Quote from: TCmullet on September 21, 2016, 01:23:03 pmI am doing "copy/copy" of Mpeg2 program stream, free format. At a point very early in the show (6 min. into 90 min. show), it gives the ubiquitous "Too short" message.

Do ffplay or mplayer play the video without issues? If it is just one video, please upload a sample from the beginning of the file more or less beyond the spot which makes problems to a publicly accessible service like e.g. WeTransfer. At 5000 kbit/s 250 MiB should be enough, but please check the total bitrate first.

Quote from: TCmullet on September 23, 2016, 12:19:04 amnow I created a new .idx after deleting config2. It still bombs with the error message, "Too short: The video has been saved but seems to be incomplete."
Quote from: TCmullet on September 23, 2016, 12:27:24 amAnother VERY odd quirk about this process of copy/copy of Mpeg2 exists. Normally my .M2TS files do a copy/copy VERY quickly, hundreds of frames per second. When this Mpeg-PS stream copy/copy runs, it starts out very slow, maybe around 40 fps, but by the time the "too short" message happens (which is in both 2.6.8 and 2.6.14), it's gone way down to about 8 fps. WHY?

dd if=/path1/to/the/source/video of=/path2/to/output/sample bs=1M count=250
Quote from: AQUAR on September 23, 2016, 12:54:38 pmA free file splitter like HJSplit would probably work - split the video into small parts (100 MB or so) and keep/post the first part.
