i think his patch just conforms more to the spec.
why not apply it , and wait to see if it breaks anything? :)

i dont think anyone is insulting in this thread, just some
frustrations. :)

for michael and reimar : there is no sample that this patch fixes.

for j00lz: michael and reimar like having samples for patches or knowing
if this patch breaks any existing samples. i assume you've tested this
change on multiple dvb samples and hardware?

thats just how ffmpeg development has gone in the past. someone writes
a demuxer/decoder. then a sample comes along that is broken. then a
patch to fix it. repeat repeat repeat. but when there is no sample, its
scary to us to change the behavior that has worked for 10 years.

we value your contributions j00lz. we are just scared of changes
without samples.
