#12248 closed Patch - Bug Fix (Trac EOL)

livetv transitions demonstrate bad decoder start conditions

Reported by: blm-ubunet@… Owned by: Mark Kendall
Priority: trivial Milestone: 32.0
Component: MythTV - General Version: Master Head
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The picture/decoder breakup on liveTV transitions demonstrates the decoding process is started before SPS is seen (for H264) & probably before SEQ (for mpeg2v).

The code in avfd.cpp seems to bypass the correct decoder start conditions for liveTV. You may not consider that to be a bug. Starting decoder before SPS & SEQ leads to junk picture & unnecessary resolution/aspect changes.

The attached hacked patch makes LiveTV transitions cleaner & liveTV chain play seamlessly. (livetv chain only partial works here before & after this patch, because of LWR patches).

Hi, just FYI - I applied this patch over master and I see noticeable improvement in LiveTV transitions. With this patch - on many tested HD channels - transitions are now practically invisible.
