Bitrate incorrectly detected when decoding mp2

Version: git-master Keywords: mp2 regression
Cc: Blocked By:

Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug:

When using the "mp2" audio encoder, the output file is longer than the input file by an amount that depends on the original duration.

In the example (5 minute) file, the output duration was increased by 2 seconds. For a movie length title, I have observed increases of around 10 seconds. The input content does not appear to matter.

How to reproduce:

Is this issue reproducible with current FFmepg git head?

Please provide an input sample that allows to reproduce this.

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by abc123

This is reproducible on HEAD N-66060-g971e0ec. It affects ALL input audio files, and I'm sure you have an mp3 somewhere on your computer to verify it.
