Missing audio and subtitle streams in vob file

Description

==Problem==
I want to transcode a VOB into x264 on a headless Debian stable server.
mediainfo reports a number of audio tracks and subtitle streams.
ffprobe (and ffmpeg) reports no audio nor subtitle stream.

I'd like to provide the VOB file but I can't for legal reasons. I tried to cut the file (with dd) to give a "small sample" but ffprobe behaviour seems to depend on the length of the resulting VOB file (with 10MB, all the audio streams are found but non of the subtitles streams for instance; at 500MB, just one audio stream is available).

ffplay can successfully play the file but I am not sure I can actually choose the audio stream I want.

I can provide anything you might consider usefull.

Thanks for your help.

==Important note==
I am sure all the VOB files I concatenated actually contained parts of the movie (all of those were needed otherwise parts of the movie just disappear).
mediainfo reports a menu stream (and that might be the reason why ffprobe reports wrong streams). But as I said, every VOB files I used are needed.

So, if you know any way to extract precisely menu-related stuff from the VOB, please let me know. (I'd like to avoid mplayer or avidemux: those depend on too many useless things like dbus or avahi)

==Software version==
ffprobe 0.8
libavutil 51. 9. 1
libavcodec 53. 7. 0
libavformat 53. 4. 0
libavdevice 53. 1. 1
libavfilter 2. 23. 0
libswscale 2. 0. 0
libpostproc 51. 2. 0
(also tried with ffmpeg v.8.0.1 from Debian unstable, same result with the same files so I reverted)
MediaInfoLib? - v0.7.47

==ffprobe output==
(same result with ffmpeg v. 8.0.1)

Mediainfo output is almost never useful; complete, uncut output of your (failing) ffmpeg command is always needed!

max_analyze_duration reached

This line indicates that you may need to provide -analyzeduration very_big_value to find all streams in the file. For program streams (vob files), I don't think there is a limit on when (= how late in a file) a stream may start, but in general, users expect FFmpeg not to scan a whole file on initialisation.

Please test with -analyzeduration 1000000000, and reopen the issue if it still fails.

I tested with '-analyzeduration 2147484000': no improvement (but thanks for the trick: I'm new to ffmpeg).

That's precisely why I sticked to ffprobe: ffmpeg is great but cannot copy what it cannot see.

How was the 4.77 GiB file produced? My vob files are all <= 1GB.

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by Aztek

I will upload the file this week end: I'm not home and I can't VPN from where I am (nor SSH).

About the VOB files:

1) Orgiginal VOB files were <1GB. It's by design because some platforms can't handle more at once.
2) Usually, those VOB files are split the dumb way : cat WHOLE_MOVIE.VOB | split -b 1g
3) So what I did was using cat PART_{1,2,3,4}.VOB > FULLMOVIE.VOB. I first launched mplayer to make sure the VOB files contained audio/video.
I also tried vobcopy -n 1 -l /dev/sr0 to directly extract and concatenate all the VOB files from the DVD.
4) When I saw this wasn't working, I tried on individual files.
I didn't try ffmpeg on them but ffprobe (if ffprobe is blind, ffmpeg wouldn't see any better I thought).

As you can see, even though all those VOBs contain audio stream, some lack the subtitles and weird errors are given.
That's why I though merging the files woulb be a good idea (and that's also what people seem to do).

Hi there,

It's alright: you can close this ticket if you are not interested in DVD format handling.

mplayer did the trick by correctly extracting the video stream (parts of X11, DBUS and stuff are installed now on a headless server... ugly!)

My guess is that the menu was actually embedded in some VOB files (in this particular DVD in contrast with most of DVDs I deal with): when I played with mplayer the VOB file I created, a menu was displayed (which shouldn't be).

That's a shame ffmpeg can't handle DVD ISOs or "fat" VOB files: I do not know of any almost non fancy dependence-free software that can handle DVD streams and extract them correctly.
Unfortunately, I'm far from being good enough to write something to 'really' solve my problem. So, sorry for just complaining.

Thanks for all and keep up the good work: even with this problem, I did not regret the switch to ffmpeg.

Hello,

Any update on this issue? I see the same issue with one of my VOB file. ffmpeg is reporting as zero audio channels, even though it has 5.1 audio stream.

comment:11 Changed 5 years ago by streamingguy

Hello Aztek,

Are you able to solve this issue? I tried several encoders in past 2 months and Handbrake is the only one, which is working fine. All others are reporting zero audio channels OR no audio stream.

Replying to streamingguy:

I see the same issue with one of my VOB file. ffmpeg is reporting as zero audio channels, even though it has 5.1 audio stream.

Please provide a ffmpeg command line that allows to reproduce your problem (no external libraries please if not necessary to reproduce) together with complete, uncut console output.
A sample might be needed, too.

comment:13 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by Aztek

Hi streamingguy,

This issue is related to the way the VOB files were created. Namely, menus, bonuses and other non-audio/video stuff were merged in the VOB files in such a way that they can't be easily extracted (for instance menu-related stuff is scattered throughout the first VOB files and the player has to "jump" to play it). If you want convert such a VOB file, you must use a software that is fully aware of the DVD format. ffmpeg only handles audio/video VOB files, not DVD files. That's it.

If you want to convert your "fat" VOB files to something else, dump the stream of interest with some DVD-aware program such as mplayer: mplayer fully understand VOB format and doesn't assume VOB == audio/video.

comment:14 in reply to: ↑ 12 Changed 5 years ago by streamingguy

Hello,

Thank you for your quick reply! I am very new to FFMPEG and sorry if I miss anything in my below details:

Source: .VOB file extracted from DVD decrypter (first chapter of the movie). This has one video stream, one audio stream (AC3 5.1).

