Ok. I wonder what is the best way to move forward with this.
Recall the intent of the patch series: the first patch (which you
merged and added a correction)
uses this bits_per_coded_sample as an estimate for the "avg" bits per
as a heuristic for detecting wrong sample counts.
The trouble is that unless bit_per_coded_sample is set to the avg bit rate,
we are not doing a best effort correction to incorrect number of samples.
And if we set it above that value, this field really has no meaning.
So in my limited understanding, I would have thought
bits_per_coded_sample represents the "avg" bits per sample,
and not necessarily coding each sample in 1 or 0.8 bits.
In any case, your example shows that unless this field is made an AVRational,
this field could be meaningless for certain codecs.
IMHO, currently setting it to 16 for G.729 is far more incorrect than
lending it the "avg" meaning.
Any suggestions/thoughts on making this field an AVRational?
