#4187 closed defect (wontfix)

PSNR filter not returning error with different input formats

Reported by: govind Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: avfilter
Version: git-master Keywords: PSNR
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no


I am expecting the psnr-filter to return with error message "Inputs must be of same pixel format." if I try to run it on two inputs with different pixel format. But it is going ahead with the processing.
I don't know if this is the default behavior. But even if one of the input, again it is not sure which one, is undergoing reformatting before being fed to the psnr-filter, shouldn't it warn user about what is happening internally?

How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -f rawvideo -s:v 1280x720 -pix_fmt yuv422p -i input1.yuv -f rawvideo -s:v 1280x720 -pix_fmt yuv420p -i input2.yuv -filter_complex psnr -f null -

Please always add the complete, uncut console output if you open a ticket on this bug tracker.

From a quick look, the psnr filter does print an error if it is called with two streams with different pix_fmts but this is not the case when using ffmpeg: It makes sure that a common pix_fmt is chosen and the console output should show this.

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

ffmpeg picks format and there is nothing that can be fixed from filter level.

Actually, there is. Look for “if pix_fmt is a single +” in the documentation.
