How was the sample created? The aac bitstream signals 48kHz afaict, how is the decoder supposed to know that it is meant to be 44100? Or do I misunderstand?

I'm trying to determine the source of the video. I'll update when I have more details.

Note that Adobe Media Encoder was able to successfully manipulate this video and it runs properly in QuickTime.

Also, ffprobe's audio stream is reported with:
"sample_rate": "48000",
"codec_time_base": "1/48000",
"time_base": "1/44100",

The video was created using Apple’s AVFoundation framework. Two videos were set together in the timeline, and exported using the default setting for an MP4 (using AVAssetExportSession).
