venc: enc_open: consistency failed

Code: Select all

678971.488: venc: enc_open: consistency failed
678971.582: venc: enc_open: other failure
678991.492: venc: enc_open: consistency failed
678991.583: venc: enc_open: other failure
679011.450: venc: enc_open: consistency failed

679031.539: venc: enc_open: consistency failed
679031.630: venc: enc_open: other failure
I get these errors after setting up a 'video_encode' component using ilclient and set it to executing.

Does anyone know what it means/what I direction I should be looking in to debug it further?

Thanks!

The codec ensures that the resolution and framerate fall within the restrictions imposed by the H264 profile and level specified, and will fail if you exceed them.
Check your encoding parameters against https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC#Levels to determine what has been exceeded.

Spot on, that was it! Had the level set too low and didn't notice, thanks!
