failure to extract DVB-Teletext track (zero-length file)

Description

So I have two sets of transport stream files, one with a DVB-Sub subtitle track and one with a DVB-Teletext track. In both instances, there's an audio track, a video track, and a data track and ffmpeg recognizes all of them correctly. What I'd like to do is extract out just the data track (i.e. strip out the audio and video tracks) for analysis and post-processing.

In the DVB-Sub case, I can do something like this (with both ffmpeg 0.8.4 and the latest git) and everything works as expected:

ffmpeg -i file1.ts -vn -an -scodec copy -f rawvideo dvbsub.dat

When I try to do the very same thing for the DVB-Teletext track, I always end up with a zero-length file. I know there should be data in there, as I've looked at the data PID in an analyzer and can see the content of the teletext payloads. Ffmpeg sees and recognizes the stream as dvb_teletext, but it doesn't seem to want to export it. Similarly, if I attempt to extract just a program (one audio, one video, one teletext subtitle, all using the "copy" codec) from a transport stream with multiple programs, I get audio and video, but a zero-length subtitle track in the output.

  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Version changed from git to git-master

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by reimar

Teletext packets are never marked as keyframes (no idea whether that should be considered correct or not).
You will get data if you use the -copyinkf option.

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

  • Keywords dvbsub added

-copyinkf does not work anymore, afaict.

Possibly related to this problem, reproducible with the sample from ticket #937.
