FFMpeg 3.1.1 doesn't pass any options to x265 2.0 when using x265-params

Reported by: birdie Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: avcodec
Version: git-master Keywords: libx265

Summary of the bug:
How to reproduce:

$ ffmpeg -i 1.mkv -c:v libx265 -preset placebo -x265-params crf=22:rdoq-level=1:merange=40:ctu=32:max-tu-size=16:no-sao out.mkv

The resulting file has a different CRF, different rdoq-level, merange, ctu, etc. etc. etc. :

Perhaps it's a dupe of bug 4284 but this time everything is even more broken.

Another critical issue is that unknown parameters are simply ignored. They are not reported, they don't cause termination or anything - that should be fixed as well.

comment:2 Changed 2 years ago by cehoyos

  • Keywords libx265 added; x265 removed
  • Priority changed from critical to normal

Please test current FFmpeg git head and provide the command line that allows to reproduce the issue together with the complete, uncut console output to make this a valid ticket.

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

If it's so difficult for you to run a single command to see the results immediately, just don't bother. No, git head doesn't have any changes in regard to parsing x265 arguments (I've just checked the last three months of the commit history) - it's pointless to test it.

comment:4 follow-up: Changed 2 years ago by easyfab

You must speficy a value for each parameter.
You can't set just no-sao but no-sao=1

It should work fine with that.

Replying to easyfab:

You must speficy a value for each parameter.
You can't set just no-sao but no-sao=1

It should work fine with that.

All other arguments are ignored as well as seen in the output:

Input : crf=22:rdoq-level=1:merange=40:ctu=32:max-tu-size=16
Output: crf=28 rdoq-level=2 merange=92 ctu=64 max-tu-size=32

Frankly speaking I don't know what to add.

  • Resolution changed from wontfix to worksforme

Works for me after adding the value 1 to no-sao, and also after removing the parameter altogether.

Thanks for testing, I will try to use x265 as an external library then. I really don't understand why it works for you and doesn't work for me.
