I'm attempting to encode a video from within a c++ app using the VPU and H.264 codec. Before writing the code, I've attempted to use the existing mxc_vpu_test to see the quality and size of the output. When the encoded file is played using ffplay it runs over the frames very quickly and freezes on the last frame. Similar behavior was seen on other video players with this file.
$ ./mxc_vpu_test -E "-i 1mp.yuv -o 1mp.h264 -w 1152 -h 864 -f 2"
