DL Vimeo Videos (1080p) not editable

RedRob-CandlelightProdctns wrote on 9/27/2022, 9:18 PM

I recently noticed that when I download a live streamed video from Vimeo as a 1080p video, when imported into Vegas20 the audio file imports fine but the video is just a tiny sliver.

If I run that video through FFMPEG with the copy option (e.g. ffmpeg -i myvideo1080pvideo -vcodec copy -acodec copy newfile.mp4 ... that opens perfectly in Vegas.

Anyone else run into this?

Here's the file as downloaded from VIMEO:

Here's the file after FFMPEG:

I'm happy to post more MediaInfo info if it's helpful..

@RedRob-CandlelightProdctns How are you downloading the files?

Vegas does not like variable frame rate video. (I see ffmeg still has variable frame rate but you are likely to find that having it converted to fixed frame rate will mean more stable editing.).

It's dash format, but as you showed you rewrap it as standard mp4 it plays fine.

Dash loads in Premiere, Resolve, Windows build in Video editor, probably every other modern NLE.

@EricLNZ They're videos Vimeo saved after a stream. Choosing the Vimeo "Download" option on the video, it presents choices of 1080p, 720p, ..., Original. Original is a .FLV file so I choose 1080p which downloads this .MP4 file. That's the file I'm trying to open in Vegas.

@todd-b So you're saying this is an enhancement request for Vegas, one that might be considered a bug by some?

I open downloaded Vimeo videos at any resolution within Vegas Po without any issues...... Upload the problematic one you have if possible, let me see.

It's been brought up before, they don't seem interested

Loads with no issues on my side, in both Vegas 19 and 20... But i am suspecting an external codec installed, is maybe making the process possible.

Over the years, i have several free & paid codecs installed on my system to aid Vegas in decoding as many video formats as possible, because of the wide gamut of video formats and content from various clients, and not having the need to transcode or rewrap saves a ton of time on content delivery.

Gonna do some further checking to see which decoder may be responsible for it....