Issue: When I try to encode into any format, it reports 0 channels in ac3 stream and there is no audio track in the output. I tried with directly copying the AC3 stream, encoding AC3 to AAC, using analyzeduration option etc.,

But, the same file is working fine when I use Handbrake, MEncoder.

Source to download: You can download .VOB file here: http://poacric.blob.core.windows.net/$root/TestClip.zip

Command Used: ffmpeg -i d:\testclip.vob -acodec copy d:\ffmpegout.mp4

Console output:

Please let me know, if you need any more information.

I have been searching for a proper encoder from past 2 months and couldn't find a proper solution.

My requirement: I have several DVDs and want to convert them into MP4/M2TS/TS files with 2 audio streams (AC3 5.1 and AAC). Also, want to add watermark on the output. Tried different encoders, but nothing is working as per my requirement.

Thank you for your time!

I see the same issue with one of my VOB file. ffmpeg is reporting as zero audio channels, even though it has 5.1 audio stream.

Please provide a ffmpeg command line that allows to reproduce your problem (no external libraries please if not necessary to reproduce) together with complete, uncut console output.
A sample might be needed, too.

Hello Aztek,

Thank you so much for your quick reply and your suggestion. It worked great with mplayer.

But, I also wanted to add watermark to my video, which is not available on mencoder (am I missing something here?). I am using mencoder on Windows platform.

As I mentioned above, my requirement is to convert 100+ of DVDs into MP4/M2TS/TS files with 2 audio streams with watermark. Please suggest me if you have better UI which supports my requirement.

I have tried many encoders and some are having issues with audio, some do not have watermark option, some do not multiple audio stream option (for output) and some are giving audio/video sync issues. We have 100+ encoders on the web, but still couldn't find one with these options :-(

Thank you for your time!

Hi streamingguy,

This issue is related to the way the VOB files were created. Namely, menus, bonuses and other non-audio/video stuff were merged in the VOB files in such a way that they can't be easily extracted (for instance menu-related stuff is scattered throughout the first VOB files and the player has to "jump" to play it). If you want convert such a VOB file, you must use a software that is fully aware of the DVD format. ffmpeg only handles audio/video VOB files, not DVD files. That's it.

If you want to convert your "fat" VOB files to something else, dump the stream of interest with some DVD-aware program such as mplayer: mplayer fully understand VOB format and doesn't assume VOB == audio/video.

Any update on this issue?

Thank you

Just tested with 0.10 build, but still having the same issue. Any update on this issue?

Hello Aztek,

When you get few minutes, could you please update version and component of this ticket? so that it will be addressed by corresponding people easily?

Thank you

@streamingguy:
Why do you think an issue with a vob file that starts with a DVD menu before the actual content (and probably cannot be fixed without special DVD handling, see "DVD reader protocol" on ffmpeg-devel for a patch that may or may not help with the original problem) is related to a vob file with audio that starts late (which is perfectly legal in a vob file, ticket #598 contains a link to a vob sample with late starting subtitles)? Please open a new ticket, use ffmpeg -analyzeduration 2000000000 -i testclip.vob out.wav as command line.

Good to hear mplayer did the trick.

About the decent encoder-thing search: AFAIK, mencoder and a lot of softwares are built on the top of ffmpeg. When you use mencoder, you basically use mplayer to dump audio/video stream and then use the embedded ffmpeg to encode to what you wants.

About the problem with your testclip: there might be no audio because audio stream might show up later in the file (your testclip is only ~1MB long, audio might begin at 6MB). Well, since you said mplayer -dumpstream did the trick, it's no problem anymore.

About the watermark: please keep in mind this is annoying to see. There is an how to there : http://www.idude.net/index.php/how-to-watermark-a-video-using-ffmpeg/

If you want to keep credit for a video, update metadata of your file: people won't bother to change it afterwards.

Offtopic: streamguy, a bugtracker is not a forum: folks receive e-mails each time you post something and post such as "Any update ?" are useless (you don't give any extra information). Saying that the method did not work IS an interesting extra piece of information. I understand that "bumping" might be tempting but, unlike forums, every open threads are reviewed once in a while. Don't take this wrong: it's great that you try to help to enhance the software by reporting bugs! I'm just telling you to be a bit patient.

Unfortunately, that is not entirely correct:
MEncoder does have features that are not yet present in FFmpeg, but MEncoder is not actively maintained, meaning many bugs will likely not be fixed while FFmpeg is actively maintained, and reporting bugs often leads to fixes.

About the problem with your testclip: there might be no audio because audio stream might show up later in the file (your testclip is only ~1MB long, audio might begin at 6MB).

The sample does contain audio, FFmpeg does not see it because audio starts several seconds after video (which is perfectly ok for a mpeg/vob file).

Thank you for your reply cehoyos!

I will open the new ticket and provide my issue details. I tried with 2000000000 analyze duration and still can not get the audio in my output.

Thank you again for your time!

Hello Aztek,

Thank you for your reply! We are trying to encode for some commercial purpose and hence want to use the watermark/logo.

Thank you for clarifying about this bugtracker. I tried with many encoders from past 2 months and stuck with my encoding task. Hence, I thought of bumping it so that somebody will see it easily.

Thank you once again!

It is possible that the original problem can be solved with "-probesize 2G -analyzeduration 2G".
