#9151 closed Patch - Bug Fix (Unverified)

ffmpeg seeking can cause playback exit

Reported by: danielk Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Video Playback Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


When ffmpeg finds a timestamp near the start of a file that is greater than the timestamp it finds near the end of a file during a seek it fails to perform the seek. But it doesn't _just_ fail to perform the seek it also leaves the file pointer at the end of the file so on our next read we encounter an EOF condition.

I'm attaching a patch that handles this failure mode with rollback to the original read position, but ideally ffmpeg would handle this seek.

Four year old ticket likely fixed by one of the ffmpeg syncs since then.
