    I’m a bit new to firefly and not sure what direction to head in figuring this out, so forgive me if this is covered elsewhere. I have over a thousand ogg-vorbis files which are encoded with the 20011231 (1.0 rc3). Anytime any one of these files is transcoded by the Win32 build of Firefly (using the svn-1301 build), the Firefly service promptly crashes with an error in avcodec.dll. As a note of interest, all of the files encoded with that vorbis build have their upper and lower bitrates “not set,” at least according to any vorbis info viewer (i.e., in Winamp). Is there something I’m overlooking? Is this just a bug of some sort? Is there anything I can do, short of reencoding all 1000+ files (which, I’m sure you can imagine, I’d rather not do ๐Ÿ˜€ )? Thanks in advance!

    I have sent a sample file, as requested.

    Just FYI, I tried the latest win32 nightly build today (1311), and it’s still having issues.

    I’ve tested it on mac and linux and the sample you sent me works, I’m going to test it on win32 tonight.

    Just wondering, how’d that turn out? Also, just as an update, and not sure if you’d put a fix for it in there, but I just tested it with 1313, and it still crashes.

    Sure enough, doesn’t work. It crashes inside ffmpeg, though, so it’s going to be difficult to track down. I’ll try and get a newer snapshot and build new ffmpeg dlls and see what that does. We’ll see, though… last time I tried, their cvs was down (and was down for several weeks). Guess it’s time to see if they are back up. The snap I was using was a Marchish snapshot, I think.

    OK, so I can connect to Firefly now from iTunes to test (Yay!); but, alas, tests show it’s still crashing with those OGGs.

    Yeah, I’m waiting for ffmpeg svn to clean up… right now, ffmpeg svn snaps won’t build on win32. There is work in progress to make it build right on win32, and once I get a compilable snapshot, I’ll see if that works.

    It’s been a while since I’d heard anything more on this, so I figured I’d ask again. How’re the ffmpeg fixes coming? I noticed that it looks like there’s been a bit of progress on the official ffmpeg site…

    I’ve got a 1.1 to release for roku, then I’ll take a look at it. Last time I tried as mentioned above, I walked into a giant flamewar about win32-isms in the build tree, and it was ugly, so I let it be, thinking I didn’t want to get in th emiddle of it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    note: I’ve added this as an enhancement request so I don’t forget.
