Description

Summary of the bug:
How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -i "Job2_Source.mpg" -vcodec utvideo -an "Job2_Temp.avi"
ffmpeg version N-73361-g03b2b40
built with gcc 4.9.2 (GCC)

Using this input file (MPEG VCD file)
https://www.spiritualselftransformation.com/files/media-encoder-old.mpg

The conversion to AVI works but is slow and keeps throwing the error "Past duration 0.999992 too large".

Converting with build N-67118-g08e6832 works fine and is about 3x faster.

Here's the full console output.

  • Version changed from unspecified to git-master

I did a benchmark using the file provided, and nowhere do I notice a "3x" slowdown.

Here are the results using the time command:
N-67118-g08e6832:
ffmpeg -i media-encoder-old.mpg -vcodec utvideo -an media-encoder-old.avi 10.50s user 0.72s system 309% cpu 3.621 total

git-master:
ffmpeg -i media-encoder-old.mpg -vcodec utvideo -an media-encoder-old.avi 10.53s user 0.70s system 329% cpu 3.406 total

Furthermore,
check with hex editor reveals that encoding has not changed, i.e output files are practically identical.
Thus, there is no defect in the output produced.

Note that this past duration thing is a warning,
so if there is any slowdown, it could be due to the I/O for the warning, though I highly doubt that.
This may be disabled easily with e.g -loglevel -quiet.

Could you give more detailed benchmarks in order to substantiate your claim?

OK I've done the benchmark. 10 seconds for the old version and 17 seconds for the new version.

Here are the screen captures

New

You're right, it's not 3x slowdown :)

As my comment above indicates, I get nowhere near that level of difference between the two cases with the file you uploaded. Was this test with a new file? If so, please provide the file. Also, it would be helpful if you could try disabling the log as I mentioned above and reporting your results.

comment:4 Changed 4 years ago by MysteryX

Interesting. With the original video file, I get 22sec with log and 11 sec with -loglevel quiet

  • Component changed from undetermined to ffmpeg
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

I guess we can confirm that slowdown is due to the I/O for the warnings.
This issue originates in commit 7b32856011d1859a974b884f76bd17b7a7fdab76.
I do not regard it as a bug; the encoding is identical, and encoding speed is identical
before and after this commit.
The warning is perhaps annoying, but is quite rare and occurs for a reason described in the commit
message. Moreover, it may be easily disabled as I described above.

Unless you can give a solid justification as to why this warning is incorrect,
this ticket should be closed.
For now, I will close it as won't fix; reopen if you find such a justification.
