NVENC HEVC Stuttering / macroblock display issue on LG TV

Post by Z34 » Mon Feb 01, 2016 4:21 pm

Hi,

I've compiled ffmpeg with nvenc (with sdk 6.0.1) and encoded a sample movie with nvenc_hevc in .TS container (my TV only supports hevc in a TS container...). Plays fine on VLC / PC, but very poorly on that LG TV- the picture is messed up with macroblock issues all over the place and stutters. Tried with X265 with perfect output so not an issue of the TV not really supporting HEVC.

The same sample encoded with nvenc_h264 plays smoothly, no problem. although I've noticed that if I attempt to change the frame rate - r from the original, I get some of the same issues.

Spent weeks trying to resolve / haven't found anything like this on forum and am desperate for any help ...

Things I've already tried:
- resize from 1080p to various lower sizes
- frame rate from 20 fps to 30 fps
- HEVC levels 4.1 to 5.0
- preset ultrafast
- no audio
- lower and higher bitrates 1500k to 16000k
- constant quantizer with -aq
- CRF 10 to 25 (btw that parameter doesn't seem to work)
- set GOP to 250 and tried -bf 0 to 4 (only works with 0..)
- streaming from NAS and USB key ...



command line / console output:

Re: NVENC HEVC Stuttering / macroblock display issue on LG TV

An additional note - I have tried to compare the samples encoded with nvenc_hevc, nvenc_h264 and x265 using a demo version of Elecard StreamEye - there's a lot in there I'm not familiar with but one big difference between the file not working and the other two : the stream structure for the file encoded with nvenc_hevc does not contain access unit delimiters while the others have plenty (one in between each frame). I wonder if it could be a reason for my problem ... but then again maybe not. looks like the only ffmpeg option to set those applies only to libx264 (-aud)...

any idea anyone ? also would you recommend additional forums where to post this ?

Thanks

Resolved thanks to a post on the ffmpeg user mailing list below - recompiling with that enabled Access Unit Delimiters in the stream and the file then played fine on the LG 55EC930V.

Sony reported a similar problem (they cant decode HEVC properly due to no AUD) yesterday to me.
I enabled access unit delimiters (AUD) in NVENC HEVC as below:

nvenc.c

Line:949 /nvenc.c
+ ctx->encode_config.encodeCodecConfig.hevcConfig.outputAUD = 1;

Thank you.
I wonder, does that mean that update will be incorporated into ffmpeg ?
