#14 closed defect (worksforme)

ripping to divx with mencoder gets stuck in loop and fills hard disk

Reported by: ocallaghd@… Owned by: alex@…

hardware = sun ultra 10 with solaris 9
using mplayer 1.0pre4-2.95.3 built by

I've tried the using the example command from the manual:
mencoder dvd://1 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=1 -oac copy -o
mencoder dvd://1 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=2 -oac copy -o

I'm finding that mencoder just goes into a loop and will continue until
the hardisk is full (produced a file bigger than 35gig).
i've tried a couple of different dvds with the same result.
Is this just a feature with the csw build or generally with a sparc with
this version.

I had no problems ripping with the prev version of mplayer 1.0pre3 (it
was just slow).

I have no idea what could cause this, but pre4 is really old. If you try latest
CVS and also provide a gdb backtrace (compile with --enable-debug!) from the
point where you cancel mencoder, you have a bigger chance of getting this fixed.

With this little info it is impossible to fix, so unless you provide more
information I will change the status to WORKSFORME in one week.
