Please add command line (ffmpeg -i file) together with complete, uncut console output.

Does it work if the referenced files are not in an absolute, but a relative path?

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by zhukov

cd '/ds1_z800/444_EXTRA_1/{AD0E35C8-8D66-4DF5-8764-9E1F7FFE6CF6}/'
ffmpeg -i ~/ffmpeg/anonymous_theatrical_ref_1080p_2398_235.qt

same output
is this what you asked for?

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

The reference in the file you posted does not point to a relative location like
"go/from/this/directory/to/the/next"
but an absolute one
"/it/starts/from/root"

The mov demuxer does not support absolute paths because the developers think that would be a possible security issue, but this could be circumvented with a command line switch.

But I wonder if it works with relative paths, perhaps you could also provide the referenced files, that would make testing easier.

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by zhukov

how can it be circumvented?
the following patch helped me

Hi everyone,

I am new to ffmpeg and I recently ran into this same problem. Could some explain how to apply the patch? I am working on a windows static build here.

Thanks
Matt
