Description (last modified by Kyle)

According to https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ffmpeg version 4.2.4-1 is supported for Ubuntu The Focal Fossa and version 3.4.8-0 is supported for Ubuntu The Bionic Beaver

I have command that may need to run in both environments that involves a drawbox with thickness=[max or fill]
In 4.2.4-1 'fill' works but 'max' does not.
In 3.4.8-0 'max' works but 'fill' does not.

https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-all.html#drawbox calls for using 'fill' but it does not work for 3.4.8-0

Sample command:

ffmpeg -i /tmp/ffmpeg/trans.m4v -vf "drawbox=color=black:thickness=fill" /tmp/ffmpeg/output_1.mp4

or

ffmpeg -i /tmp/ffmpeg/trans.m4v -vf "drawbox=color=black:thickness=max" /tmp/ffmpeg/output_1.mp4

Running with fill on 3.4.8-0 gives output:

Component: undeterminedavfilter
Keywords: thickness fill max removed
Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed
Version: 4.2.4unspecified

Please understand that only current FFmpeg git head is supported on this bug tracker.

Using max was a bug, it was therefore replaced with fill in b3cb9bd43fa33a8aaf7a63e43f8418975b3bf0de
