Summary of the bug:

When I try to inspect Aspect Ratio for a Portrait video (recorded by a WebRTC MCU) it reports 4:3 and 640x480.

I expect it to be 3:4 480x640.

This happen using either ffprobe or ffmpeg.

How to reproduce:

% ffprobe 402704584179446100.mkv
ffmpeg version 3.1.2 
built on OSX with brew

Please see attached video file.

Alright I figured out that if I use -show_frames it reports correctly, seems like is not safe to trust in the first frame

Well, actually there is a problem with this particular video, it doesn't allow me to seek so read_intervals is failing, I have to get them all. There is a workaround to just get the information of a frame in the middle of the video and nothing else?

While the sample is horribly broken and cannot easily be used to show a bug and some people will likely prefer the current behaviour, I believe that this will change in the (not so near?) future.
