We need a backtrace as per the manual and ideally a sample that exhibits the issue.

Also, please read the ticket howto. Do not set priority or milestone.

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by blammo@…

I can give you the sample -- the first 30 seconds is 57Megs.. where would you like it?

comment:3 Changed 11 years ago by robertm

anywhere you like is fine. Do please provide the backtrace as well.

comment:4 Changed 11 years ago by blammo@…

RobertM, please send me an email, I'll respond with download location.

comment:5 Changed 11 years ago by anonymous

had a friend put it up in a temp location - let me know when you have it downloaded.

Component: MythTV - GeneralMythTV - Video Playback

The sample doesn't cause a crash here with either VDPAU or ffmpeg. We'll probably need a backtrace and more details. Which playback profile are you using? 32bit or 64bit?

N.B. You're not on the -fixes branch

comment:7 Changed 11 years ago by james.vanmetre@…

I am running into the same problem with both the 32 and 64 bit versions of mythfrontend. uname -a Linux myth-dell #1 SMP Fri Apr 30 20:34:53 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Pertinent rpm names are mythtv-backend-0.23-1.fc12.i686 mythtv-common-0.23-1.fc12.i686 mythtv-0.23-1.fc12.i686 mythtv-themes-0.23-1.fc12.noarch mythtv-debuginfo-0.23-1.fc12.i686 mythtv-frontend-0.23-1.fc12.i686 mythtv-libs-0.23-1.fc12.i686

I have uploaded a sample that crashes around the 24 second point here:

And the gdb.txt of the crash is here: -James

Hmm, you are both using 0.23.0 (not 0.23-fixes) with Fedora. Can you both upgrade to the latest version of 0.23-fixes and see if that helps?

At least one crash in AVFormatDecoder was fixed after the 0.23 release and the behaviour I'm seeing with trunk suggests that fix addresses the crash you are reporting. With trunk it doesn't crash @24 seconds, instead there is a temporary glitch consistent with a change in the stream. This was fixed in [24606]

Closing as a duplicate of #8445 which was fixed in [24606]

comment:9 Changed 11 years ago by blammo@…

stuartm -- I realized that the process I used to snip the 30 seconds, ffmpeg, cleaned up the problem in the file.. the 30 second snip doesn't kill the player, but the full video did.. Any suggestions for a "clean" way to snip the first 30 seconds that doesn't re-encode?

comment:10 Changed 11 years ago by robertm

dd if=infile of=outfile bs=1024k count=50

will produce 50 MB...

But we don't need a sample until you have upgraded to current fixes (which you are not running) and reproduced this issue.

sadly, I already deleted the original, thinking I had snipped safely.. :( Thank you for the command, I'll use it next time.

comment:12 Changed 11 years ago by james.vanmetre@…

I removed all of the rpm packages for mythtv and installed .23-fixes like you suggested and that did indeed fix the problem.
