Description

Summary of the bug:
When i try to split a large flac files with ffmpeg, created chunks still have the large file's duration and sample count.
How to reproduce:

ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -ss 0 -y -i "D:\1.flac" -vn -c:a copy -t 77.222 "C:\1_1.flac"
Exit code: 0

Any update please on codec copy flac duration issue?

comment:5 by martin, 15 months ago

I am facing this same issue:

Input flac File: https://file.io/D1EXEgJ0OtgM

I have a shell script split_by_silence.sh which takes an input audio file, detects split points where silence (or very low volume audio) occurs, and then splits the audio file using ffmpeg into the individual split point segments.

So if 10 split points = 11 audio files exported.

When I run it on an mp3, it produces 11 files (as expected with my input file) and each file has correct length metadata.

But when ffmpeg splits a flac file, the metadata output for 'length' is broken

I've tried following the closest question, marked as a duplicate, here:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/66732630/cutting-flac-using-ffmpeg-does-not-change-timestamps-accordingly

By adding a step to re-encode my flac file in ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -i full.flac -ss 0 -t 2241 fixed.flac

Which I'm not sure if is working, but outputs a fixed.flac file. Which when I run with my split command:

`ffmpeg -i "inputFile.flac" -c copy -map 0 -f segment -segment_times "22,441,5567,1122,etc..." "%d_output.flac"
`

The output files still have broken flac 'length' metadata, like you can see in my image, even though when opened in audacity, the file does have a real length. ffmpeg just encoded the wrong value?

Similar to OP, taking an input flac file -> segment filter w/reset_timestamps -> flac, I have these findings.

Using head, I have observed that when an flac output is generated via the segment filter, the flacenc.c ONLY receives the streaminfo data for the FINAL segment output (the 3rd in my case) and thus the trailer update is never performed all other segment outputs (file 1 and 2 in this case).

Indeed avformat_open_input on the non final segment flacs the AVFormatContext.duration is an invalid value (-9223372036854775808) and the final segment having the same reported duration as the original input file.

An initial look at libavformat/segment.c its not apparent where this bug would exist (if indeed its here) - seg_write_packet does some determination of whether to create AV_PKT_DATA_NEW_EXTRADATA but this is never called for any of the segments so it may suggest additional handling in segment_end but I'd need some guidance on additional work here.
