I noticed that on startup ogmrip do some mencoder tests.
mencoder -nocache -nosound -quiet -frames 1 -rawvideo pal:fps=25 -demuxer rawvideo -o /dev/null -ovc x264 -x264encopts bime:bitrate=800:threads=1 /dev/zero
to test the "bime" option.
Unfortunatly on my system this command never returns (the CPU starts working 100% on encoding /dev/zero)
I have noticed that changing the command to -frames 0 makes it return immediatly and produce the error excpeted by ogmrip "Option x264encopts: Unknown suboption bime"
It is a bug in ogmrip or is this a problem with my mencoder version?
mencoder: MPlayer SVN-r36533
both installer on debian testing with the deb-multimedia repo enabled
Upgrading ogmrip to 1.0.0-dmo3 seems to help for ogmrip at least. The changelog mentions some obsolete options but nothing about -nosound.
Well, that was a bit premature, autocrop or preview for manual cropping which uses mplayer still doesn't work.
similarly, I have problems with all commands that use the -nosound option of mplayer:
mplayer -nolirc -nocache -nosound -nozoom -nosub -vo jpeg:outdir=/tmp -frames 1 -speed 100 -ss 28 -dvd-device /home/forty/DVD dvd://1
Using -ao null instead seems to make it work.
What is your version of mplayer/mencoder?
This ought to be 1.1.1 + SVN r36533 (i.e. unreleased) as packaged for debian by deb-multimedia.org (I have the same problem)
So, it seems the Fedora package in RPMFusion is affected as well, see
Is there anything I can do to further diagnose the issue?
mplayer version: mplayer-1.1-16.20131125svn.fc20.x86_64
Same on opensuse:
I still don't know what the problem exactly is but I have a workaround. Please try [patches:#41].
Worked for me. Thanks!
