Regression: mp3 duration estimated from bitrate wrong (bitrate guess wrong)

Reported by: hjr Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: undetermined
Version: git-master Keywords: regression mp3 duration bitrate estimate roundup
Cc: Blocked By:

Description

Bitrate is analyzed wrong and mp3 duration is way off then.

Recent win32 build

My guess is that this is related to https://roundup.libav.org/issue1954 (at least the build that introduces the problem is the same)

You can find the original file at http://usr.bandzone.cz/test/mp3/duration-problem.mp3 (~3.5MB)
I can provide much more files that are affected, if needed.

When I cut and/or recode the file, ie.

ffmpeg -i duration-problem.mp3 -acodec copy -t 5 ffmpeg-copy.mp3

and

ffmpeg -i duration-problem.mp3 -acodec libmp3lame -aq 2 -t 5 ffmpeg-recode.mp3

everything gets guessed alright, for lengths up to the original file.

Interesting thing to note, when I cut and/or recode the file with recent libav build, ffmpeg produces this bug again (and so does libav). I used the same commands as above, but with the libav binary. I'm attaching these files as well as ffmpeg output, the duration reported should be 5 seconds:

  • Reproduced by developer set

  • Version changed from git to git-master

I cannot reproduce any problems when re-muxing, but the original problem is a regression since r19300

With the recent build, on files remuxed by ffmpeg the duration is probed right, on files remuxed by libav (uploaded ones) the duration is probed wrong - just to clear any confusion here.

Versions between r19300 and recent fail on original file:

Maybe there are two separate issues? Because half of the problem seems to be fixed in git-master.

Before r19300, probing is fine, remuxing and probing is fine.
After r19300, probing is wrong, remuxing and probing is wrong.
After r_half_fix (git-master), probing is wrong, remuxing and probing is fine.

where r_half_fix > the_fork, otherwise libav would behave as ffmpeg git-master, which it does not.
