The possibility not to use WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE to AVI

Reported by: v0lt Owned by:

Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:
FFmpeg changes the WAVEFORMATEX structure to WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE for AC3 multichannel audio tracks for files larger than 1 GB. This causes a compatibility problem with stationary players. The "-write_channel_mask false" switch does not help.

How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -i "1.3GB.avi" -c copy "output1.avi"
% ffmpeg -i "1.3GB.avi" -c copy -write_channel_mask false "output2.avi"

Please make sure that the WAVEFORMATEX structure is used when using the "-write_channel_mask false" switch. Or add another key for compatibility.

If the "-write_channel_mask false" key is used, then do not use WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE (if possible).
