no support for HEVC 4:2:2?

ABC is testing their new HEVC 4:2:2 fronthaul today. Tried to open a sample of it in VRD6 and the program just closes. No error, nothing.

Uploading sample to your site now.

We only support 4:2:2 in our Pro version. Although it shouldn't just crash. It should throw up an error.

Per chance, that would not be the Australian ABC ? :D

Ah. I wonder, given it seems as if 4:2:2 may be going into the wild, is there some thought as to whether at some time 4:2:2 may make its way to the standard version ?

So there are broadcasters actually using 4:2:2 for the public version of HEVC broadcasts?

I'm not sure if the decoder/encoder we're using is capable of 4:2:2. I'll have to look into it.
 
PS: the ffmpeg decoders support 4:2:2 in Mpeg-4 and HEVC, so I don't see why it's a "PRO" only feature. we need to get out of the mindset that 4:2:2 is "pro" only, it's no longer a pro only format. It's going to become the standard for lots of feeds.

It's a business decision, not a technical one. I'll forward to DanR and he can decide what he wants to do.

To everyone who uploaded an ABC sample it's now working with the next beta of VideoReDo Pro. What format is ABC currently using?

Danr, it would be great if you would provide your pro customers with at least one beta per v6 to test. But you do not even answer e-mails and inquire.

4:2:2 is under warranty no standard for any tv station. No consumer device can represent 4:2:2. That is why the function in the pro version in good hands.

Where is the download link for the discussed pro version? I would also upload 1 or 2 test files in 4:2:2 HEVC, but nobody answers.

Until now there were some pretty major bugs in the profile grid used for Pro. I just recently fixed those and got them to DanR. I'm not sure when he'll put out a Pro beta, but at least now he's able to without it being completely broken.

Okay, I don't understand why you don't take test files. I would upload something.

Since there is no beta for the pro version yet, I wanted to test the suite V6 beta. I downloaded the https://videoredo.net//beta/VRDTVS-6-4-89-796a.exe and the linked window appears and I Accept is grayed out and cannot be confirmed. With cancel the windows close logically again.

What is the reason? I also have a licensed V5 suite.

Did not find a link for the pro version.

Do you have any broadcast style test files at all? HEVC 4:2:2, high data rate as usual on broadcast?

Again: Why don't you accept broadcast files for testing? How do you want to fix the deficiencies?

Hi, Dan,

the pro beta cannot open a single broadcast file. Again and again the same error messages as in the screenshot below.

I have tried 4 recordings from different broadcast providers ... always the same error messages.

Once again: How do you want to fix the errors if you don't accept test files from us? Completely incomprehensible!

The users could also make the files available on free upload space. @ Dan ... that doesn't seem to interest you, does it? You should already accept the help of the users.
