nBlockAlign at least is, thanks a lot!
wBitsPerSample is not, as codec->bits_per_sample is already 0.

With current SVN, audio is detected, but not really played, and supposed
file duration is way off (too long).
I rechecked, and first stumbled over another issue: lavf thinks this
video is 1920x1080 at 59.96fps(!), while mpegts detects 29.976. I called
the lavf calls with -ofps 30000/1001 in order to ignore this for now.
I analyzed the two avi streams, and found the following values in the
headers to differ:
dwTotalFrames $19 $27
dwLength $19 $27
- aud AVI Stream Header
dwScale $4 $1
dwRate $7d $bb80
dwStart $1 $642
dwLength $11 $60aa
dwSuggestedBufferSize $600 $5dc0
dwSampleSize 0 1
- aud AVI Stream Format
nChannels 6 2
wBitsPerSample 0 $10
Some variables of lavf:
which sounds perfectly sensible to me (1536 samples for 384kbit/s AC3
packets, 48000 Hz).
> note dwSampleSize MUST be 0 for VBR streams
I think I understand *that* part of avi...
- If the dwSampleSize is 0, then it's VBR stream, so its bitrate
isn't constant. It means that 1 chunk stores 1 sample, and
dwRate/dwScale gives the chunks/sec value.
So how can I check the chunk size? One AC3 frame is 1152 in this
case (384kbit/s), but where is this stored?
