Description Sebastian Heyn 2015-11-03 12:14:23 UTC
I use mencoder to convert a DVD to DIVX. This script has not been altered and I use the following mencoder command line
mplayer dvd://1 -dvd-device ... -dumpstream -dumpfile vid.m2v
mencoder vid.m2v -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=1:v4mv:dia=4:trell:vmax_b_frames=2:vb_strategy=1:autoaspect -nosound  -ffourcc DX50 -o /dev/null
mencoder vid.m2v -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=2:v4mv:dia=4:trell:vmax_b_frames=2:vb_strategy=1:autoaspect -nosound  -ffourcc DX50 -o video0.avi 

I havent used this for a while - so now I keep getting:

[mpeg2video @ 0xb6041400]get_buffer() failed (stride changed)
Error while decoding frame! 

My slackware test system (mplayer 1.1) doesnt have the issue but I cannot compile mplayer-1.1 due to some gentoo-bug.

Any ideas?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to convert mpeg2
Actual Results:  
[mpeg2video @ 0xb6041400]get_buffer() failed (stride changed)
Error while decoding frame! 

Expected Results:  
converting the video
