[Ffmpeg-devel] HDTV-H.264 by BBC not playing
Thu Sep 15 13:57:01 CEST 2005
Hello and thanks for the work you're doing
BBC has launched 2 HDTV testchannels (MPEG2 and MPEG4-AVC) on Astra 23,5?E
some days ago.
I've recorded some of the streams for testing purpose. I can play the
MPEG2-records, but not MPEG4.
I've compiled from cvs source of today both mplayer and ffmpeg, but still no
success with this newest version.
The video stream is in 960x1088 and interleaved. In MPEG2 it's 1920x1080i and
the aspect is 16:9 for both.
I could play the file with Nero Showtime (funny to see a P4 3,4 Ghz being to
slow for video playback...).
As far as I know the MPEG4 encoding for BBC was done by Tandberg, so it should
be valid H.264.
I've uploaded a small sample to
Hope you can test and analyze this. If you've other questions, just tell me!
