vcodec copy fails with H264 stream from AVCHD container

Description

I have a Canon HF G10 camcorder, which saves 1080p25/1080i50 H264+AC3 data streams in an AVCHD container.

When attempting to copy the streams into an mp4 (or mov, but not mkv) container, ffmpeg is failing with a 'non monotonically increasing dts' error message before writing the first frame. I'm on Mac OSX 10.6, I've tried both ffmpeg 0.8.0 (compiled by Homebrew) and 0.8.2 (compiled by ./configure && make).

commandline + output:

$ ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -i 00167.MTS -vcodec copy -acodec copy 00167.mp4

AVCHD file causing 'non monotonically increasing dts' error with -vcodec copy

comment:1 Changed 5 years ago by damian0815

-- I forgot to state that the video 00167.MTS was recorded at 1080i 50fps 'FXP' quality (17Mbps). I didn't try other quality/FPS settings.

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by damian0815

-- Also note that -vcodec copy to a Matroska mkv stream doesn't trigger the error. Could it be related to AVFMT_TS_NONSTRICT ?

  • Priority changed from important to normal
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Version changed from 0.8.2 to git-master

Do you believe this is a regression?

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by damian0815

I don't think so -- some casual googling seem to show up long-standing issues with -vcodec copy and h.264 B-frames (which are present in the provided 00167.MTS).

I have the same problem with the "JVC Everio GZ-HM650" at XP recording mode, 1920x1080 pixels, Average Approximate 17 Mbps.
FFMPEG build: N-32023-gf138c7f

Not working:
ffmpeg -i 0001.MTS -vcodec copy -acodec copy out/0001.mp4
but when transcoding like:
ffmpeg -i 0001.MTS -vcodec libx264 -acodec copy out/0001.mp4
it Works.

I will add a small sample file later on.

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by damian0815

I've discovered that ffmbc http://code.google.com/p/ffmbc/ can do this out of the box (tested ffmbc 0.6):

ffmbc -i 00167.MTS -vcodec copy -acodec aac -ab 256k 00167.mp4

produces an .mp4 that Quicktime is perfectly happy to play. I wonder how easy/difficult it would be to backport ffmbc patches to ffmpeg?
