#9214 closed defect (duplicate)

ffmetadata decoding handles lines ending with backslashes incorrectly

Reported by: Michael Lelli Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: avformat
Version: unspecified Keywords: ffmetadata
Cc: Michael Lelli Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:
In ffmetadata files, if a line ends with an escaped backslash the next line return is also escaped when it should not be. This only happens when using Unix newlines (\n). Using Windows newlines (\r\n) does not show this issue.

How to reproduce:
Create this ffmpeg tag file with Unix newlines:


Write, then read the metadata from a file:

ffmpeg -y -i in.mp4 -i meta.txt -map_metadata 1 -movflags use_metadata_tags -codec copy -f mp4 out.mp4

ffmpeg -i out.mp4 -f ffmetadata -

Expected results (and results with Windows newlines):


Actual results:

Nevermind, appears to be a dup of #9144
