I have to correct myself. The code I extracted this from (function  
avcodec_string) never uses the bit rate for  CODEC_TYPE_UNKNOWN, so I  
cannot even derive the correct behaviour of av_get_bit_rate from that  
for those cases. The only thing I can say is that neither  
implementation will change the behaviour of  avcodec_string.

As far as CODEC_TYPE_NB is concerned, I just realized what that  
is ..... so never mind
