ffmpeg failing

Post by Yile » Sat Feb 24, 2018 6:48 am

Downloaded the latest NOOBs installed and updated it. Installed the audio injector package and ran the install script. Test worked fine.

I setup the RPI with the audio injector as the receiver and another RPI as the sender that has a different audio card.

Here is the sender:

Do you know why I get the input/output error?

Okay I ran the setup script and things started working. I am getting periodic glitches in the sound. I get alot of xrun errors:

Just a note, I notice that ffmpeg takes 100% of one of the processor cores on the RPI 3.
I assume that is to be expected... using a Sabrent USB card with this same ffmpeg, I get about 36% utilization.

Hi! same issue here, I test compile FFMPEG manually with optimization and same issue always, second test with Darkice and the same problem.

Using other USB devices works perfect... but with AudioInjector always got Bufferunderrun.

Some advice? @flatmax?

Hi there,

It is possible that the buffer being used is too small. It is likely that with USB there is some buffering provided for you.

While ffmpeg is executing can you probe the buffer size it is using ?

For example :
cat /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/sub0/hw_params

Here is documentation on how to probe /proc/asound to find this information :
https://alsa.opensrc.org/Proc_asound_documentation
