I'm trying to transcode(below just copy) a/v streams from stdin and generate a thumbnail simultaneously. The issue that I get an error pipe:: Invalid data found when processing input.

Why is that and how can I fix it? Separately the map commands work just fine so I assume I'm incorrectly using the pipe functionality.

cat a2.mkv |ffmpeg -i - -y -map 0:0 -c:0 copy -f matroska 0.mkv -i - -y -map 0:0 -vf "select=gt(scene\\,0.4)" -frames:v 1 -vsync vfr -vf fps=fps=1/60 -codec png -f image2pipe 0.png

pipe:: Invalid data found when processing input
  • try to add --nostdin – bukkojot Sep 12 '17 at 7:50
  • It errors out. See below. Also how could nostdin work if I feed ffmpeg from stidin? cat a2.mkv |ffmpeg -i - -y -map 0:0 -c:0 copy -f matroska 0.mkv -i - -y -map 0:0 -vf "select=gt(scene\\,0.4)" -frames:v 1 -vsync vfr -vf fps=fps=1/60 -codec png -f image2pipe 0.png --nostdin Result: Unrecognized option '-nostdin'. Error splitting the argument list: Option not found – themihai Sep 12 '17 at 7:53

I fixed your command

       cat a2.mkv | ffmpeg -nostdin -i - -y -map 0:0 -c:0 copy -f matroska -y 0.mkv -map 0:0 -vf "select=gt(scene\\,0.4)" -frames:v 1 -vsync vfr -vf fps=fps=1/60 -codec png -f image2pipe 0.png
