Decoding EIA-608 closed captions in MP4 (created by Final Cut Pro) not working

Description

Summary of the bug

I created an MP4 using Final Cut Pro that contains EIA-608 closed captions. (The closed captions are muxed by Final Cut Pro as a separate stream from the video.) I tried playing this file using ffplay, VLC, and my own video application that uses the FFmpeg libraries; the closed captions are not shown.

More specifically, avcodec_decode_subtitle2 always returns 0 into got_sub_ptr.

How to reproduce

Download the attached sample file and then run the following command:

I have also attached an SCC file (generated by Final Cut Pro) that contains only the closed captions.

(I had to cut the video to meet the attachment size requirement, so the duration in the “How to reproduce” section will be slightly different.)

comment:2 Changed 5 months ago by fumoboy007

I forgot to mention that QuickTime? Player is able to display the closed captions. (I am using macOS 10.14.2.)
