That's just the problem description and the mail which lead to the bugfix 
in CVS. For new AVI-Files this is fine and it works for me, but I have an 
avi which I don't want to encode again and I would like to fix the header, 
but I don't know where I have to fix it. I know how to work with an hex 
editor, but I don't know how avi headers are composed and which bytes lead 
to the problem.
