#3382 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add severity level to ffmpeg log formatting

Description

Summary of the bug:
FFmpeg CLI only uses terminal colors to distinguish between different categories of logging messages. If console colors are disabled or stderr redirected, it becomes impossible to determine the severity of a log event.

How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -i input ... output
ffmpeg version
built on ...

[rawvideo @ 0x9f8c640] Encoder did not produce proper pts, making some up.

I propose changing the format string to produce something like this:
[rawvideo @ 0x9f8c640] [WARNING] Encoder did not produce proper pts, making some up.

Patches should be submitted to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list and not this bug tracker.

I believe an option will be needed to enable this additional output but please send your patch to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list for a proper review.
