" (which almost caused me to lose my sanity). When viewing an rtsp stream (in zoneminder) via ffmpeg, the output is corrupted in almost every frame after the first. VLC displays ok, but disconnects after 20-40 minutes. I currently have a ticket open with Geovision, so far they have been responsive but we haven't gotten very far into resolving this issue.

openRTSP dumped the RTSP stream ok, where as ffmpeg (head compile 5 days ago) generated a lot of errors to stderr/stdout.

I will perform the test recommended by cehoyos, and post the results tomorrow. Alternatively, if you believe this to be unrelated, I will open another ticket.

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by bovine

cehoyos, I have run your requested command (with extra logging verbosity) to capture some new video and there are still many decoding errors.

andrewc, in fact my camera is also a "Geovision GV-FE420" fisheye camera. Are these log error messages similar to what you see?

bovine, yes pretty much the same errors. I've recompiled ffmpeg from head and tried again, same result shown below:

I have just acquired a GV-MFD110 and that seems to work ok. So the issue is possibly specific to the GV-FE420.

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by bovine

andrewc: offtopic, but i see you are also trying to use zoneminder! In case you have not figured it out yet, zm currently only supports Basic authentication for RTSP, but the GV-FE420 seems to require Digest authentication. I am in the process of trying to patch zm. (I don't understand why zm didn't just use libavformat for RTSP/RTP since they are already using other parts of ffmpeg.)

comment:9 in reply to: ↑ 7 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

I have just acquired a GV-MFD110 and that seems to work ok.

Does playing a captured file work for this model?

comment:10 Changed 5 years ago by andrewc

bovine: thanks for the heads up. I didn't realise that digest auth was being used (and that zoneminder doesn't support it)! I sidetracked the issue, by using the 'ffmpeg' option in zoneminder to grab the stream.

Does playing a captured file work for this model?

cehoyos, my earlier description of 'seems to work ok' wasn't very specific. Let me elaborate: It seems to be working fine in zoneminder. I can see the stream in my webbrowser, although there are the occasional visual glitches (every 5 or 10 minutes, somewhat random), which look like they resolve when a keyframe comes along, so I suspect the decoding is not 100% reliable. I think the glitches are more prevalent around areas of motion and when there is more motion being captured.

I tried dumping the stream again (and again... and again) and everytime the result was a slightly different set of errors.

Run 1: I cancelled after a 10-20 seconds:

NB, /tmp/fishburn.avi was not created! (I'm not quite sure why, I would have expected at least an empty file) and this was the first time I received the _corrupted macroblock_ error with this cam.

So it looks like the same issue as the Fisheye cam. Perhaps the issue is not as pronounced in zoneminder because of differences in resolution, framerate etc.

comment:11 Changed 5 years ago by uscgraphics

I got the same problem using Axis P1311/P5534-E/Q1755 latest v5.2 firmware

ffplay rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/axis-media/media.amp

will see lots of errors (see below), the display image is partially corrupt.
This happens even in the same sub-net without UDP blocking. But if I use

ffplay rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/axis-media/media.amp?http
ffplay rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/axis-media/media.amp?tcp

it works fine.

Worst of all, my program will crash at
av_close_input_file(ic);
whenever the error occurs. Try to catch the crash with _set_se_translator
fail either.

If you need login to reproduce the bug please send me email.

comment:12 Changed 5 years ago by Ph0t0n

Hey I'm pretty sure I figured out why these RTP streams are getting corrupted when in UDP mode (which is the way RTP was intended to function!). If you set the loglevel to debug, and then set the queue size (max_delay), and do a very simple loop like:

while (1) {

av_read_frame(ctx, pkt);

}

then you'll see errors like:

[mpeg4 @ 0037b6a0] RTP: missed 3 packets
[pcm_mulaw @ 0037d980] RTP: missed 5 packets
[mpeg4 @ 0037b6a0] RTP: missed 1 packets
[mpeg4 @ 0037b6a0] RTP: missed 1 packets
[mpeg4 @ 0037b6a0] RTP: missed 2 packets
[mpeg4 @ 0037b6a0] RTP: missed 1 packets
[mpeg4 @ 0037b6a0] RTP: missed 3 packets
[mpeg4 @ 0037b6a0] RTP: missed 1 packets
[pcm_mulaw @ 0037d980] RTP: missed 3 packets
[mpeg4 @ 0037b6a0] RTP: missed 1 packets
[mpeg4 @ 0037b6a0] RTP: missed 1 packets
[mpeg4 @ 0037b6a0] RTP: missed 4 packets

You can also get the above errors plus the mpeg4 decoding errors that you guys are seeing by using ffplay. The mpeg4 errors will be red, and the rtp missed packets will be yellow. Here's an example using a camera in Boston:

ffplay -max_delay 50000 -sync video -loglevel debug rtsp://128.197.178.104/mpeg4/media.amp

Much older version of ffmpeg didn't have this problem, however they instead had a different problem where they would timeout after a couple of minutes because they weren't responding to a ping or something.

