"Could not open video codec" in .log

Post by fz1 » Sat Apr 07, 2012 4:24 am

Hi,

Many of my recordings aren't being processed by 81.035. Log below. The command window shows something about "max_analyze_duration" in yellow font, but I can't read the entire error.

80.042 had no problem.

Thanks!

Some recording devices add a substantial amount of empty space in the first part of a recording.
I may need to increase the analyze span to cater for this.
Will see if I can make this user settable.

Could you test build 0.81.036?

Sure, same issue though.

The problem recordings represent a small percentage recorded by my NVidia DualTV from Comcast Cable.

The file you uploaded is processed without any problems.
Did you check it fails to decode?
WHy did you re-encode?

Now I've checked, and the uploaded file does process successfully.

The original .mpg is 500MB. The only way I know to upload the first 50MB is trimming with TMPGEnc. Can you recommend a tool that will trim but not re-encode?

Normally I suggest people to use a regular ftp client (like the windows ftp client) and abort after say 50MByte
Whatever is uploaded will stay on the server
But cutting a part seems easier to understand

Same issue on 81.037 with default .ini, except no max_duration error.

I've now tested with two XP 32 bit machines, same results.

Representative mpg and log uploaded to ftp.

Indeed, weird format.
Will have a look
