This demonstrates that this is a legacy error undetected until now.
The Samsung C/D profile simply transcodes the mp2 audio in an mpegts file to ac3 so i do not understand why such a compex ffmpeg command is being applied which causes this error.

its not a complex command line.
ffmpeg.exe -i http://localhost:8902 -y -async 1 -vcodec copy -vbsf h264_mp4toannexb -copyts -acodec ac3 -ab 96k -ac 1 -map 0:1 -map 0:0 -sn -f mpegts pipe:

audio codec is transcode to ac3;
h264 video codec is copied but usually h264_mp4toannexb video filter is needed, to you try to play the file without this video filter on your Samsung device ?

What is your OS? Did you use the ffmpeg version from serviio install package ?

Re: Bad ffmpeg parameter causes transcode failure

I also had problem with this video filter, don't know if the source code was changed, I will try with previous ffmpeg version.

I found this about the ffmpeg video filter:

[Workaround found] Bad ffmpeg parameter causes transcode fai

Hi Illico:
Thanks for the reply. I assume it is an ffmpeg bug and I have used your tip to transcode any online mpegts AVC streams to mpeg2video. I don't think there are many online streams like that but that fixes it.

OK.
we have to wait for a ffmpeg bug correction.

Re: Bad ffmpeg parameter causes transcode failure

HI, this looks like a Serviio bug. The filter is only needed when remuxing h264 from mp4 to mpegts, becaouse mpegts stores the frames differently (annexb) than mp4. Your input container is already mpegts though, so this filtewr is not needed and should not be used.

Yes, looks like a serviio bug for jhb50 files, but for some particular streams (here), filter could also failed
http://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-user ... 05664.html
there is a bug in libavcodec/h264_mp4toannexb_bsf.c when the ctx->length_size == 3 , the filter will report the error "Invalid argument"

Re: Bad ffmpeg parameter causes transcode failure

According to the bitbucket ticket mentioned earlier in this thread, the issue is resolved.

But I am still getting similar errors when remuxing a live HLS stream.

(Due to the short lifespan of a live stream it may be hard for you to reproduce.)

My SvtPlay Plugin delivers a ContentURLContainer item including the stream url "http://svt13hls-lh.akamaihd.net/i/svt13hls_0@78145/index_6_av-p.m3u8?sd=10&rebase=on&e=9e71786c28188672". The live-flag is set to true.

Serviio then attempts to play the live stream with the following command:

  Code:
C:\Program Files\Serviio\bin\\..\lib/ffmpeg.exe -analyzeduration 10000000 -fflags +genpts -threads 0 -i http://svt13hls-lh.akamaihd.net/i/svt13hls_0@78145/index_6_av-p.m3u8?sd=10&rebase=on&e=9e71786c28188672 -y -copyts -c:v copy -bsf:v h264_mp4toannexb -c:a copy -map 0:0 -map 0:1 -sn -f mpegts pipe:


Here is the output from ffmpeg (when attempting to redirect the stream to disk rather than to pipe it):

Failed to open bitstream filter h264_mp4toannexb for stream 0 with codec copy: Invalid argument

[Many lines identical to the above]



This is using the latest zeranoe ffmpeg static 64 bit.

In the bitbucket ticket you mention that the h264_mp4toannexb filter is only needed when remuxing from mp4 to mpegts. I am not sure what container the original stream is. But if I remove the h264_mp4toannexb filter from the ffmpeg command the resulting .ts-file is playable in VLC.

Any thoughts?

Re: Bad ffmpeg parameter causes transcode failure

Yes it looks like the bug is not fixed. Another user in the SOPCAST thread also questioned it and said it would only work with my workaround for this 1.0.1 bug.

I'll reopen the ticket with a pointer here. ..looks like you did that already.

Illico,

It seems you won't have to transcode the HLS stream in version 1.2 of Serviio.

Until then, if you want to remux rather than transcode, you will need to use a ffmpeg wrapper which removes the faulty option before calling the proper ffmpeg binary. Of course, using such a wrapper will mean that your will not be able to serve up proper .MP4-files.

I have not had time yet to test the 1.2 beta version...I will check soon. Thanks.

I'm still waiting for instructions on where to get the beta version :-)

At the moment, I'm only drawing conclusions from this bitbucket ticket:
