[swscaler @ 0x7f6874063560] deprecated pixel format used, make sure you did set range correctly

How to reproduce:

[swscaler @ 0x7f6874063560] deprecated pixel format used, make sure you did set range correctly

It can be fixed in libavcodec/h264_slice.c - get_pixel_format(...), but I am not sure if such a fix is appropriate

Could you elaborate on how this issue hits you?

comment:2 by Yarosalv Dynnikov, 6 years ago

Well, it is not a major issue, but it's quite annoying since I often reinit the stuff and see a lot of warnings. So I've been thinking about how can I suppress them and found this get_pixel_format function. But now I am confused if it is a good idea to patch it.

Status: newopen

It is now worse since after threading in swscale was done the line is printed 20 times, which may be not thread safe. -v error can be used to supress it.
