out.avi seems to play fine. I don't know if it's a regression.

Is this issue only reproducible with libvorbis or also with the native vorbis encoder?

This is indeed a regression but the older (smaller) files were unplayable with vlc.

Replying to cehoyos:

Is this issue only reproducible with libvorbis or also with the native vorbis encoder?

The source encoder doesn't matter. You can use ./ffmpeg -f lavfi -i sine -c:a vorbis -strict -2 -ac 2 -t 100 out.ogg, the issue will be that same.

This is indeed a regression but the older (smaller) files were unplayable with vlc.

Were you able to point out the regression commit?

The behaviour changed in 15c6be8c / 5602a464

comment:4 Changed 3 years ago by Timothy_Gu

Probably related to #1690.

comment:5 follow-up: Changed 3 years ago by Timothy_Gu

Does remuxing to other formats (eg matroska) show this problem?

Replying to Timothy_Gu:

Does remuxing to other formats (eg matroska) show this problem?

No

do not put vorbis in avi. we should fail if user wants to do that.

Is there any evidence that what ffmpeg does is incorrect ?
what would you expect or rather which tool generates functional vorbis in avi that is not huge?