Ok so now for the "solution"...

The problem is in libavformat/udp.c . Someone added code that uses a pthread and a circular buffer when reading from a udp socket. There is a bug in that code - I don't know exactly where. The circular buffer/thread code is only executed if pthreads are enabled. So if pthreads are disabled, then the "backup" code runs. If you comment out the sections within HAVE_PTHREADS, magic happens... no more mpeg4 macroblock/missing packet errors!!!

I don't know how important that circular buffer/thread code is. Most of us probably don't want to disable pthreads for everything just to fix this one problem. Do we really need this circular buffer code since it seems to work fine without it? Or should we try and fix it? I'm a noob when it comes to the code in udp.c, so fixing it would be a lot easier for someone more familiar with it.

Could you test if this problem is still reproducible with latest git head?

comment:14 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by uscgraphics

I just try the build from 7/31/2011, it no longer crash at
av_close_input_file()

that's great. However decoding UDP packet still got the same error
and corrupt images.

Another problem I have is rtsp:// doesn't support any port number other than 80
for tcp and udp (http works fine). e.g.

rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080/axis-media/media.amp?tcp
will return

That means packets are lost somewhere, it can be a bug in ffmpeg but could as well be your network loosing packets, RTP/UDP (compared to RTP/TCP) is not a reliable transport
What makes you belive the issue remaining is not just occasional packet loss?

Another problem I have

Please open a seperate ticket for that

Because it happen in my local network with a router connect 1 computer and 1 camera.

comment:17 Changed 5 years ago by draku1a

andrewc: I am using "Geovision GV-FE420" and have same problem. Can you tell how you solved it?

comment:18 Changed 5 years ago by michael

The original problem was a problem in the interaction between the udp and rtp code this has been fixed months ago, there has been another smaller bugfix in the udp code recently.
And i cannot reproduce any further problems with random rtsp streams
If someone still has issues it might make sense to open a new ticket because these likely are not what this ticket was about. Not every rt*p issue is the same ...

michael is correct - something has definitely been fixed. i just tried git version 2c44aed (from 2011-11-21) and i no longer get errors when using the camera on my local network.

With the cameras on the public internet (like the one in the link from my previous post), errors still occur and I'm guessing it's due to dropped packets. on my 40mbit internet connection at home it gets an error once a minute or so, and on my slow connection at work the error rate is hundreds per minute. the errors that display due to dropped packets are nearly identical to the errors that came from that bug that is now fixed. there's not much that can be done about dropped UDP/RTP packets except perhaps wait longer and buffer more, but even then, that's probably not going to help much.

vlc handles dropped packets differently than ffplay. i think they do more buffering (well you can set the buffer size), and they also drop the entire frame instead of passing a corrupted packet to the decoder. so instead of getting mpeg4 errors and visual artifacts, you get lower frame rates.

in my opinion, live rtsp/rtp over the public internet is too unreliable to be useful. with tcp visual quality is better, but then you get high latency which make video conferencing and live ptz cameras useless. it's fine on a local gigabit network, but for internet that's not blazing fast, good luck!

to whomever fixed the udp/rtp bug: hell yeah, you rock!!!!

draku1a - if you're still having problems after making sure you have the latest version of libav, use wireshark or something and check to make sure your network is reliable. if you're using a fast local network that doesn't drop packets then i have no idea what's going on!

It seems for me at least this issue is not fully resolved with Geovision GV-FE420.

However there does seem to be a workaround. If you've got a GV-FE420 and are still having issues with frame corruption (as I am with ffmpeg 0.10.2) then try prepending ?tcp to the RTSP URL.

eg:

Source Path: rtsp://admin:admin@##.##.##.##:8554/CH001.sdp?tcp (or whatever your username/password is.)

The "?tcp" suffix is an argument parsed and recognized by ffmpeg to not use udp, which currently tends to cause frame corruption due to udp read buffer bug.

From http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php?title=Geovision.

So far it seems to be working for me. Although I still need to test the cam with higher frame rates, which I can only do tomorrow when onsite.

maybe rtsp should default to tcp, these corruptions seem to confuse... ?
