Cc: Blocked By:

Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:

FLV with speex audio fails to transcode to MKV with MP3 audio. (FLVs with nellymoser convert fine, as does stripping the audio track.)

How to reproduce:

$ ffmpeg -y -i example.flv -vcodec h264 -acodec mp3 example.mkv

  • Version changed from 2.2.4 to git-master

You should use -acodec libmp3lame because we don't have an encoder mp3, but this is a bug nevertheless.

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by ghazel

Ah. It seems to guess and use libmp3lame anyway, but I'll start using libmp3lame explicitly.

comment:3 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

I believe that you are only missing --enable-libspeex. Iirc this is a duplicate a a recently opened ticket.

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by ghazel

Recompiling with --with-speex (I used homebrew, so it was "brew install ffmpeg --with-speex") worked great. Thank you!

A more helpful error message would have kept me off the bug tracker.

Replying to cehoyos:

Iirc this is a duplicate a a recently opened ticket.

I was thinking about ticket #3662 but this is probably different.

A patch was sent:
