#3898 closed defect (fixed)

wtv demuxer returns EOF in the middle of a broken file

Reported by: ramitbhalla Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: avformat
Version: git-master Keywords: wtv
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: yes
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug: This only happens with some recorded files. The issue is no matter how big the original file is (15 minutes to 2 hours), ffmpeg only remuxes about 50% of the file.

I've included the output here, the original sample I have is about 1GB in size. (15 minutes)

How to reproduce:

ffmpeg -i "c:Doctor Who_BBCAHD_2014_08_23_16_58_00.wtv" -vcodec copy -acodec copy test.ts

Any idea why? The original file plays fine.

Just to let you know the same issue is faced with all encoders, handbrake, ffmpeg remuxsupp etc.
However when playing in MCE or WMP it plays fine. So it's likely a video issue but interestingly still why would ffmpeg stop half way through.

comment:2 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm closing this ticket however if you're interested in looking into this (why it plays but not encodes) please feel free to reopen it.

  • Component changed from undetermined to avformat
  • Keywords wtv added
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Resolution invalid deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Summary changed from Remuxing WTV only remuxes about half the file to wtv demuxer returns EOF in the middle of the file
  • Version changed from unspecified to git-master

Seeking allows to play nearly 17 minutes, both ffmpeg and ffplay stop after 8:48,

  • Status changed from reopened to open

Replying to ramitbhalla:

I'm closing this ticket

Why?

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

Since I saw handbrake display the same symptoms, wasn't sure if it warranted a "bug" status.

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

Since the following is not necessarily clear;

  • A file that plays fine with WMP but fails with ffplay (like this one) warrants a bug report.
  • A file that plays fine with WMP but fails transcoding with ffmpeg warrants a bug report.

Both are completely independent of how other open-source tools behave: It makes no big difference if a file plays fine with vlc or MPlayer when you open a bug report on this bug tracker.

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

  • Priority changed from normal to minor

Replying to ramitbhalla:

The original file plays fine.

I am not a native speaker and I probably just misunderstood this sentence.
I would still like to know what you meant.

Marking as minor since there is no application known that behaves better than FFmpeg.

comment:8 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

The file plays back just fine in WMP and MCE, it doesn't stop half way through. So I figured if it can play fine it should also be able to convert/remux. Since FFMEPG failed to remux/convert it I reported it.

Replying to ramitbhalla:

The file plays back just fine in WMP

Which version did you test? It fails here just like FFmpeg but with an OOM failure.

Please comment on ticket #2252, it is very important that you explain the misunderstanding there!

comment:10 follow-up: Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

Windows 7, WMP v12

need some time to look into the 2252 to test it. I don't have any xbox equipment so have requested some folks to test it.

comment:11 in reply to: ↑ 10 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

Replying to ramitbhalla:

Windows 7, WMP v12

Fails here after 8:48

need some time to look into the 2252 to test it. I don't have any xbox equipment so have requested some folks to test it.

You misunderstand: The claim is that FFmpeg from MCEBuddy produces a different output file than FFmpeg from http://ffmpeg.org
Is that true?

comment:12 Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

I don't see why it would which is why I asked for the 2 outputs to compare.

comment:13 Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

BTW you're right about 8:48. I was referring to the ability to skip past it and have WMP play the entire file but I can see, with ffmpeg I can use the -ss to skip past it too.

comment:14 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

  • Summary changed from wtv demuxer returns EOF in the middle of the file to wtv demuxer returns EOF in the middle of a broken file

comment:15 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from open to closed

Fixed by Peter Ross in 9b8eedd7 - thank you for the sample!

comment:16 Changed 5 years ago by ramitbhalla

Thanks @pross, tested and working.
