asf container - HE-AAC stream detected as "unknown: none"

Description

Summary of the bug:

ok, so I'm a student and I help at my university with video recordings.
They have a system in one of their buildings for their beamers to record all inputs and the microphones' audio.

The system outputs an asf container that contains 3 AVC streams and one HE-AAC audio stream.
FFmpeg isn't able to determine the codec type of the audio stream, yet.

It's possible to use FFmpeg to extract the audio with "-y -copy_unknown -f data" into an .m4a container
Once the stream is in an m4a container FFmpeg is able to determine the codec type.

I'll attach an affected file, so this can be improved in a future version of ffmpeg.

terminal output:

[aac @ 0000021d8f1bc100] Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate

    Stream #0:0: Audio: aac (HE-AAC), 48000 Hz, stereo, fltp, 128 kb/s

My guess is that the demuxer isn't able to determine the codec type. Maybe aac in asf isn't even standardized. I actually don't know much about the asf container besides that it's from Microsoft.

The audio itself is mostly noise and some buzzing sound that is probably caused by the recording hardware.

If you need another larger sample file and/or someone talking on the mic, then just ask. I can provide those :)

comment:2 Changed 4 months ago by Djfe

Ok, done.

The patch allows ffmpeg to detect the stream as HE-AAC now,
the bitrate is wrong though (the number 1536kb/s makes it seem like it's pcm)

decoding audio-only appears to be working fine (the file is playable and has the correct length)

.\ffmpeg -i .\h1_av_175_H.asf -map 0:2 -c:a aac test.m4a

The console output is spammed massively by these two kinds of warnings though:

[aac @ 03a01f00] Queue input is backward in time
[ipod @ 04852400] Non-monotonous DTS in output stream 0:0; previous: 290926768, current: 290925744; changing to 290926769. This may result in incorrect timestamps in the output file.

copying the audio stream doesn't work at all, yet.
