Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This is a question, similar to this one. I've tried following ffmpeg command:

ffmpeg -i "video.mpg" -i "audio.mp3" -t 00:01:35.13 -vcodec copy -acodec copy result.with.sound.mpg

And I've got some sort of output file, which nothing can play.

When executing the command, I've got plenty of messages about buffer underflow and following:

frame=    1 fps=0.2 q=-1.0 Lsize=    4672kB time=00:00:00.00 bitrate=3479365818.2kbits/s
video:909kB audio:3716kB subtitle:0 global headers:0kB muxing overhead 1.021293%

(bitrate=3479365818.2 is probably the reason why the video does not get played).

Both video.mpg and audio.mp3 can be played in a player without any problems.

What's wrong and how can I fix this?

UPDATE

Here's full uncut console output:

see edit........ –  Arsen Zahray Jul 17 '12 at 15:26
    
This output seems garbled. Why would Input #1 (the audio) have a video stream (Stream #1:1)? Anyway, do you need the output to be an MPEG container? Can't you use MP4, or MOV, or MKV? –  slhck Jul 17 '12 at 15:59

Well, then try with MKV and report your results, please. I feel there might be a difference. –  slhck Jul 17 '12 at 17:24

why not try mapping? -i input -map 0:0 -map 1:0 –  Art Shayderov Jul 17 '12 at 17:47

The -map option (link to ffmpeg docs: 5.11 Advanced options) selects a stream from the input file. First you have to specify the input file number, second the stream number.

If -map is not specified, ffmpeg selects the best streams and usually does it right. But from ffmpeg's point of view, video stream have higher priority than audio, so it selected the image art (marked as video) from your MP3 file.

To select the audio stream first from the second file, try

-i file_0 -i file_1 -map 0:0 -map 1:0

and then your other options. This will also work for MP3 files without image art (second stream).
