Would you like to elaborate?

Can you prove this is not bug in encoder?

comment:4 Changed 3 months ago by cehoyos

The look of the artefacts indicated an issue with the decoder to me, is there any reason to assume that the files are broken?

comment:5 Changed 3 months ago by richardpl

Yes. all other files decode ok.
