#2430 closed defect (fixed)

AIFF decoding bug (zero length output file)

Reported by: auphonic Owned by:
Priority: important Component: avformat
Version: git-master Keywords: aif regression
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: yes
Analyzed by developer: no


ffmpeg cannot read some AIFF input files:

  • decoded output files have always size zero
  • although ffmpeg/ffprobe shows the correct length of the input file
  • in other programs (e.g. audacity) these files are decoded correctly

Tested with ffmpeg 1.1.3 and 1.2 on Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 - more details below.

Use the following testfile, to reproduce the problem:

How to reproduce:

ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -i testfile.aiff output.wav

Output of ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -i testfile.aiff output.wav
