read_intervals parameter in ffprobe skips comma separated intervals

Reported by: zeco Owned by:
Priority: important Component: ffprobe
Version: git-master Keywords: regression
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:

As of current versions (tested with ffmpeg 4.2.2), giving ffprobe a comma-separated list of intervals using the -read_intervals parameter will only yield results for the first given interval, while the rest of the list is skipped.

In earlier versions (tested with 3.2.14) ffprobe -read_intervals did process all the given intervals, conforming with the parameter's current documentation.

I can try to pinpoint the first affected version between 3.2.14 and 4.2.2 closer if requested.

How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg-3.2.14/ffprobe -read_intervals 10%+#1,20%+#1,30%+#1 -show_entries frame=pkt_pts_time -v error test.mp4

% ffmpeg-4.2.2/ffprobe -read_intervals 10%+#1,20%+#1,30%+#1 -show_entries frame=pkt_pts_time -v error test.mp4

Built on intel + arm.

Specifying time codes as end positions instead of a packet count (+#1) has no effect on the issue either.

Is the issue you see reproducible with current FFmpeg git head, the only version supported on this bug tracker?

Please provide the command line you tested with default or higher log level together with the complete, uncut console output to make this a valid ticket.

The issue is reproducible with the current FFmpeg git head (commit #ba0d785).

Here is the unabridged output from the same command as above (minus -v error for default log level) given to the current git head's version of ffprobe:

% ffprobe -read_intervals 10%+#1,20%+#1,30%+#1 -show_entries frame=pkt_pts_time test.mp4

The output should resemble what was shown with FFmpeg 3.2.14 above, i.e. there should be data for 3 frames.
