Hi Team,

I was trying to get some information on the following files on a linux box, some files are failing to provide any information, whereas the same set of file when tested on windows worked perfectly fine.

ffmpeg -i filename

This is a sample output for error case:
[root@d-27539 tmp]# ffmpeg -i vx_mp_9.wav

vx_mp_9.wav: Invalid data found when processing input

On windows I am using the following version of ffmpeg: [ffmpeg version N-31548-g78accb8]. Need to understand why such a behaviour on changing OS.

  • Component changed from FFmpeg to undetermined

Please add output of ffmpeg -i vx_mp_9.wav for a working version.

Hi Cehoyos,

It was a mistake from my end for Parsing audio. I was using different encodings in different systems for generating audio, switched to ISO-8859-1. FFMPEG is responding correctly to this audio.

You can mark this as an Invalid bug.

Is there any software that can read the sample you uploaded?
If yes, please consider reopening this ticket as a feature request.

Ok will check in multi media players, if any player is able to play will reopen with necessary details.
