Description (last modified by cehoyos)

My source video is here: http://www.capsubservices.com/files/Webcast%20--%20New%20Media%20Files/Test%20for%20Quicktime%20608%20CC%20file.mov

I'm testing copying all streams from the input to the output with -map 0 -c copy. The output plays ok in VLC, but when opened in QuickTime? I get a 'An invalid public movie atom was found in the movie' error.

comment:1 Changed 6 years ago by cehoyos

  • Description modified (diff)
  • Keywords mov cc added

Isn't this a feature request for reading CC in mov?
I may be wrong but I suspect that writing unknown codecs to mov is not guaranteed to work.

Or is the problem also reproducible with -sn (or not reproducible with -acodec aac -vcodec mpeg4 -scodec copy)?

comment:2 Changed 6 years ago by dericed

Then perhaps two requests.

  1. bug, FFmpeg produces a QuickTime? file with invalid public movie atom
  2. request, FFmpeg support reading or copying c608 subtitle tracks.

With "-map 0 -sn -c: copy" the output file works fine in QuickTime? though though without the subtitle/caption track.
With "-map 0 -c:a aac -c:v mpeg4 -c:s copy" I get similar results to my initial output and the same invalid atom error.

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by cehoyos

  • Priority changed from normal to wish
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Summary changed from 'invalid public movie atom' when copying streams into a QuickTime file to Closed Captioning in mov
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by reimar

Seems I forgot to update this. Recognizing and demuxer CC data in Quicktime is supported (as can be verified with e.g. MPlayer), however neither decoding it (e.g. into text) nor muxing it into anything at all is implemented yet.

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

  • Component changed from undetermined to avformat
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from open to closed

Remuxing CC is now supported (interestingly, it improves / fixes the timing with MPlayer) as is playback with MPlayer.
