Severity: grave

Hi Paul,

A data point for your autopkgtest BoF ;)

With the upload of ffmpeg 3.3, the winff autopkgtests are now failing on with the following error:

[swscaler @ 0x55a0e475e5c0] deprecated pixel format used, make sure you did set 
range correctly
[AVFilterGraph @ 0x55a0e4734160] No such filter: 'asyncts'
Error reinitializing filters!
Failed to inject frame into filter network: Invalid argument
Error while processing the decoded data for stream #0:1
Conversion failed!
autopkgtest [15:42:41]: test check-presets: -----------------------]
autopkgtest [15:42:41]: test check-presets:  - - - - - - - - - - results - - - 
- - - - - - -
check-presets        FAIL non-zero exit status 1

This is explained in the ffmpeg upstream changelog:

  version 3.3:
  - Removed asyncts filter (use af_aresample instead)

I've confirmed that this autopkgtest is testing the same presets.xml which
is installed by winff in the winff-data package, so it appears that this
will genuinely cause winff to fail at runtime (i.e., this is not just a bug
in the test).  I'm therefore marking it 'grave'.  Feel free to downgrade if
you think this is wrong - it looks like only the presets for three Nokia
devices are affected.

I would tag this bug 'sid', except that since autopkgtests don't gate
testing in Debian, this autopkgtest regression does not stop the new ffmpeg
from migrating to testing and breaking winff there.

I don't know the fix for this issue, as I'm not conversant with ffmpeg and
so am not sure how to map the existing asyncts filter settings to the
recommended af_aresample filter.  There does not appear to be a fix upstream
for this yet in the winff github repo.

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
