Unable to read video file

Hi guys,

I recorded a video from a live stream, using cocoCut addon for Chrome.

The video file is 2 Gb for 3 hours of video.
Bitrate video: 2 Mb/s
25 fps

Codec: H264 - MPEG4 AVC (part10)(avc1)
Audio: MPEG AAC ( mp4a)

I can’t read this video with Infuse ( last version ) on my ATV4K. No error, but it just “loading” for eternity.

Any idea why?

Thank you

( PS: I can send you the file if needed )

Maybe run it through mediainfo and post the report here to start?

Does it play with other video players?

Hey NC !
Here is the mediainfo report: open

And yes, the video is fine on VLC on my pc.

Thank you

If you can upload the file that would be great!

Any leads about this messy file ? :stuck_out_tongue:

Hi guys, any news please? Di you want me to reupload the file again?
Thank you

The file appears to be malformed as it seems to contain too many ‘mdat’ atoms, which is not common.

We may be able to improve support for files like this at some point, but the changes are non-trivial and there is a moderate risk of breaking playback of other files which are currently working.
