Description

I think I found a regression in the drawtext filter. If I specify boxcolor=black@0.5 in the command, I used to get a black box with 50% alpha as expected. In an ffmpeg built from git yesterday I am now getting a green box with 50% alpha. Note that if I run ffmpeg without the alpha specifier and just say boxcolor=black then I do get a black box, but the alpha value now gives unexpected results.
I have another (related?) drawtext bug here: http://ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/ticket/737.

It was not a regression, but a bug which survived since the first version (only affecting YUV video), should be fixed in commit:

commit 1858a5c25ee1ccb8089339d20138116a46cc6c77
Author: Stefano Sabatini <stefasab@gmail.com>
Date:   Sat Dec 24 16:17:18 2011 +0100

    vf_drawtext: select YUV color for drawbox() in case YUV colorspace is used
    
    Fix box alpha rendering when a YUV colorspace is selected, in particular
    fix trac ticket #763.

Thanks for reporting.
