ffPlay Stats question

Post by poseidon04 »

Hey Guys,

I fully understand that this is a development board, and if there is a better thread to post this topic on, mods please move it at your discretion.

I have a question about the 'stats' available when using ffPlay.exe. First off this isn't part of an application, i downloaded ffMpeg from ffMpeg.org and through the same site found the parameters needed to play a file using ffPlay. So, i'm using a batch to run the following:

ffplay -x 480 -y 270 -showmode 2 -loop 0 Y:\TestVideo\Fill01.mov

once the video starts playing (even though i've decided not to watch the output on screen) i'm monitoring the cmd prompt for stats. Primarily the item i'm looking for is Dropped Frames, as I'm analyzing ffPlay from a network drive. With that said i'm pretty sure the 'fd=' portion of the stats is Frames Dropped, is this correct? And when playing on a loop will this continually augment this fd= number, or when the clip restarts will this number reset to 0?

Thanks in advance!

-Daniel

Also, if anyone can tell me what the following items are that would be great!

A-V: X.XXX

aq= XXXKB

vq= XXXXXKB

sq= XXXXXB
