NVEnc on 2020.08.02.1 gives black video - tomek398 - 16.08.2020

Hi 

Windows 10 64bit
Nvidia 1060  451.77

After upgrading Hybrid from Hybrid_2020.06.21.1 to 2020.08.02.1 NVEnc (both h264 and h265) stopped working properly. Output video is black. Audio is OK. Size of the output file seens to be OK. I returned to 2020.06.21 and it works again. 

I use ENEnc to archive my videos from GoPro using h265 and Constant Quality 35

Thanks
Tom

Since x264, x265 and NVEnc all fail my guess would be that it's a problem with the decoding.
In case you use Avisynth or Vapoursynth it might be a bug in the SourceFilter if you don't use either of them then it might be a problem with the libav or ffmpeg. In case hardware decoding is used, it might also be a problem with the drivers (complete deinstallation and a clean install might help then).
1. Would need a debug output to see what the decoder call and potentially used scripts looks like.
2. Would need a small sample with which you can reproduce the problem so I can see if I can reproduce this problem here.

Thank you for your quick reply. 

I don't use Avisynth  or Vapoursynth. I just need to reduce size of the video files. I've sent you link to input file and two output files:
1. Encoded with x264. No debug file
2. Encoded with NVEnc (h265) together with debudg file. 

Version 2020.06.21 still works well.

Tom

all ran through without any errors.


I first reencoded just the video and everything worked fine, but when I added the audio the video wasn't visible any more.
-> So, yes I can reproduce the issue.
Strange thing is this also happens when using another audio encoder (like NeroAACEnc, FHG or Qaac)
Okay, it seems to be an issue with current MP4Box, using FFmpeg as muxer (Config->Output->Container settings->Mp4 Settings->FFmpeg instead of MP4Box), does seem to fix the issue.

-> Okay so as a workaround you can use FFmpeg for muxing. I also could reproduce this with another video source.
I'll look into it some more today after work and look into a proper fix. My guess is that the gpac folks (mp4box developers) broke something, so I'll try to figure out when and where they broke it and report it to them.

Ps.: did have time to look into when the gpac folks broke it, but I created a issue entry in their bug tracker: https://github.com/gpac/gpac/issues/1576

Thank you very detailed description. For me the best workaround it to use version 2020.06.21

Do what you want, but be aware, that I only help with support for the latest version. Smile
You could also simply copy the MP4Box.exe from the 2020.06.21 build and copy it into the 2020.08.02.1 build.

Enabling "Config->Output->Mp4 Settings->Force HEVC tag" and setting it to hvc1 seems to work for me too.
So this might be a bug in libav and not in MP4Box, using '-brand hev1' works using '-brand hvc1' doesn't.

Will send you a link to a dev version via PM (in a few minutest) which by default will use 'hvc1' as brand which should help with the issue.

OK, I Understand. Is there any downside of using FFmpeg instead of MP4Box?


RE: NVEnc on 2020.08.02.1 gives black video - Selur - 17.08.2020

Some NLEs like MP4Box and some like FFmpeg generated MP4 files more.
