I have an avi file and tried to check it as suggested here. But after a short while I just got a segmentation fault, without any other information!

How is it possible to fix/repair this avi file? Watching this file with mplayer just works fine, using it with ffmpeg or kdenlive is causing errors!

System: Ubuntu 13.10 Size file: 4.2 GB

Addition:

Here is part of the output(begin and end) when running the command (the FULL output is about 1 MB of text!)

ffmpeg -v error -i file.avi -f null -

Stream mapping:
  Stream #0.0 -> #0.0
  Stream #0.1 -> #0.1

[dvvideo @ 0x21f39c0] AC EOB marker is absent pos=64
    Last message repeated 1 times
.....
(These kind of lines repeat over and over and over. I really do not see a point providing them all. There are no build information. Interlaced in the output are lines like:
frame=  124 fps=  0 q=0.0 size=      -0kB time=4.00 bitrate=  -0.0kbits/s
)

    What's wrong with the avi file? Why don't you show the actual errors? Can you provide a small sample file that will allow us to attempt to duplicate whever issue you are experiencing? Your ffmpeg command and the complete console output are important information. – llogan Jan 31 '14 at 0:36
  • As mentioned in the question, I got a segmentation fault, without any other message output. Maybe I can enable some debugging for ffmpeg? If so, how? – Alex Feb 4 '14 at 11:29
  • I have updated the question with some of the output ffmpeg` created. If people want to have a sample: How to create this sample? – Alex Feb 12 '14 at 19:24
  • Yes, I do not think this is possible. Its about 1 Megabyte! If you give your email address, I can email you the complete 1 Mega-Byte output of the command !!! – Alex Feb 12 '14 at 19:31

    In this thread at least the errors of "AC EOB marker is absent" was caused by the x264 that ffmpeg was using, which was fixed by installing gpac-devel-static (on fedora). – harrymc Feb 12 '14 at 19:46

try using mencoder (the encoding part of mplayer) like this:

mencoder -idx problemfile.avi -ovc copy -oac copy -o reindexedfile.avi

(via http://www.kahunaburger.com/2010/01/30/fixing-an-avi-index-with-mencoder/)

Force index

mencoder -forceidx input.avi -o output.avi -oac copy -ovc copy  

Copy all

mencoder -ovc copy -oac copy input.file -o output.file
