Dash manifest: Conflicting stream par values in Adaptation Set

Reported by: cars10 Owned by:

Version: git-master Keywords: dash

Description

Summary of the bug:

We use ffmpeg to generate dash and hls manifest from four different inputs:

  • audio-only m4a file
  • video-only 480p mp4 file
  • video-only 720p mp4 file
  • video-only 1080p mp4 file

This works perfectly with ffmpeg 4.2.x but fails on 4.3 with "Conflicting stream par values in Adaptation Set".

How to reproduce:

We use the following command to create the manifests and stream files:

% ffmpeg -y -i audio_only.m4a  -i 480p_video_only.mp4  -i 720p_video_only.mp4  -i 1080p_video_only.mp4 -c copy -map 0:a:0 -map 1:v:0 -map 2:v:0 -map 3:v:0 -f dash -single_file 1 -single_file_name stream-\$RepresentationID\$.m4s -hls_playlist 1 -adaptation_sets "id=0,streams=0 id=1,streams=1,2,3" manifest.mpd

[dash @ 0x6c94cc0] Conflicting stream par values in Adaptation Set 2

We tried to change the adaptation sets to "id=0,streams=a id=1,streams=v" but that did not help either. Neither the error message nor the source code helped us in understanding what is wrong, so we believe this could be a bug.

"Conflicting stream par values" means there are two or more video streams in the same Adaptation Set with differing display aspect ratio (par). The @par value in the Adaptation Set must apply to all streams.

In your case, the 852x480 stream with a 1:1 sample aspect ratio (sar) has a 71:40 par, which is different than the 1:1 sar 1280x720 and 1920x1080 streams, both of which are 16:9 par, so it can't be in the same Adaptation Set.
A workaround when using 1:1 sar streams would be making the 480p stream have a resolution of 832x468.

Thanks, we will change the resolution of our videos to have the same aspect ratio.

A different error message (basically your explanation) for this would be awesome, i think that most people don't know what "conflicting stream par values" means :)

Given that "par" was often used instead of SAR in FFmpeg (pixel aspect ratio) and that FFmpeg calls the value DAR, there is definitely room for improvement.
