> Hey,
I’m using VCS via Homebrew Install (https://formulae.brew.sh/formula/vcs#default) and since the last update of imagemagick (?) I get dozens of error messages:

>convert: Expected operator at ‘.mean*100’ @ error/fx.c/GetOperator/2408

Confirmed to happen on ImageMagick 7.1 on Linux, the contact sheet is generated but blank frame evasion is skipped

? Task Description

Asked by Bob on the blog

Would it be possible to somehow specify to only screenshot half of the video image (for 180 side-by-side VR videos)?

Or would this require new features to be added to the VCS?

Hi I am trying to thumbnail some HDR content is there anyway to insert ffmpeg filters in
-vf zscale=t=linear:npl=100,format=gbrpf32le,zscale=p=bt709,tonemap=tonemap=mobius:desat=0,zscale=t=bt709:m=bt709:r=tv,format=yuv420p

Thanks

https://outlyer.net/2017-05-26:vcs-1-13-3-released/#comment-32413:

I’m also trying to do some HDR content and pass the -vf info to ffmpeg. I can’t get it to work even using a wrapper script.

It always comes up with awk errors, starting with “unterminated regexp”.

Is there any chance of updating vcs to support manual passing of those -vf arguments to ffmpeg?

HDR content is very common nowadays…

https://outlyer.net/2017-05-26:vcs-1-13-3-released/#comment-32423

I’m using vcs 1.13.2 on ubuntu and ended up doing it by adding the line:

-vf ‘zscale=t=linear:npl=100,format=gbrpf32le,zscale=p=bt709,tonemap=tonemap=hable:desat=0,zscale=t=bt709:m=bt709:r=tv,format=yuv420p’ \

at line 2203, in the ffmpeg_capture() function where it sets the ffmpeg command line options.

Couldn’t work out how to do it with a wrapper script.

Request by Chris Hills

http://outlyer.net/2014-05-18:vcs-1_13_2-released/comment-page-1/#comment-17238:

Thanks Toni. I was hoping I could simply run `$ vcs-1.13.2.bash -? **/*.mp4` to create contact sheets for all videos in all subfolders, but it sounds like I’ll have to use a wrapper script. Would you consider adding this in a future release for a donation?

My reply:

I guess you’re using zsh-ish globbing there.
That’s not something I use so I didn’t even think of the case where recursing could be so simple.
It was a bit of an overlook on my part not to have the option to output to the same directory as the video, probably because recursion always required a wrapper in my head.

1.13.3 Task Description

Submitted by someone desiring no credit.

Here’s a patch against 1.13.2 for mistaken approximate size calculation.

Self-notes about the patch:

  • More accurate rounding → Discarded. I went for rounding by excess
  • Leading 0 in fractionary units was not present in the original → BUG
    Sample: Samsung HD sample, 1080pto720p version

A great utilty... I’ve been using this for a couple of years now (it runs every night as a cron job).
I’ve been looking at cleaning up the output that cron captures from each of its commands and stores as a system email.
I’ve enabled the -Wc option to prevent coloured output. Mostly this works except near the start of the script when it says:
Settings from /home/danc/.vcs/vcs.conf:
bg_heading
This is still shown in green. Bug?

Currently the colour only stops after the option is found.

Second, my dvd-drive is useless atm, but i remember previously piping dvd-ouput from mplayer into ffmpeg via a fifo and finding the info generated to be much better than mplayer-alone – for one thing, it won’t ‘downmix’ 6-channel audio automatically. Don’t know if that would be useful to you. The syntax was something like:-

mkfifo piped.vob &&
mplayer dvd:// -dumpstream -dumpfile piped.vob & \
ffmpeg -i piped.vob

…See what you think…

 174 Bug ReportMedium Video length is checked against mplayer's identificatio ...Closed
100%
1.12.3 Task Description

Internal: Stale code from prior versions, numsecs inside process() uses mplayer’s value instead of the best value to determine video length (and keep or discard timestamps).

As a side-effect, newer code being more strict about array vs string handling can fail easily.

 173 TO-DOLow Switch to Bash 3 Closed
100%
1.12.3 Task Description

Bash 2 syntax has been the norm for most versions (although broken in some).

So far none of the major distributions is using bash 2, bash 4 is already gold but not widely-used enough.

Only a few special purpose/minimal distros like DSL retain bash 2.05b, but vcs requires recent versions of ImageMagick, Mplayer and FFmpeg anyway. I can’t see a reason to retain such backwards compatibility.

Task Description

Original report by Dougn Redhammer

vcs hangs with some RM files.

Tracing shows it gets stuck in mplayer_identify.

MPlayer can play the files fine from the terminal. Although it exits with «MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: uninit_vcodec».

I can reproduce the abrupt termination, it happens when using Real’s native decoder (w64codecs, /usr/lib/codecs/drvc.so). Using FFMpeg’s decoder (MPlayer’s -vc ffrv30) MPlayer exits normally.

I can’t reproduce the hang either way.
