Function Documentation

◆ av_strerror()

int av_strerror ( int  errnum,
char *  errbuf,
size_t  errbuf_size 
)

Put a description of the AVERROR code errnum in errbuf.

In case of failure the global variable errno is set to indicate the error. Even in case of failure av_strerror() will print a generic error message indicating the errnum provided to errbuf.

Parameters
errnumerror code to describe
errbufbuffer to which description is written
errbuf_sizethe size in bytes of errbuf
Returns
0 on success, a negative value if a description for errnum cannot be found

Definition at line 105 of file error.c.

◆ av_make_error_string()

static char* av_make_error_string ( char *  errbuf,
size_t  errbuf_size,
int  errnum 
)
inlinestatic

Fill the provided buffer with a string containing an error string corresponding to the AVERROR code errnum.

Parameters
errbufa buffer
errbuf_sizesize in bytes of errbuf
errnumerror code to describe
Returns
the buffer in input, filled with the error description
