Problem: avconv crashes while building a video from an image and audio. It worked until a recent update.
(I'll also hang out on IRC in case people need me live.) ---- I am using Devuan-1.0.0-jessie-i386-DVD According to `apt-cache show libav-tools` I have 6:11.12-1~deb8u1 I am trying to do a command like: \rm --force output.mp4 \avconv \ -loop 1 \ -i "image.jpg" \ -i "audio.ogg" \ -shortest \ -acodec copy \ -c:v:1 libx264 \ -profile:v high \ -r 1 \ output.mp4 When running the above and appending `2> foo.txt` I get: https://pastebin.com/5Q9qqCMb - The error seems to happen at different times under the same conditions, though I have not done specific testing to confirm this. - I have tried variations of the above command, with no luck. - I have tried different audio and images, with no luck. ---- I have tried to downgrade: apt-cache showpkg libav-tools I see: 6:11.11-1~deb8u1 .. I didn't take very good notes at this point, but I think I did something like: apt-get install libav-tools-6:11.11-1~deb8u1 apt-mark hold libav-tools ---- I have tried fetching the dependency chain from an old version of Debian, but that was a nightmare that ultimately didn't work out. ---- I have.. tried installing Debian-proper, but good god damn its disk access is busted. A bad scheduler? Well it serves me right. ---- According to old notes, this version worked: 6:11.9-1~deb8u1 .. however, I do not know if a more recent version worked before I noticed this problem. ---- My other thoughts are: - Install devuan_ascii_2.0.0_beta_i386_desktop-live - Install beta packages, if I can be directed to them. - Vary the script and re-test as needed. - Prepare and host this script and specific images and audio so this can be tested by others. - Try to use a different video codec. -- x265 seems to be missing -- I don't really understand any of this. Building the command I'm currently using was trial-and-error from some searching. _______________________________________________ Dng mailing list Dng@lists.dyne.org https://mailinglists.dyne.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/dng
