Unable to decode ImageJ AVI with PNG compression

Reported by: callan Owned by:
Priority: wish Component: avformat
Version: git-master Keywords: avi png
Cc: Blocked By:

Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug: FFmpeg (via ffprobe) is unable to display stream metadata for PNG compressed AVIs created by ImageJ (http://imagej.nih.gov/ij/). ffplay is also not able to play the AVI. It is playable using QuickTime X or QuickTime 7 on Mac OS X and QuickTime 7 on Windows 7 but not out of the box using Windows Media Player 12 on Windows 7. VLC also plays the AVI correctly.

Full encoder source is available here:

Attaching the entire 285836 byte file for analysis.

How to reproduce:
