Hello Sir, 

We playback the h264 video file by msdk, the video always has damages, but  we playback with  ffplay and gstreamer  without any video damage,  maybe we  need add some setting on MSDK.

Hi Michael,

Although you have solved the problem by fixing your library, the problem still exists: how can Media SDK handle a broken stream, dev team had a reference article in the reference guide:

https://github.com/Intel-Media-SDK/MediaSDK/blob/master/doc/mediasdk-man.md#broken-streams-handling

I hope this will help you in your future product development.

Hi ,


Thank you for posting in Intel forums.

We could observe a similar issue when we tried the steps provided using same input file in Windows. We are checking with the concerned team regarding this. Will get back to you soon on the updates.

Hi Michael,


Thanks for the question and it seems like you are testing our tool for a solid product.


It is understandable that our API should be handle corrupted videos and recover from it. Unfortunately our sample_decode seems not design for this kind of use case.


To help you with the problem, I will contact with dev team. But I think your basic request is,

  • Do we have a sample to show the recovery algorithm?
  • If not, how can we use the Media SDK API to hand the recovery from the corrupted videos?


Can you confirme?


I believe you are using a corrupted video since even I can see the successful playback from FFmpeg, it also reported errors at the failure frames where the Media SDK failed.

Hello Mark, 

"Do we have a sample to show the recovery algorithm?  "

===> Yes

The video maybe distortion for some reasons, we hope the MSDK can do recovery or decode them like ffmpeg or gstreamer

Thanks

Hello Mark,

We got some internal libraries, we have found the root caused and fixed our issue.  

So you don't need provide us the recovery algorithms or do any modified of MSDK. 

Thanks for your kindly support.
