[TBA]: Los Angeles video

Since I was parsing the video for our matches, I uploaded our 7 matches to SOAP (although they aren’t showing up in the index, is that because they are mp4?)

I uploaded the first set of matches raw footage to TBA and will probably load the rest of the raw footage to SOAP, since I get a faster connection.

I’ll commit to parsing the elims this weekend, but it might be a while for the other stuff, so if someone wants to grab the raw video and start parsing, that would be great.

Edit: the video from Friday is interlaced, and should probably be run through a de-interlacing filter. I will capture it de-interlaced for Saturday

If you upload the parsed matches to TBA, I can get them in the database right away. I can’t get things from SOAP that don’t show up in their listings, and I suspect it’s probably the mp4 extension that’s stopping them. I thought Matt had fixed that so it displayed all video file types, but maybe he’s still working on it.

They now show up on SOAP. I’m leaving for the regional now, so that’s what’s available for today.

I uploaded the eliminations to TBA this afternoon.

I grabbed them all from SOAP but am getting conversion errors.

ffmpeg says:
faac: frame decoding failed: Maximum number of bitstream elements exceeded

Any ideas? I won’t be able to convert LA with this problem.

That’s an error with the audio. There’s actually 3 types of audio, as I was playing with the settings. Matches 1-57 are 1 type, Matches 58-71 (with one or two exceptions) are another, and 72-elims are a third. You might try a couple of each set.

What settings are you using for ffmpeg? I could try converting them directly on my linux machine.

FOR %%F IN (*.mp4) DO CALL ffmpeg -i “%%~fF” -ar 22050 -ab 56 -aspect 4:3 -b 200 -r 30 -f flv -s 320x240 -acodec mp3 -ac 1 “%%~dpnF.flv”

Any thoughts?

I got the same error, but the encoding finished and it seems fine.

I’m uploading the two finals matches as flvs to TBA. Let me know if they look OK and I’ll upload the rest.

They look great. Please upload the FLVs for the rest of them :slight_smile:

Thanks so much! :slight_smile:

They’re on the way

In case it helps anyone, here is the bash script I used to batch convert the files on my ubuntu machine. I compiled ffmpeg from svn tonight.

for i in $( ls *.mp4 ); do
	ffmpeg -i $i -ar 22050 -ab 56k -aspect 4:3 -b 200k -f flv -s 320x240 -acodec libmp3lame -ac 1 $i.flv
	mv $i.flv ${i%.mp4}.flv

I just started about another 15 videos uploading.

I will toss them in with the rest once they are up. I just started a conversion of Minnesota videos. We’re still missing videos from tons of other events though :frowning:

I just finished uploading the last of the videos. Let me know if I’ve missed anything.

I think qf3m2 was erroneously posted as qf4m2.

On a side note, someone at the regional posted the score for qf4m2 as qf4m3, with qf4m2 at a 0-0 tie. Oh well.

Thanks for all your work parsing and uploading these videos, by the way.

Are you saying that the 0-0 tie never happened? I don’t remember, and it looks like I don’t have any video for it.

The video for qf4m2 is definitely incorrect, please delete it.

I uploaded the 3 missing flvs and the rest of the missing mp4s are being uploaded now.

I have removed the video.
