ffmpeg amix filter command execution never stops

Video Production Asked by Khawar Raza on October 28, 2021

Hello I want to achieve something like in this pic below using ffmpeg:

enter image description here

Initially I used below command:

ffmpeg -i input1.mp4 -i input2.mp4 -i input3.mp4 -filter_complex 
nullsrc=size=960x304 [base];
[0:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v0];
[1:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v1];
[2:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v2];
[base][v0] overlay=x=0:y=0[tmp0];
[tmp0][v1] overlay=x=320:y=0[tmp1];
[tmp1][v2] overlay=x=640:y=0[tmp2]
 -map [tmp2] -c:v libx264 output.mp4

It was working well but audio was missing in the output so I used below command to mix audios of input videos:

ffmpeg -i input1.mp4 -i input2.mp4 -i input3.mp4 -filter_complex 
nullsrc=size=960x304 [base];
[0:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v0];
[1:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v1];
[2:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v2];
[base][v0] overlay=x=0:y=0[tmp0];
[tmp0][v1] overlay=x=320:y=0[tmp1];
[tmp1][v2] overlay=x=640:y=0[tmp2];
[0:a][1:a][2:a]amix=inputs=3:duration=shortest 
-map [tmp2] -map  -c:v libx264 output.mp4

I don’t know what happened but the execution never stops. It keeps on going. I thought the input audio’s sample rate and channel types are mismatched, so I tried below:

ffmpeg -i input1.mp4 -i input2.mp4 -i input3.mp4 -filter_complex 
nullsrc=size=960x304 [base];
[0:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v0];
[1:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v1];
[2:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v2];
[base][v0] overlay=x=0:y=0[tmp0];
[tmp0][v1] overlay=x=320:y=0[tmp1];
[tmp1][v2] overlay=x=640:y=0[tmp2];
[0:a]aformat=sample_fmts=fltp:sample_rates=44100:channel_layouts=stereo,volume=1[audio0];
[1:a]aformat=sample_fmts=fltp:sample_rates=44100:channel_layouts=stereo,volume=1[audio1];
[2:a]aformat=sample_fmts=fltp:sample_rates=44100:channel_layouts=stereo,volume=1[audio2];
[audio0][audio1][audio2]amix=inputs=3:duration=shortest 
-map [tmp2] -map  -c:v libx264 output.mp4

but same result. The execution never stops. I think there is something with audio handling. Also currently if I remove audio portion and only output video, the output video stops when shortest of the video finishes. I want that the output video should have lenght of the longest video. The short clips should display their last frame until the longest video finishes. Any help regarding this?

Upgrade to v 4.3 and limit the duration of the base layer, which is infinite, by default. Audio is fine.

ffmpeg -i input1.mp4 -i input2.mp4 -i input3.mp4 -filter_complex 
nullsrc=size=960x304,trim=0:1 [base];
[0:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v0];
[1:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v1];
[2:v] crop=min(iw,320):304:(iw-min(iw,320))/2:0 [v2];
[base][v0] overlay=x=0:y=0[tmp0];
[tmp0][v1] overlay=x=320:y=0[tmp1];
[tmp1][v2] overlay=x=640:y=0[tmp2];
[0:a][1:a][2:a]amix=inputs=3:duration=longest[audio] 
-map [tmp2] -map [audio] -c:v libx264 output.mp4
