Burn in timecode to video ?

Post by tteam »

Hi all,

I would like to create a burnin timecode to my video but Im not lucky....

I use the latest build of Zeranoe ffmpeg under win7.

here is the command:
ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -vcodec libxvid -b:v 50000k -q:v 1 -vf "drawtext=fontfile=/Windows/Fonts/arial.ttf:x=30:y=30:rate=24000/1001:fontcolor=0x000000ff:timecode='00\:00\:00\:00'" -y out.avi

here is the error:
[Parsed_drawtext_0 @ 00000000003645e0] Could not load font "/Windows/Fonts/arial
.ttf": cannot open resource
Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file
[Parsed_drawtext_0 @ 00000000003645e0] impossible to init fontconfig
[AVFilterGraph @ 000000000035f380] Error initializing filter 'drawtext' with arg
s 'fontfile=/Windows/Fonts/arial.ttf:x=30:y=30:rate=24000/1001:fontcolor=0x00000
Error opening filters!

Any idea?
