Summary of the bug:

In "av_get_exact_bits_per_sample" function,


return 4;

if (!par->block_align)

par->block_align = (av_get_bits_per_sample(par->codec_id) * channels) >> 3

which output 0, causes

Status: newopen

The problem is not in libavformat/aiffdec.c since you're encoding into adpcm_g722 and muxing into aiff, not demuxing the latter.

Either the adpcm_g722 encoder or something else further into the process before reaching the aiff muxer should set block_align.
