Component: Audio & Video/Codecs Version: R1/Development
Keywords: mpeg 4, mpeg4, mpeg-4, mpg4, XVID Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking: #13153
Platform: All


Playing MPEG-4 part 2/XVID movies with MPlayer show the video at dual speed VLC 0.8.6i can't show the movie at all

Mplayer only report: Video: MPEG-4 part 2

VLC 0.8.6i reports: main decoder : looking for decoder module: 21 candidates main decoder : cannot load module `/packages/vlc-0.8.6i-1/.self/lib/vlc/codec/' main decoder : cannot load module `/packages/vlc-0.8.6i-1/.self/lib/vlc/codec/' main decoder : no suitable decoder module for fourcc `XVID'. VLC probably does not support this sound or video format. main decoder : killing decoder fourcc `XVID', 0 PES in FIFO

VLC 0.8.6d is able to play the file without any problems and reports: main decoder : looking for decoder module: 21 candidates ffmpeg decoder : libavcodec initialized (interface 3349504 ) ffmpeg decoder : postprocessing disabled ffmpeg decoder : using direct rendering ffmpeg decoder : ffmpeg codec (MPEG-4 Video) started main decoder : using decoder module "ffmpeg"

Here is two sample movies i found that generates this error: ffprobe: Video: mpeg4 (Advanced Simple Profile) (XVID / 0x44495658), yuv420p ffprobe: Video: mpeg4 (XVID / 0x44495658), yuv420p Info about the file:

Ref: ​

Tested on hrev52003: VLC 0.8.6i & VLC 2.2.8 no longer available and currently non-functional on Haiku. I can review both video files with MediaPlayer or MPlayer. Bug reports already exist for Mediaplayer/Mplayer issues.

Can close ticket as VLC not supported at this time on Haiku.

From ffmpeg samples collection readme:

Please be aware that this samples collection contains a lot of files that are very obscure, broken in various ways or are just simply out of use. Hence, it doesn't make sense to download all of them, unless you are developing a player application that will support all and every file format that was ever conceived.

Should we really waste our time and efforts on these?

Do you have real files actually showing the problem?
