FFmpeg 4.0+ blocks for Samba URLs

When FFmpeg is compiled with libsmb support, the following command works fine for FFmpeg 3.4.x:

ffprobe -of csv -show_entries format=duration:stream=codec_type,width,height,sample_rate,r_frame_rate "smb://"

The same command for FFmpeg 4.0.x blocks indefinitely.

  • Keywords smb regression added
  • Priority changed from critical to important

Is this issue only reproducible with ffprobe or also with ffmpeg -i smb:// Please test current FFmpeg git head and provide the command line together with the complete, uncut console output to make this a valid ticket.
And please run git bisect to find the commit introducing the regression.

comment:2 Changed 18 months ago by boris-petrov

The same issue can be reproduced with ffmpeg -i, yes. The master branch has the same bug and does not work.

Here is the command line for ffprobe 3.4.2:

(in this case ffprobe has blocked).

I'll need time for the bisect. Will post here when/if I manage to do it.

comment:3 Changed 18 months ago by boris-petrov

Bisecting is hard because all commits before c6558e8840fbb2386bf8742e4d68dd6e067d262e can't be compiled with my version of x264 (it says libavcodec/libx264.c:282:9: error: ‘x264_bit_depth’ undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean ‘x264_picture_t’?. I tried commit 2f96190732d15510ba29471fa45d66841c0c3df1 (which is a couple after the one that fixes x264 compilation) and it was broken. So the issue appears somewhere before that.

You could remove --enable-libx264 for the bisect.

comment:5 Changed 18 months ago by boris-petrov

@cehoyos - obviously. Sorry for me being silly!

So the offending commit is 858db4b01fa2b55ee55056c033054ca54ac9b0fd. I guess that should be enough to pinpoint the problem? Please tell me if I can help more (apart from debugging myself :D)!

Wow, thanks for the immediate support, guys! This patch does fix the issue. It will be in 4.0.3 I guess?

comment:8 Changed 18 months ago by Cigaes

It has been pushed.

Including to branch/4.0, so it should be in the next release. But unless you manage a software distribution, you should not be using releases anyway.
