Description

Hi,

I just found out the hard way that -dumpaudio doesn't actually produce a playable file. I wanted to dump a WMA stream from the net and much to my surprise, I couldn't play it afterwards. I think that this should at least be mentioned in the documentation of the -dumpaudio option (and -dumpvideo, if it applies there too).

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

RTFM:

-dumpaudio (MPlayer only)
Dumps raw compressed audio stream to ./stream.dump (useful with MPEG/AC3,
in most other cases the resulting file will not be playable).

I filed this Bug against 1.0rc1, and it doesn't say anything like that in that version's man page (at least not in the man page that comes with Debian Unstable). Therefore, this bug shouldn't be marked invalid, but fixed. Please RT right version's FM next time yourself.

We do not accept bug reports against outdated releases for precisely this reason, MPlayer changes much too fast. Outdated meaning older than a week or so. Neither do we accept bug reports on packaged versions of MPlayer. If you have found something you consider a bug in Debian's MPlayer package, file a bug with Debian.

Well, as a matter of fact you did accept the report in the first place, even though I filed it for 1.0rc1. If you don't want people to do this, fix your bug tracking system so that it only accepts bugs in HEAD.
