Reproduced by developer: yes Analyzed by developer: yes


Trying to use mencoder as decoder to feed x265 (16bit build) and converting the 8bit input to 10bit output.

I use:

mencoder -lavdopts threads=8 -of rawvideo -o - -ovc raw -demuxer lavf -noskip -vf scale,format=i420,scale,format=420p10le -forcedsubsonly -nosub -nosound "test.mkv"

for the decoder call, problem is it aborts with:

Try appending the scale filter to your filter list,

why have two scales and two formats?

can you use ffmpeg instead ? mencoder is barely maintained for the last 5 years.

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by compn

  • Analyzed by developer set
  • Component changed from undetermined to mencoder
  • Keywords ve_raw added; stdout high bit depth removed
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open

the problem is mplayer/libmpcodecs/ve_raw.c (the file that lists what raw formats can be used for mencoder) has not been updated with the 10bit codecs.

patch welcome.
