#5963 closed defect (fixed)

Auto-transcode and keyframe/seektable generation

Reported by: nico@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.24
Component: MythTV - Mythtranscode Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: mythtranscode auto keyframes seektable
Cc: Ticket locked: no



I am a UK DVB-T user.

I have setup the DVB Hardware encoders recording profile to do auto-transcode, using lossless MPEG-2 transcoding.

I am doing this for two reasons:

  1. Because I am far from the emiter, even though I have new/clean cabling and connections, a new antenna and a masthead amp, I have MPEG2 glitches that I'd like fixed
  2. because the 20% disk saving is not only a benefit, but also an elegant thing to do

I have setup commflagging to happen after transcode.

So the order of thing happening is in that order:

1 Recording 2 Transcoding 2.1 lossless MPEG2 transcode 2.2 keyframe index generation (what I believe is the seektable generation) 3 Commflagging 4 User jobs if any

The resulting recording has a bad seektable.

I believe that the 2.2 step is being done on the .tmp file generated in 2.1, before the file swap.

Manually running a mythcommflag --rebuild on the recording recovers the seektable correctly.

I have attached a log from Mythbackend. It starts with the end of the recording, and ends with the commflagging.

I am using Mythbuntu 8.10, 64-bit.
