Some Videos Fail to Decode #423
Ran into an issue where some videos (primarily PSP videos from EmuMovies) refused to play using the hardware encoders (VDPAU/VAAPI). The command line showed the messages:
So I assumed there was an issue with the videos themselves and they had something not quite right done during encoding, but FFMPEG seems to think they're fine:
Playing them with MPlayer (using VDPAU) also went without issue...
It does, however, play the sound, there's just no video.
Any ideas what AttractMode in particular may be struggling with here? I can upload an example video if that would help as they're pretty small.
Most likely is that attract mode hasn't implemented the hw accel decoding correctly. I can't find good documentation or examples of how to do hwaccel in FFmpeg and the API seems to always be shifting and changing. I find it a real challenge. I'll plug away at fixing it when I get a chance, however I do find this aspect of the program very frustrating.
